Shades is committed to a dynamic and holistic ministry to Single Adults. Perhaps more than most, Singles need the church to empower them to live out God’s calling for their lives. Consistent with our mission to create fully-devoted followers of Christ, the Singles ministry seeks to connect Singles to God through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to one another through intentional discipleship and community.
The Young Professionals are a group of vibrant twenty-something and early thirty-somethings who are seeking to obey God where He’s placed them. As we navigate together the transitions of early adulthood, we minister to one another in Sunday School, Bible study, Discipleship Groups, Service, and social events. God has a call for each and every person’s life, and we hope to love one another and encourage one another towards obedience to that call.
Our Median Professionals are between ages 40-60. We have a brand new class for this group! Be apart of something new as this group grows, studies the Bible, and serves together. This class is taught and led by the Penningtons and the Musselwhites.
Our Senior Professionals are those more seasoned saints who are still faithfully pursuing obedience to God. Whether never married, divorced, or widowed, this group meets in weekly Sunday School classes, and can be found volunteering and leading in a great many ministries through our church body.
The Single Again Ladies are a group of women ministering to one another in the after effects of divorce. Available at each hour, the Sunday School classes provide a place for ongoing authentic community of women from many different backgrounds. The Wednesday Night Support Group provides specific and needed encouragement. The pain of divorce is real and no one should have to face it alone.
