This contentment probably accounts for the fact that 80 to 90 percent of the children who grow up in the Amish Culture stay and join the church.
The church provides security from cradle to grave for all the members of the congregation.
If sickness strikes, church support is there with labor and financial help.
The actual service usually lasts around three hours.
