The PURPOSE of Single Adult Ministry (SAM) is to better help single adults to understand, to live, and to demonstrate the five purposes of the New Testament church in today’s world by:

* Uniting through FELLOWSHIP.

* Developing through DISCIPLESHIP (mentoring).

* Becoming stronger through WORSHIP (prayer).

* Nurturing their gifts through MINISTRY.

* Expanding themselves and their ministries through EVANGELISM.

God has a divine design and unique PURPOSE for our life and we’re the only ones gifted to fulfill it! It is our vision, to affirm adults who are single by choice or by circumstance as whole, worthwhile persons, and meet their unique spiritual and social needs. We hope to build a strong single-adult constituency for the PURPOSE of edifying the church and evangelizing the lost.

We are looking forward to sharing this weekend with you. Plan to attend and invite a friend!
