But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them that they remain even as I am I - Corinthians 7:19
Many Christians have different views about Valentine’s Day, what it represents, its place in Christianity and the life of the believer. Consequently, many people still choose to celebrate the occasion as a day honoring love. And because God is love, there exists a reason to celebrate even beyond a mere day. However, during a holiday that is traditionally geared towards couples, do Christian singles have a reason to celebrate?
Some would say, absolutely yes! Here in Baltimore City, there are even a few events that have been organized and put in place exclusively for singles, to help them celebrate and promote healthy relationships, friendships and fellowships among single men and women. Churches like Promise Land Church Ministries of Baltimore that host regular singles ministry classes will host a very special “Cupcake Social” on Friday, February 11, 2010 during the ministries normal singles ministry fellowship that meets every second Friday of the month.
