Northern California Episcopal Church to close Feb. 12

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The closing of the church is a result of an aging congregation and others who have moved. There are no longer enough
remaining members to maintain its services or care for the building and grounds.

The congregation is saddened by its inability to do so, however, feeling that the closing of the doors will surely open God's work elsewhere in the community.

Attendance dropped from ASA 30 in 2003 to 10 in 2004 and has held steady there since then. Income dropped proportionally.  First Lutheran ELCA has average attendance of 50.  Pity a merger could not have been accomplished.
