Recently, at an airport, I saw an article about a church on the cover of Details Magazine. Since I believe this was the first church-related article they’ve done since 1981, I was surprised. The headline was:
“The hottest pickup spot in Hollywood … is a church.”
Turns out they did an expose on Reality LA, a growing church out in California. It’s apparently, according to Details Magazine, a great place to meet singles. It made me interested though, how come we haven’t talked much about church and dating on Stuff Christians Like? There are a handful of articles, but with more than 850, that’s not a lot.
So let’s talk about dating in the context of church today.
Have you ever taken a date to church?
Have you ever met a boyfriend or girlfriend at church?
Have you ever had an awkward moment where church and dating intersected?
Is the singles group at your church thriving or do people act like being single is some sort of disease that should be cured with a marriage ASAP?
Regardless of if you’ve been married for 10 years or are dating right now, what do you think about the church and dating?
