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 thirteen grandchildren.

CURRENT / UPCOMING MEETINGS

February 3, 2016

We will be at the Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor Bryan Calhoun, in Newnan, Georgia tonight services starting at 7 o'clock.

Last Thursday, the Lord called two of our dear friends home to Heaven.  What a wonderful testimony for the Lord both men were and are to all those who ever came in contact with them.  Both were servants of the most High God and they gave forth the sweet fragrance of God and worship in their Spirit-filled lives, truly lived daily for others.  We would ask you to pray for the Quarles family and for the Dietz family.  They will be greatly missed, but we know they surely must be enjoying being in the presence of the One they served here.

 

 

SHEPHERDS IN THE DARK

 Luke 2:8-14   And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by NIGHT…

We use this scene where God chooses to make the Christ Child known to a few shepherds in the NIGHT.

Let us look at the verses below and ponder this thought of darkness in relationship to the marvelous works of the Lord in scripture and also in relationship to our own experiences with Him.

Psalm 74:16 The day is thine, the night also is thine…

Isaiah 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness…

Micah 7:8… when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

Lamentations 3:6 He hath set me in dark places…

Psalm 77:6 I call to remembrance my song in the night…

I Kings 8:12 …The LORD said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.

2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness…

1 Peter 2:9 …that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:

Note also: 

The Passover in Egypt took place at night

Israel left Egypt at night (Redemption)

Splitting of the Red Sea was by night

The Manna fell at night

Jesus walked on the water at night

John 3:16 was spoke to a man in the night

The Lord’s Supper took place at night

Jesus was betrayed in the darkness

Jesus died during the 3 hours of darkness

The angels sang to the shepherds in the night

 

 These works of God in the dark lead us to say:

A.     It seems God saves His Greatest Works for the night

B.     There may be more happening in your night experiences than you could ever see in the light

 Genesis 1:5…And the evening and the morning were the first day. It seems God started the clock of time in the dark and then He will finish it for us in the night!

 I Thess 5:2 …the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

 As the shepherds, we need God’s night to magnify God’s light

 It was Fanny Crosby who wrote over eight thousand gospel songs, and all were written in her blindness.  What glorious light has come out of her darkness.

DARK IS THE NIGHT

Words: Fanny Crosby   Music: Theodore Perkins

Written in 1868

Dark is the night, and cold the wind is blowing,    Nearer and nearer comes the breaker' roar

Where shall I go, or whither fly for refuge?  Hide me my Father 'til the storm is o're.

With His loving hand to guide, let the clouds above me roll,

And the billows in their fury dash around me.

I can brave the wildest storm, with His glory in my soul,

I can sing amidst the tempest, Praise the Lord!

Dark is the night, but cheering is the promise, He will go with me o'er the troubled wave;

Safe He will lead me through the pathless waters,  Jesus, the mighty One, and strong to save.

With His loving hand to guide, let the clouds above me roll,

And the billows in their fury dash around me.

I can brave the wildest storm, with His glory in my soul,

I can sing amidst the tempest, Praise the Lord!

Dark is the night, but lo! the day is breaking  Onward my bark, unfurl they every sail,

Now at the helm I see my Father standing, Soon will my anchor drop within the veil.

With His loving hand to guide, let the clouds above me roll,

And the billows in their fury dash around me.

I can brave the wildest storm, with His glory in my soul,

I can sing amidst the tempest, Praise the Lord!
