The desire of the Singles and Friends ministry is to equip a community of single adults within the church to encourage and edify the body of Christ, while evangelizing the community and world.

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. 1 Philippians 1:3-6

What we are all about

Sunday School & Bible Study

Sunday School
The foundation of the Singles and Friends ministry. The goal is to exhort and encourage singles to use the gifts God has given them to minister to the body of Christ, evangelize the world around them, and build a community of fellowship amongst themselves. Topics include book studies, character studies, Christian living, and theological issues.

Bible Study
A regular bible study is an open group, held every Thursday, led by members of the group at individuals’ houses.

Our Ministry to Others

We make ourselves available to help widows/widowers, single moms and women, and each other with housework/small repairs, yard maintenance, snow removal, and other projects as needs arise. The purpose is to encourage one another and those in need by practically showing love and giving of time and skills.

We minister to our college students by keeping them informed of ministry activities and keeping an updated list of addresses and email addresses. The purpose is to maintain a relationship with our college students so when they are home on breaks they can make a smooth transition into the Singles and Friends ministry.

Hang Out with Us!

We plan, organize, and promote monthly and bi-monthly activities.

Some events are also held annually, such as a summer retreat, a summer picnic, and a Thanksgiving dinner.

The purpose of the activities is twofold: (1) to provide a time for casual, friendly interaction between singles and foster the building of lasting friendships, and (2) to provide a means of introducing single friends (both saved and unsaved) to the Singles and Friends ministry at CBC.

Spreading God's Good News

Missionary Support
We receive frequent updates on the ministry needs of our missionary and support her in prayer.

Community Projects
Projects are planned to foster involvement in the Hanover community and enable the singles to be a witness to those around us by showing them the love and humility of Jesus Christ.
