Single Mom with KidsLet’s Get Real

Single mothers find it hard to find where they “fit in” and find it hard to find community not just in their community but in the body as well.

Less than 5 Churches in the Greater Portland Metro Area have a specific ministry to single mothers.  Oddly, single parenting touches on all aspects of being married and being single all at once.

Single Parent families are the common modern family.  It is one the church needs to understand and come to grips with; it is not the ideal and most any single parent will tell you that while it is not what they envisioned, it is their new reality.  Now it is the nation’s reality and the body of Christ’s new reality.
