Discussion Points

Over 50% of U.S. adults are single or single again (18+) [1]

Unmarried households now outnumber married households. [1]

Why do many churches design programs that only target 50% of the U.S. adult demographics and exclude the specific needs and interests of the other 50% of the U.S. adult demographics?

Where should Single Adults go to receive Biblical understanding and perspective about the following issues?

• Premarital education  • Re-Marital education  • Singleness in a family-oriented church  • Dating/dating again  • Relating to the former spouse  • Learning to forgive the ex • Shared parenting  • Blending families  • Healthy step-parenting • Adjusting to Widowhood  • Rearing kids alone • Accepting Singleness  • Sexuality and Singleness  • Peer Friendships  • Relating to married adults as a single adult • Financial issues as a single  • Career choice as a single • Loneliness  • Learning to trust again  • Divorce Recovery  • Grief Recovery  [1]

 

Are churches interested in the spiritual well-being of Single Adults?

Where are Single Adults getting their information if not from the church?
