Our Singles Ministry
Our Singles Ministry exists to lead single adults towards a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, other singles, and their community. It is important to connect singles in the same stage of life to form longer lasting relationships. We do that through strategically creating environments and events that are age specific, fun, welcoming, and safe.
Real life change happens within an authentic community. Become part of that community.
