Family Turnaround

“I decided that I needed my life turned around and out of the turmoil. I have not been to a church since 1999. I stopped attending the many different variations when I was being judged for being me, for what I was wearing, and how I was as a person. My wife and I have had several hiccups in our marriage and it was time to take the leap of faith with my Father to lead not only myself but lead my family in the right direction. The Dwelling has opened my eyes better than any other place I have attended and it feels like a home away from home. I am still an introvert, but being a part of the Dwelling and attending the connect groups is helping me step out of my comfort zone a little more.” - Quinn

Finally Found HOME

“We have lived in Savannah for almost two years. We moved from Virginia, where we had a great church family. My daughter and I went to several area churches and just did not find the right fit. I was depressed and told my husband in December that I was probably going to have to talk to the doctor about going back on antidepressants. 

One day this past January, when I came home from work, my mom said, ‘You got some mail that I think you will like over there.’ I looked at it, and it was a mailer from The Dwelling Church! I read over the information and burst into tears! My mom smiled and said, ‘That’s the one, isn’t it?’

I came the first weekend and loved the service and the people. I came the following week, and when I walked in, some of the serve team remembered my name. I felt like I belonged here and that this was God fulfilling a promise that I would again have a church family to worship with and do life with! 

I am so grateful that the Akridges listened to the call to plant here in Savannah and for everyone on the launch team who made room for me. You all are the best!”  - Bobbie
