With more than 350 UUA member congregations certified, a bad trait is showing up. Including a formerly dormant church now a member, but excluding three Canadian churches that left the UUA (so giving the most favorable numbers possible) the aggragate growth is a puny 811 persons in congregations equaling 37,918 members.
The good news is that there are two more “what are they doing?” churches worth noting:
Bell Street Chapel, Providence, Rhode Island, grew from 82 to 104 members, an increase of 26.8% Good going!
Unitarian Universalist Church, Fargo and Moorhead, North Dakota, grew from 66 to 84 members, an increase of 27.3% That’s great news. (A product of their construction project, or a cause of it, I wonder? Click here for pictures)
