single@firstchurchwash.org

The Singles’ Ministry offers full commitment and support for the life of the single Christian. We believe and stand on Philippians 4:11 “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Our God wants us to live a lifestyle that is pleasing to Him while being content in our singleness. We have a vast array of fellowship activities planned for the year along with organized discussions and topics that singles are facing and may be struggling with. Our ultimate goal is that someone will be drawn closer to Christ and fully commit their life to Him!
