Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance (1 Corinthians 13:7).
1 Corinthians 12:25–13:13
Nearly 40 percent of singles in a 2013 study described feeling isolated in their churches. One researcher concluded, “[Singles] . . . feel invisible and think about leaving.” That statistic doesn’t surprise me. As a single person, I’ve experienced feelings of isolation in churches composed primarily of couples who socialize primarily with other couples. I’ve also experienced awkward silences when I reveal I’m not dating, married, or even actively seeking a spouse.
Jesus said that He came not to be served, but to serve. We want to follow His example and be servants, whether it’s within our church, our community, or across the globe. Serving gives us the opportunity to use our gifts to benefit the people around us, and we grow in the process.
If you’re ready to serve, we’re ready to help you find a place to get started!
