Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness, prisoners suffering in iron chains, because they rebelled against God’s commands and despised the plans of the Most High. So he subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. Psalm 107:10-13
I sat in darkness and did drugs and alcohol for twenty years. Tired of stumbling, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior on November 18, 1990. This was my time of salvation and the beginning of my journey of sobriety.

Our Church is blessed with two wonderful groups of singles. We have our mature singles group lead by Terry and Cricket Morrow. The Morrows have done an outstanding job meeting the needs of this group. Jim and Chandra Dew will be leading our other group of singles. This group is for singles that are in the midst of their careers and need the fellowship and support of other singles just like them.
Jim and Chandra were converted to Christ several years ago in Atlanta. They were single at the time. They met in the singles ministry, married in the singles ministry and have been leading that ministry for over 10 years.
The Dews have recently moved to Athens to be part of the Church here. We were overjoyed when they placed their membership because we knew how they could help the singles in the church here.
Please welcome them and encourage and help them in any way you can.
Welcome, Jim and Chandra, and thank you for your love for the singles.
