Overall, nationally, no religion is keeping up with the population growth.

Anything that goes beyond just a large gathering, such as using small groups to create a congregational life with their members, that's a significant shift in the organization of a Catholic congregation.

I do think there is a conservative gloss on American culture at this point in time, and you are in a red state. The conservative plant churches are adopting contemporary worship forms that resonate with people, as opposed to 250-year-old buildings and 150-year-old hymn books.

Anytime you have congregations worshipping either at multiple times or multiple locations, you run the risk of not having a robust, rich sense of who the congregation is. It's disjointed pieces and therefore allows for little cliques or niches within the congregation.
