“Our congregation is much smaller than it used to be. We have around 25 people who come regularly now. The jobs are leaving, or the jobs that are left are working with the big manufacturing companies coming into the area. There are many technical schools where kids can get the specific skills needed to get the jobs- but you can’t get into the schools if you haven’t graduated or have your GED. And that’s a struggle for lots of the kids around here, so lots of them are moving to other places. But the people in this community are the best they come. They’d give the shirt off their backs for you and then some.”
