Last week on LifeWay Women All Access, Mary Margaret Collingsworth wrote a great article called, Reaching Out to Singles During the Holidays. Take a few minutes today to read her thoughts on how to make those in your life and ministry who are single feel loved, welcomed, and valued during this busy and often lonely time of year.
Here are a few highlights:
- Have you asked the single people in your life if they’ve got plans yet? It’s easy to assume that everyone spends time with their families, but many single people end up picking up extra shifts, or can’t afford to go home.
- Some of you may be surrounded by people, but feel alone. I get it. This feeling isn’t just for those who are single, either. We were created for community, and the holidays are a great time to make sure that we’re aware of those in our lives who may be having a hard time.
- I wish I could give you a prescription on what you or your church could do, but I think I would boil it all down and say this: don’t forget us.
- Whatever you do to reach out to the single people in your life, rest assured that it will mean something to them.

In the comments section, we’d love to hear how you are reaching out to singles this Christmas season!
