SINGLES PROGRAM VISION & VALUES
We recognize that every person is a beloved son or daughter of God; therefore, we believe the search for true happiness must be centered in placing the Lord Jesus Christ first our lives.
We desire that single adults recognize their abundant blessings, acknowledge each person’s uniqueness and infinite worth, treat each other with kindness and respect, and go forth with an eternal perspective of becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ and fulfilling their eternal destiny..
Single Adult organizations function best when they complement the existing organizational structure of the church in Proclaiming the Gospel, Perfecting the Saints, and Redeeming the Dead. Single adult activities are most successful when members focus on contributing to activities in meaningful ways, following our Lord’s teaching of “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” (Matt 16:25) Single adult organizations and members bless lives when they recognize the needs of individuals and willingly serve and support each other.
Our intent is to provide opportunities for single adults to build and nurture faith, hope, spiritual strength, and strong testimonies. Other goals of activities are to support and strengthen family life, encourage the development of talents, and increase temporal well-being.
We will provide a variety of activities and service opportunities that enable individual growth in a safe and wholesome environment that invites the Spirit of the Lord and fosters the development of healthy, lasting friendships and relationships.
Single adults accomplish these objectives by living Christian principles including daily personal prayer, daily personal scripture study, home evenings, educational opportunities, provident living, participating in church worship services and activities, and by serving others in the community.
The purpose of the Single Adult Program is to bring single adults ages 31 and older unto Christ by providing teachings, service opportunities, and associations that will facilitate the influence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ on important decisions throughout their life. This includes the following:
Becoming converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ and living by his teachings
Developing and strengthening faith, hope, and charity
Giving meaningful service
Obtaining as much education as possible
Supporting singles with their spiritual, social, emotional, and growth needs
Developing healthy, meaningful friendships and relationships, loving our neighbors and showing proper respect to all of Heavenly Father’s children
Preparing and living worthily to receive a current temple recommend
Preparing to become a worthy spouse and parent, &
Making and keeping covenants.

Our theme for 2022 is "LET GOD PREVAIL". President Nelson has said: “When we realize that we are children of the covenant, we know who we are and what God expects of us. His law is written in our hearts. He is our God and we are His people.” As the posterity of father Abraham, we are responsible for inviting others to gather into the fold through missionary, temple, and family history work. In doing so, we better prepare ourselves for eternal life.“
