The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of an urban community which is in the process of changing status upon the life of' a church in that community. To proceed in this study it was first necessary to establish the presence of distinguishable communities in an urban setting and to determine the pattern of change which might be present in such communities. However, before the role of the church in such communities could be examined, the writer felt it necessary to present a brief and admittedly incomplete study of urban social forces upon the individual. This procedure was followed so that the place of the community in a person's values might be better understood and evaluated.
