Single Parents

singleparents-logo

Welcome!

We hope you will join us for a class, a luncheon and/or a social activity and that you will find HOPE, ENCOURAGEMENT and CONNECTION with others!

We understand the challenges that single parents face.  We are here to help and encourage you! If you have children of any age, you have something to offer other parents and you can be a beacon of hope all the while, yourself gaining friends and connection with others.  Yes, you do get through this!

We would like to invite all the single parents to join in our regular Connection Events.  All connection events are open to you whether you have your children with you or not. Our goal is to give you a chance to meet other single parents at RPC, connect with them, have fun, and receive encouragement.

You are NOT alone! The single parent journey can often be tiring and challenging, but we are here to love you and support you on this journey! Come join us and connect with others!

Note: While the Single Parents ministry is open to men and women, our desire is to be a group support system for those going through the challenges of single parenting and is not intended to be a place to meet and find a future mate. We hope to provide a safe place for Single Parents to come, share and grow with others who are on the same journey.

Sunday Mornings, 11:00AM, Room 307 

Come join us as we share with and support each other as single parents! You can share as you wish, as you feel accepted and encouraged, or just listen to conversations about our experiences and how we have handled/are handling them.  We frequently discuss how to love our children through each stage of development the way God has intended, while allowing them to make choices and reap the harvest of their choices – good or bad. We will support each other through these parenting challenges as well as the personal challenges of parenting alone. Discussions and topics vary each week.  Sometimes we will be discussing a book, while other times we are just sharing what has been helpful on our journey. We hope you can join us!

Connection Events

We get together frequently as a group doing things like: dinner, movies, hockey, plays, musicals, Escape Room, etc. Please email for current events. We also like attending high school dramas, local musicals and plays and sports activities your child may be participating in. Please let us know when those are and we will let the others know. Check back on this page to see new events as they get scheduled. Also, be sure to check the “Single Life” webpage for upcoming events.

Note: All connection activities include the kids unless specifically stated otherwise.  Attend with or without your child! Activities will vary for any day of the weekend (Friday pm until Sunday pm) in an effort to reach everyone. We would love to have ideas and suggestions for future events. Your feedback is ENCOURAGED.
