Singles 30+ is designed to connect you with other singles, and is for anyone who is 30 or older and legally unmarried. Singles 30+ has two primary expressions: a centralized monthly event and decentralized age section events.
THE MONTHLY EVENT: Our monthly centralized event occurs on the first Friday of every month. We meet at the St. Charles Campus of Christ Community Church - 37W100 Bolcum Rd. Saint Charles, IL 60175. Map HERE. To enter the building, you may park in the main lot (take a left at the fork in the driveway) and enter through door A. Alternatively, you may take a right at the fork, park on the North side of the building and enter through door P (directly to the Hub). Here's what a typical event looks like:
- 6:30pm start time (no registration/RSVP required)
- A community dinner ($5 per person)
- Mixer activities
- Worship band
- Spiritual focus: Testimony, Teaching, Table Discussions
- Social time (e.g. coffee, dessert, and games)
SECTION EVENTS: Those who would like to connect with others in their age section (30s, 40s, and 50+) outside of the monthly event are encouraged to take advantage of section-specific events hosted by Section Leaders.

Who can come to this event?
Anyone legally unmarried and 30 or older.
Why are people seated in age-specific sections at the monthly event?
During our focus group research, two important discoveries were made. Firstly, most singles desired to interact and grow with singles of all ages. But secondly, and just as consistently, individuals in the three different age ranges (30s, 40s, 50+) indicated very different values, expectations and life-stage interests. By offering an event for all singles but with age-specific sections, we aim to capture the best of both worlds. While some may desire to sit in a different age section, we ask that everyone sit in the age section that is appropriate to them, in order to maintain the integrity of this strategy.
Do I have to pay for dinner if I will not eat?
No - while we provide a dinner at each event for $5, if you choose not to eat, you need not pay.
Do I need to attend Christ Community Church to come to this event?
No - anyone unmarried 30+ is welcome to this event, regardless of church affiliation.
Must I be a Christian to attend this event?
No - while events will include Christian values and emphases, all are welcome, regardless of faith background.
Do you provide childcare?
While we may understand that childcare needs may limit your ability to participate in events, we do not have the resources at this time to offer childcare.

How can I connect to community between the monthly events?
Community Groups meet weekly, and are designed to help you belong and grow. While we do not offer Community Groups specifically for single adults at this time, we encourage everyone to get connected to a men’s or women’s Community Group. Find a group that fits you at ccclife.org/communitygroups.
