I don’t know that Church, but it’s almost certainly with a dynamic orthodox/evangelical pastor and vestry. There are a few of those within TEC that have been allowed to survive and thrive...

It’s almost unheard of for a typical liberal mainline congregation to grow a lot. Without the good news of Jesus, church becomes a rather unexciting social club.

If the main message of the service is, “you’re a good person, now go out and be a good person to others...” one can easily sleep in on Sunday mornings, without needing to hear such pap.
