I was looking at their website and didn't see anything on the website about groups for singles/young professionals. Any info from anyone who's been here?

For what, picking up the ladies?

I don't know anything about their singles groups, but I think Pastor Gray is amazing. It has been years since I have heard him preach, but I still remember many things he taught us. With some ministers you don't remember what the sermon was about on Sunday afternoon. Not him. I wish I lived closer to the church.

There's more to single people going to church than "picking up the ladies." Single people need spiritual enrichment, too. Churches ofter cater to married couples and families with kids, but single people are more overlooked (article below gives a good explanation):

I am a lady.... so no, I am not trying to pick up ladies lol. I am aware that church is about more than finding a significant other. But as a Christian, church isn't a bad place to find someone as I'm not into bars or clubbing. Jowel put it very well.

I was single in my 20s. It was very helpful to have a singles group to hang out with and enjoy doing things with outside of church or after church.

I built a lot of long term relationships (not dating, I am talking about friendships) through the singles groups at church. Most of us eventually got married and had kids, but we are still friends.

It is important to have like minded groups/friendships.
