Synopsis: It's not always easy being a single adult in a local church. Couples' Bible studies and family events can feel exclusionary. Married couples with families are often too busy and distracted to make time for relationships with singles. Pastors regularly make sermon applications to marriage but often neglect applications to singleness. Church members try to set up singles for dates and relationships making singles feel like they are problem that needs to be fixed. Churches create singles' ministries that, while well intentioned, can send a subtle message that singles aren't part of the regular church until they can find a spouse. It's not surprising that Christian singles sometimes feel like second-class citizens in a local church. But what if single adults are in fact a great gift and blessing to the church? What if in many ways singleness is even superior to marriage?
