A couple of months ago, I reported on my congregation being disolved and merged with another.
On Sept 1, Cong B merged with Cong A using the same Hall, thereafter using Cong A's meeting times. Also nearby Cong C moved into the Hall using Cong B's meeting times and Cong C's KH is being put up for sale.
I've since been to both Sunday meetings and both midweek meetings. At all, the parking lot is totally full, cars have to park around the corner and on the street. The auditorium is full and now more are using both library and school rooms.
Now, there is no potential for growth. If there are 150 attending each now, that is 300 total; it would be better to have them make 3 congregation of 100. But no. Now, there is less opportunity for people to comment at each meeting with all those people there.
That is happening all over. Just to sell building, the congregations will suffer.
