A preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Dana Williams was born in South Charleston, West Virginia and lived there until he was 14 years old, at which time he moved to Cleveland, Ohio. He heard the gospel for the first time at a little store front church called West Side Baptist Church. He visited the church only three times when the Holy Spirit dealt with him concerning salvation. He accepted the Lord on December 29, 1968. He felt the call to preach soon after. At age 19, he moved  to Greenville, South Carolina to attend Tabernacle Baptist Bible Institute where Dr. Harold Sightler was pastor. In 1976 Dana took his first pastorate at a little church in the mountains of North Carolina. He was there four years and six months. He then served as pastor of Temple Baptist Church, Newland, North Carolina for eighteen years. In 1999 Dana felt the call of God for full time evangelism. He and his wife, Esther, have ministered in churches preaching and singing in revivals, camp meetings, and conferences all across the mid and eastern United States. Dana and Esther reside in Wedowee, Alabama. They have four children and eleven grandchildren.

CURRENT / UPCOMING MEETINGS

     
 

December 1, 2014

We just said good-bye to the last of the 26 children as they went back home to their jobs and ministries  and school.  The Lord blessed us with the most wonderful Thanksgiving celebration ever.  Before everyone departed, we met at the "Williams' Chapel in the Woods." We were made to realize how very Special the Lord thinks we are, as we heard the children and grandchildren pour out their hearts to the Lord and to each other about answered prayers and the Lord's workings for the  year 2014 and give prayer request of what they desired of the Lord for 2015.  We're thinking about thanking this season, for gratitude is what the Lord really desires.  He doesn't need anything we have to give, He's God.  Why would we think our little bit of effort would change a heart or life or situation?  Yet, the Father lets us in on His workings.  Shouldn't we give Him much gratitude and thankfulness for Who He is?   The Lord has our undivided devotion if we are thankful, for in truth, a thankful heart will be a faithful heart.   We pray you will look in every situation, good or seemingly bad, to see God's grace working and His love shining for we are a Special person and people to our Heavenly Father.

Please pray for Bro and Sister Jason Peliser in New Albany, Mississippi.  Because of the death in their family we were unable to be in meeting with them this week.

Sunday morning, December 6th, at 10am we will be in service with the fine people at Poplar Springs Baptist Church, Taylorsville, North Carolina, Pastor Allen Fox.

Starting Sunday night, December 6th through Wednesday December 9th we will be with Pastor Danny Hardin, Mount Holston Baptist Church, 301 Graybeal Hollow Road, Bluff City, Tennessee.  Service time is  Sunday evening, 6 o'clock. Monday thru Wednesday evening, 7 o'clock.  Pastor Hardin and his flock invite you to come and enjoy time around the Word of God with us.

There are many churches having special services throughout the month of December.  We hope you will find yourself with other believers in thankfulness for our Savior's sacrifice of leaving the Heavens To introduce us to His Father so we could know HIM AS, " OUR Heavenly Father."

 

 

 

 

1 John 1:1-4

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard,

which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and

OUR HANDS HAVE

HANDLED

of the Word of life.

(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it,

and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life,

which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you,

that ye also may have fellowship with us:

and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son

JESUS CHRIST.

And these things write we unto you,

that your joy may be full

 

John is talking of handling Jesus, the Word of Life. The word handled here, in its root form, means to touch or rub until pleasant sounds come forth. As the old musicians use to say, “let’s make music.”  They would get together and pick, strum, rub, stroke... the instruments until they came up with beautiful music.  John (handled) rubbed and strummed until he ultimately touched Jesus and it brought forth a  melody and music for his soul.

We can say touching Jesus has always brought out the feel of a song and sweet music, praises unto Him.

 

?          Mary’s hands handled Jesus, the incarnate Christ. When she laid Him in the manger it no doubt made

           PERSONAL MUSIC in her heart.

 

?          Simeon’s hands took him up, (the Christ child) before the Lord in the temple. He began to praise God and there was the sense of

            PROPHETICAL MUSIC in the air.

 

?          Wicked hands even handled Jesus when they delivered him up to be crucified.  Little did they know they were making

            POWERFUL MUSIC for the multitudes who would touch him by faith.

 

 This New Year 1014, will you let your hands handle and feel  the Christ until there are psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord.

Ephesians 5:19  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.

 

Sweet sounds that were personal to Mary as she handled HER Christ.

Sweet sounds that were prophetic to Simeon as he handled THE Christ.

Sweet sounds that were powerful  to the sinners who accept THIS Christ who was handled.
