Mainline denominations have experienced continuous losses in membership since the 1960s and 1970s, a trend that gives no sign of abating today. According to a November 2006 report released by the General Assembly Council of the Presbyterian Church (USA), all mainline Protestant denominations studied saw membership declines in the ten year period 1994–2004. The membership declines ranged from 4% (Reformed Church in America (RCA) and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)) to 21% (Disciples of Christ).
