The Singles Ward is a 2002 comedy film, directed by Kurt Hale and written by Kurt Hale and John E. Moyer based on his own life as a stand up comedian and single member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Like The R.M., and other films which followed it, The Singles Ward's target audience is members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and citizens of Utah. As such, references to and parodies of the Mormon and Utah subcultures pervade the film and are unlikely to be completely understood by non-Mormons. The Singles Ward is one of the new line of LDS comedy films by Kurt Hale and John Moyer.

The Singles Ward was followed in 2007 by The Singles 2nd Ward.

Plot

After faithfully serving a full time mission for his church and marrying, Jonathan Jordan finds himself recently divorced and once again a member of the LDS single adult world— a world whose ultimate goal is Eternal Marriage. Disenchanted, Jordan stops going to church. He even creates a stand up routine lampooning the Mormon way of life. His resistance to the church continues until he falls for Cammie Giles, a member of the local singles ward. Suddenly, Jordan finds going to church more appealing. But is he attending church again just to impress her?
