CARROLL, Iowa—Single adults throughout Iowa came to the city of Carroll for Faith Baptist Church’s winter singles’ event. From 3:00 to 8:00 p.m., 30 men and women of various ages and backgrounds chatted, played games, enjoyed good food, faced off in foam-dart blaster battles, and listened to the Word of God. Steve Skinner, one of the attendees, provided the foam-dart blasters (the “guns and ammo”) for the event.

“Singles in our churches appreciate these opportunities to get together with other singles,” says Pastor Jay Chapman. “It is a blessing both for the singles and for the churches who serve them in this way!”
