What we're about
Singles is designed to connect you with other singles. The ministry is for anyone who is 30 or older and legally unmarried. Singles has two primary expressions: a centralized monthly event and decentralized age section events.

Who can come to this event?
Anyone legally unmarried and 30 or older.
Why are people seated in age-specific sections at the monthly event?
During our focus group research, two important discoveries were made. Firstly, most singles desired to interact and grow with singles of all ages. But secondly, and just as consistently, individuals in the three different age ranges (30s, 40s, 50+) indicated very different values, expectations and life-stage interests. By offering an event for all singles but with age-specific sections, we aim to capture the best of both worlds. While some may desire to sit in a different age section, we ask that everyone sit in the age section that is appropriate to them, in order to maintain the integrity of this strategy.
Do I have to pay for dinner if I will not eat?
No - while we provide a dinner at each event for $5, if you choose not to eat, you need not pay.
Do I need to attend Christ Community Church to come to this event?
No - anyone unmarried 30+ is welcome to this event, regardless of church affiliation.
Must I be a Christian to attend this event?
No - while events will include Christian values and emphases, all are welcome, regardless of faith background.
Do you provide childcare?
While we may understand that childcare needs may limit your ability to participate in events, we do not have the resources at this time to offer childcare.
Is there an email list I can be on to receive updates and information on events?
Yes! Click here (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeLBdZ18_qLcXLFwSbFRfqJl2Ilw4egcbKNeDUY7Ia7CCtTfA/viewform) to be added to our email list.
How can I connect to community between the monthly events?
In addition to our section events, Christ Community Church has over 300 Community Groups that meet weekly, and are designed to help you belong and grow. While we do not offer Community Groups specifically for single adults at this time, we encourage everyone to get connected to a men’s or women’s Community Group.
