Adult Christian singles are in a unique position in life. Although they may be part of a Sunday School class and/or attend Sunday services so they are fed weekly, but small groups are where people really have an opportunity to connect and grow!! Many small groups in churches are geared to groups like:
- College and Career Age
- Married Couples
Single Adult Christians may not have the opportunity to join a small group that focuses on bible study with life applications that are geared towards single adults! Single adults range from singles never married, divorced folks, single parents, widows, to those who are separated but not divorced. During the times of our lives ranging from times when things are “going well” to those “trying moments“, we need to be spending focused time in His Word connecting with fellow believers to draw near to Christ as we study the bible together!
The bible speaks about the “together” aspect of Christians. The Lord shares that there are elements of the Christian life and concepts in the bible that we best learn “together with other believers“!
Paul says in Ephesians 3:17b – 19
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Please note the bold faced words “together with all the Lord’s holy people”. Paul is praying for power for believers to really know the depth of God’s agape love for us, but that power is only fully manifested in a “together” aspect with others!
The Single Life ministry’s the ongoing goal is to develop and nurture an atmosphere of bible study in which everyone feels comfortable and safe to learn, grow, and freely share their thoughts as we study our Heavenly Father’s Word together!
You do not need to be an attendee of Calvary Chapel of Lebanon to join us in our bible studies!
Our bible study meets at 6:30 pm every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at Dairy Queen East 1512 East Cumberland Street, Lebanon, PA. If the weekend or Monday falls on a holiday, we do not meet on that particular Monday.
Many people and groups may have a scriptural verse or two that is special to them. The verse represents how the Lord has positively affected themselves as an individual. Our group verse is Colossians 3:1-2: “1) Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2) Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
In all we do or say in our individual lives as a single at home, work, or enjoying leisure time, we desire to focus on him who is the source of blessings. We wish to set the focus of our hearts and minds on heavenly things which are eternal and bring much blessing.
