I am--at the moment I'm writing this--the ONLY single at 'a church I go to' (I'm not officially a "member" of it, but their attendance doesn't often break 'the dozens'). A friend at the church I AM a 'member'-of invited me to a 'District Singles' get-together, and the (soon-to-be married) leader there announced that "we need more singles participating in the program" and asked us to 'spread the word' ... but why? I've never seen any reason for a Singles' Ministry except 'to help singles meet other singles to become couples.' (The reason I'm STILL single? something like 'I'm not the proper "part of a couple, waiting for its completion"*). But I'm seeing that a Singles' Ministry might exist for reasons beyond 'to get them singles married-up'---to help singles to live "right" although God himself says "it is NOT RIGHT for the man to be alone." (And yes, I know that this is not a faith-forum; but I'm just trying to a) find the point of having a singles' ministry in a church 'built on marriage' & b) trying to get some singles- & singles' ministers-over toPlease Log In to view this link!.) So a) what is a good "purpose" for a singles' ministry (other than 'to get them married-up') & b) how can we GET more singles to go to GraceChurch (it IS right next toPlease Log In to view this link! ... but then so isPlease Log In to view this link!, which is of course where most-if-not-all of those singles go and -is where I AM a 'member'). * Of course, I know it's just that I'm a non-standard 'part of a couple, waiting for it's completion'--I want to be something like a house-husband (one possible meaning of my middle-name)--but (as much as they want to be 'equal with men' in the workplace) women can't see that I'm waiting for one of them to 'take the responsibilities of a working-wife.'
