Conversations Around Singleness, Dating, and Friendship
Reality LA is committed to upholding the dignity of singleness in the church. Marriage is a wonderful gift but its not everything. The Bible teaches us that some of the greatest contributions to the church have been made through single people.
The circumstances around each individual’s experience with singleness are vastly varied. Some of us are longing to be married one day and wanting to learn how to date well. Others believe their singleness is a lifelong calling from the Lord. Regardless where anyone is, we want single people to known that they are family and play an integral role of making disciples of Jesus in our church.
Upholding the dignity of singleness requires more than teaching about it from the pulpit, it requires creating spaces where single and married people can hear from others in the church about their experiences as single individuals and can begin healthy conversations around such topics as:
• What the bible teaches about singleness and how to live out that vocation faithfully.
• The challenges of waiting and dating for those who desire marriage.
• Why community is so crucial for fostering deep and meaningful relationships in the church.
This event is one of those spaces seeking to address these needs. Everyone is welcome to join us, not just those currently single. We believe married people also need to learn how they can better care for and support their single friends in the church.
