Show Notes

The average church building holds about 200 people with only about 65 people in attendance.

Since 2000, the average congregation size has gone from 140 to 65 people on a Sunday.

A small church is typically between 25 to 200 people. But, 60% of church goers attend a church with less than 75 members.

Here are five reasons small churches benefit homeschooling families.
