The Decline of Rhode Island Churches
Michael Gryboski, Christian Post
The state of Rhode Island is experiencing a decline in church attendance and an increase in church closings, according to researchers.
Although growing disaffiliation with organized religion is a nationwide trend, in Rhode Island this trend is more pronounced. According to the Pew Forum on Religious Life, Rhode Island is one of the least religious States in the Union and Gallup found that only about 30 percent of the population attends church weekly.
