    Summer Hours

    Summer is almost here and as usual church ministries shut down for the next three months or so. The men's group at my church went on summer recess at the beginning of April. Anyone know the reason for this? I know turnout will be smaller but smaller isn't the same as non-existent.

    I would want an answer to that as well.

    After reading KingsGambit's response, I realized I phrased my OP poorly. Take two.

    In many years of church going, I've noticed they all shut down their ministries, small groups, etc. for summer break (May to Sept.). Anyone know the reason for it?

    Maybe we're beginning to see the bad fruit from the practice? (#3 in his list)

    The church I attended at the time did the same thing. The small group study I led decided to continue through the summer and we did so. I do not think our society is falling because we do not attend church seriously. I believe we are attending church more casually because of the failing values of society.
