I drove by a local church and noticed that the name was changed. This was not a denomination name, but just a descriptive noun. I saw this church get built, as it was on my old running route. There was a vinyl sign with new name covering the more permanent, built sign. I wondered what would cause a church to change its name, although I did suspect that there were money/attendance reasons in the background. When I looked up both churches online, there was an interesting difference. The old church said they were merging with the new church. Makes sense. But new church only said they were moving to a new location. There was no mention of absorbing the old church. Maybe there’s more going on here than it seems.
