One in five Americans still may not know whether they'll attend Easter services on Sunday -- and nearly 40 percent say they won't be attending church at all Easter weekend, including about half of those who say they rarely go to church, according to a new LifeWay Research survey, Christianity Today reports. Previous LifeWay surveys have found that Easter is among the top three highest-attended Sundays of the year for most churches, but this year's survey found that "just over half of self-identified Christians say they will attend Easter services. Protestants (58 percent) and Catholics (57 percent) are most likely to say they plan on attending Easter services, followed by 45 percent of nondenominational Christians."
