During 2016 and 2017, the Center for Middletown Studies completed the Muncie Churches and Civic Engagement Project.  It involved a series of oral history interviews with leaders of local faith communities with the aim of documenting and exploring the changing role of churches in the civic life of Muncie and the surrounding area.  The impetus for the project stemmed from the observation that churches appeared to be among the few voluntary institutions that still attracted substantial, active memberships in the midst of local economic decline.  Connolly’s talk will review the project’s key findings and consider their implication for civic affairs in Muncie.
