The Future of Jewish Prayer Services (if there even is one?)

I consider myself a born-again Jew. My mother is Jewish but she never raised me with any bit of Jewish culture or religion and as I grow into my young adulthood I have really been exploring what it means to be Jewish and learning about the holidays, the communities, etc. I have watched a few Shabbat morning services and have noticed that the entire room is filled with older people. This is the same across a handful of synagogues in my area. This makes me wonder what Jewish life, particularly as it relates to synagogue services, will look like in a decade or so when these people are gone. I hate to admit that these services are very boring and I understand the religious and cultural significance of all of the prayers, but maybe something needs to be revamped to inspire younger people to want to show up to services.
