North Carolina has the 11th largest Hispanic population in the United States. Hispanics represent 7.5 percent of Greensboro's population.* As our community's population diversifies, resources and services for the different ethnic groups need to grow to keep pace with the demographic shift. Evidence of this change can be found in our religious community. In their data base, the City of Greensboro identifies 85 different religious groups, data that have shifted considerably. For example, from the 2000 to 2010 census, individuals affiliating with the American Baptist Churches of the USA decreased by 73% and the Church of Latter Day Saints, increased by 191%.
Another trend is for religious communities to offer services in languages other than English. Daystar is one such place. As advertised on the above banner, services in Spanish are offered every Sunday at 2:00 at the Westover Terrace campus. This gives the Spanish speaking community of Greensboro a chance to participate in a non-denominational, Christian church
Daystar Church, founded in Greensboro in 1997, has three campuses in Greensboro. They also have an online option for worship. Regardless of what you believe and how you worship, to be sure, there is something for everybody in Greensboro. Y aquí, se habla español; and Korean, and Russian, and Greek, and Hindi, and Urdu, and Hebrew, and more... Happy Sunday, dear readers.
