Work at Church and Church-Based Emotional Support Among Older Whites, Blacks, and Mexican Americans

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal, and R. David Hayward. 2014. "Work at Church and Church-Based Emotional Support Among Older Whites, Blacks, and Mexican Americans." Journal of Religion, Spirituality and Aging, 26(1): 22-40.

This study aims to assess how social relationships form at church. The data are from older whites, older blacks, and older Mexican Americans. Our conceptual model proposes that: (1) conservative Protestants are more committed to their faith; (2) people who are more religiously committed attend worship services more often; (3) individuals who go to church more often perform more volunteer work; and (4) people who perform more work at church will receive more emotional support from their fellow church members. Support was found for these hypotheses. Several race differences emerged. The most important race difference suggests that the relationship between work at church and social support is strongest for older whites. © 2014 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
