Abstract: The local church has traditionally provided services to the elderly. During this century, the role of government in human services has grown and partially replaced that of local churches. Re-cent reductions in government spending on human services, however, have led to a rediscovery of the local church by the service system. Research has focused mainly on the potential for link-ages between churches and the social services network.
