Single Parent Ministry Ideas

Here are ideas to get you started reaching out to single
parents:

  • Ask single parents what their needs are (time away from the
    kids, finances) and help meet those needs.
  • Form a committee with key single parents. Empower single
    parents to make the ministry what they need it to be-let them “own”
    the ministry.
  • Pray for single parents — ask God to give them strength and
    encouragement.
  • Encourage families and couples to welcome single parents into
    their homes.
  • Start a support group.
  • Don’t overburden singles. They often get too involved without
    getting their needs met.
  • Have a parents night out. (Singles, like married people, need
    time for themselves.)
  • Offer an active singles life separate from the Sunday school
    class. And when planning social events, don’t place the emphasis on
    couples.
  • Provide baby-sitting because finances are tough for most single
    parents.
  • Set up a fund where single parents (and other church members)
    can get a loan. Help with financial hardships.
  • Consider organizing an old-fashioned co-op where single parents
    (and other church members) can exchange services without money.
    People with expertise in sewing, bookkeeping, mechanical work, and
    so on can participate.
