A Match made in Heaven: How Singles and the Church can Live Happily Ever After

Overview

Singles and the church—a match made in heaven? Singles and the church go together like grilled steaks and vegetarians.

It’s true that singles don’t fit in the church—at least, not in the family-focused church we know. But maybe that’s not what the church is supposed to be. Maybe God has something else in mind for His church, the Family of God. Maybe God has in mind a place where everyone belongs—and that includes you!

Overview

Singles and the church—a match made in heaven? Singles and the church go together like grilled steaks and vegetarians.

It’s true that singles don’t fit in the church—at least, not in the family-focused church we know. But maybe that’s not what the church is supposed to be. Maybe God has something else in mind for His church, the Family of God. Maybe God has in mind a place where everyone belongs—and that includes you!

This engaging book dares you to believe that things can, and should, be radically different between singles and the church. There is a way you can make the dream come true.

“Essential reading for singles looking for their place in the church and for church leaders wanting to welcome them.”

—Albert Y. Hsu
Author of Singles at the Crossroads

“This book identifies missed opportunities and mistakes on all sides and provides a blueprint for building a stronger, richer, more Christlike church family."

—Jeanine Hill
PR professional and single adult church member

“In the growing body of Christian literature for singles, it is refreshing to find a book that looks beyond dating or personal contentment and considers Christian stewardship of singleness and how it fits into God's larger plan.”

— David K. "Kelly" Fath, Jr.
Singles Leader, Calvary Church, Fruitport, Michigan

The wearer of six bridesmaid dresses, Wendy Widder knows the single life. She also knows the church after spending a lifetime there in both volunteer and paid positions—and she believes more than ever that the two go together. Wendy graduated from Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, and is completing a Master of Divinity degree at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. She is the author of Living Whole Without a Better Half.

Meet the Author

Wendy Widder spent most of her twenties teaching elementary students and waiting to get married. Then she decided life was happening without her, so she started a collection of graduate degrees in Bible, theology, and ancient languages. After twelve years, five advisors, three schools, two states, and two continents, she emerged from the ivory tower and found herself in mid-life, learning new ways to live whole without a better half. She is also the author of A Match Made in Heaven: How Singles and the Church Can Live Happily Ever After (Kregel, 2003) and a book she coauthored with her father to help Christian teachers integrate a biblical worldview into their courses. Wendy blogs at wendywidder.com.
