Presbyterians Have the Highest Level of Church Involvement Among Mainliners
The Pew Research Center has an interesting study of just how involved in church the members in different denominations are.
In general, evangelicals are twice as involved in their churches as mainliners - 41% "highly involved" for evangelicals on average, versus only 20% for the average mainline denomination.
Among mainline Protestant denominations, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) members show the highest level of involvement, with 31% highly involved.
Interestingly, that is about the same proportion highly involved in the evangelical Presbyterian Church of America.
