A Field Guide to Presbyterian Congregations:
Are You a Typical Presbyterian?

Are you a typical Presbyterian? How many of these statements describe you?

  • I've been attending my current congregation for more than 5 years.

  • I participate in a group activity in my congregation (e.g., Sunday school, prayer group, Bible study, fellowship).

  • I serve in a leadership position in my church.

  • I regularly give 5% or more of my income to the church.

  • What I like best about my church is the sermons.

  • I'm involved in at least one social service or advocacy group in my community.

  • I'm over the age of 50.

  • I voted in the last presidential election.
If some of these statements don't describe you, you're part of the great diversity of the Presbyterian Church!
