49 percent of Nevada residents are highly religious but only 31 percent attend religious services

A mass shooting is a test for any religious institution, and a massacre like the one that left 58 dead and hundreds injured in Las Vegas, even more so.
 
Hope Church, a growing multi-ethnic congregation that attracts 3,000 people each weekend, says it’s up to the challenge.
 
“This is the day when we get the opportunity to really rise up and serve the city and love the city and demonstrate the love of God for the city,” said Vance Pitman, the founder and senior pastor.
 
Pitman knows his work is cut out for him. Nevada, and Las Vegas in particular, is one of the less religious states in the country. A recent Pew Center study found that 49 percent of Nevada residents are “highly religious,” but only 31 percent attend religious services. [Article].
