6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

While numerous U.S. churches have been adding Spanish services to meet the needs of new immigrants, an increasing number of Hispanic congregations are starting English services. It's an effort to meet the demands of second- and third-generation Hispanics, keep families together and reach non-Latinos. An '07 Pew survey found 77% of first-generation, churchgoing Hispanics choose churches with Hispanic clergy, Spanish-language services and a mostly Hispanic congregation. But as they become more Americanized, the hold loosens: 53% of second-generation Latinos attend ethnic congregations. It drops to 42% for the third generation and higher. (Saratogian.com 8/23/07)
