雅各書 1:27 在神我們的父面前,那清潔沒有玷污的虔誠,就是看顧在患難中的孤兒寡婦,並且保守自己不沾染世俗。


GCAC單親家庭事工創立於2000年,是一項服事單親家庭的事工,而非單純從事交誼、查經或傳福音的團契。單親家庭因為家庭遭逢重大變故, 對離婚或喪偶的成年人打擊甚大,對失去父母的孩子衝擊尤其嚴重,為協助單親家庭成員在危機後療傷復原,並持續在神的話語帶領下面對挑戰,單親家庭事工開始每個月固定聚會一次, 除研讀符合聖經教導的單親家庭教材,幫助失婚或喪偶者度過悲傷,重新建立人生方向,更協助單親父母學習困難的孩兒教養問題。

GCAC單親家庭事工服事的對象不限於本教會成員,也不限於基督徒,多年來幫助許多單親家庭重新得力並認識主,曾經與中華聖經教會共同舉辦單親營會, 而且成為美東「溪水旁」單親事工的一部分。GCAC單親家庭事工每年兩次補助單親家庭參加「溪水旁」主辦的退修會。

James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

What is the GCAC Single Parent Ministry?

1. GCAC Single Parent Ministry

• Formed in 2000. Ministers to single parent families to meet their special needs in trauma recovery, to seek God’s wisdom, strength and guidance in single parenting; to encourage, support and pray for each other; to witness God’s faithfulness in our lives.
• We minister to widows and divorcees: men and women, Christians and non-Christians.
• Meet once a month. Adults have a study/discussion topic, using Bible based materials. GCAC volunteers minister to the kids.

2. GCAC Single Parent Ministry is now a part of a larger network: By Streams of Water (BSOW) Ministry that ministers to single parent families in Chinese Churches in Northeast U.S. (Dr. Wen, YinKann is the CEO of BSOW Ministry). Being part of this network provides us access to retreats and Christian counseling; ministry workers also learn from each other. BSOW hosts two retreats each year for single parent families.
