SINGLE PARENTS MINISTRY
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Time and time again, we find it written in the Bible that we are to care for one another. We are to care for the poor, the widowed and the orphaned. Take care of the least of these! As single parents, we sometimes feel like “the least of these”. Life’s circumstances may not always be the most ideal, and as single parents, we often find it difficult to find someone to help us, let alone care for us.
Serenity Village Community Church provides a comfortable and inviting atmosphere where single parents can finally put their feet up, let their hair down and share their challenges as well as their victories. We are free to fellowship with each other and benefit from one another’s experience, strength and hope. We share our spiritual journeys, our personal valleys, and encourage each other to look at challenges as opportunities. We have volunteers who will take care of the children for 3-4 hours so that moms and dads can take a night off for themselves. We also incorporate fun, family events where parents and kids can enjoy each other’s company and just be themselves.
The experience of being a single parent is extremely special. We have a unique bond with our children that not everyone may understand, but if we have God at the center of our hearts and homes, we know we can do ALL things through Christ who gives us strength! We have also learned to be thankful IN all circumstances. How much more thankful can we be for the beautiful gifts that God has given us: our precious children!
