Ms. Raymond, who currently has no income, says she comes once a month to this church which she says has the best food pantry in the area. The church operates the food pantry in the spirit of community outreach. Those who receive food here will be encouraged to come to the new health clinics, marriage classes and Bible studies that will be offered free of charge by the church at a new location. Despite a decline in religious attendance, especially in the northeast, church attendance here is growing. (Photo by Melanie Stetson Freeman/The Christian Science Monitor via Getty Images)
