I just came across some interesting statistics produced by the Glenmary Report in 2000 concerning church and religious involvement in Kentucky and Fayette County.
* 10% of people in Fayette County attend church on any given Sunday
* 47.3% of people in Fayette County “adhere to a religion.”
* 27.4% of people in Fayette County are “members of a religious group.”
As you might expect, these numbers are slightly lower than the state average (12.8%, 58%, and 33% respectively). Click here to see the report and the results for all counties in Kentucky. So what do you think? Do we need more churches? Yes…that is a trick question. Think it through before you respond below! 🙂
