Attendance of Worship Services (not including weddings and funerals) (2006)
For the average American who identifies with an affiliated religion, less
than one third say they attend a worship service frequently (once a week or
more), less than a third attend occasionally (several times a year up to several
times a month), and the remaining 42% attend rarely (never or once or twice a
year). Debate about church attendance data.
Only 9% of Black Protestants never attended religious services during the previous year compared to 19% of all persons religiously affiliated.
Three out of four Mormons report attending religious services once a week.
Among all adult persons affiliated with a religious congregation, 37% attended Sunday school or religious education at least once in the prior twelve months. Among Black Protestants and Evangelical Protestants, a majority of persons of each group (about 54%) attended some form of religious education at least one time. Among Catholics only 27% attended any religious education.
