The goal of the DFW Christian Singles Network is to promote opportunities for ministry, fellowship, and friendship among single Christians in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
We hope to fill in the gap if:
-your church doesn't have a singles ministry -your singles ministry doesn't have regular activities -the singles ministry in your church is mainly outside your age range -you don't have a church home -you want to meet new people and make new friends
We meet as a monthly home group in the Arlington-Mansfield-Grand Prairie areas and plan various activities throughout the month.
We're to seek God first -- before any other relationship or endeavor. This group doesn't focus on dating or finding your partner in life. You are God's partner, complete as you are, and your single status gives you the opportunity to be of greater use to God.
What do we look like?
We come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and attend various churches around the DFW area. The age range is 30s-60s. We have a great mix of men and women with various backgrounds, experiences, and spiritual gifts. Some have been married; others not.
Afraid of being the "new person?"
25-50% who attend the monthly home group are first-timers. Within minutes you'll feel like you've been part of the group for years.
We encourage our members and visitors to bring non-Christian friends since we are 24/7 evangelists. From Rick Warren's devotional:
On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick …. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Matthew 9:12–13 (NIV)
"Jesus’ actions teach us that our witness to non-believers starts with friendship: We earn the right to share the gospel through relationship, where we show that we care about the person.
"The apostle Paul encourages us to find common ground with non-believers. Finding common ground is an act of friendship; it guides us to look for the positive instead of the negative in those outside the faith.
"When Jesus met the woman at the well, he pointed to what they had in common rather than the things he could rightfully condemn (John 4). As a result, she not only became friends with God, she brought her friends and family into the presence of Jesus."
We do not compromise our values; all gatherings in private homes are alcohol-free. We have the opportunity to show non-Christians that Christians can have fun!
Don't be shy! We look forward to seeing you at our gatherings.
