Colorado is Unchurched

Although Colorado tends to be in the middle of many national rankings, Gallup’s latest ranking of religious attendance shows Colorado is in the lowest 20 percent, ranked eighth with a variety of New England and a few Western Pacific states. Only 25 percent of the adult population claims to attend religious services weekly and 55 percent stating they never or seldom attend. The national medium attendance was 32 percent weekly, 21 percent nearly weekly or monthly and 45 percent seldom or never.

The top ten religious attending states are all part of the South and Utah. These are states where weekly attendance exceeds declared combined “seldom” or “non-attendance”: Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas and Oklahoma.
