Honoring Singles

I heard the best message on singlehood from the pulpit last Sunday. In fact it was the ONLY message on singles that I've ever heard!

Singles in the church are often overlooked. Singles ministries are usually made up of college aged kids that have not yet married, so those over 25, and not married, can often feel left out of the church if they don't really belong. In fact, in the message Russ presented Sunday, he quoted one single as having pointed out that the singles ministries are often used as matchmaking opportunities, as if something is wrong with you if you are unmarried by the time you are 25 or 30 years old.

Russ said that there is a place for singles in the Church body and that it is Biblical! His message said to Honor Singles and I recommend a listen to it HERE.

He also said something profound at one point his message...that what we imagine heaven to be is what we worship. Think about that!
