ORLANDO, June 22, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Single Creek," a new documentary film about single adults of all ages and issues, airs this summer on two national TV networks. Produced by Lifestreams Media and released on DVD earlier this year, Single Creek is winning praise from church leaders, TV networks and journalists.
According to US Census data, more than 100 million single adults now comprise nearly half of all US households. Yet, the Christian church emphasizes a marriage and family-centric culture, fostering the stigma of singleness. This ground-breaking documentary gives a voice to the divorced, widows, single parents, never marrieds and those who have left the homosexual community. Single Creek urges the Church to 'see' singles differently while challenging single adults to live full lives through their faith and talents.
"If I hadn't experienced a divorce, this movie might never have been made," said Chris Lang, producer/director of Single Creek. "I witnessed God create something redemptive and healing out of something that was broken. The way we handle disappointments determines the quality of life we live and our impact on culture. That's why this film speaks to married people too."
Troy Miller, president of NRB Network, is pleased to broadcast Single Creek and stated, "I'm certain that our viewers -- both single and married -- will be inspired by Single Creek."
"Single Creek is a 'must-view' for churches, families and anyone who cares about singles within their sphere of influence," said Kandus Thorp, vice president of Hope Channel.
Laura MacCorkle, Senior Editor of Crosswalk.com, called Single Creek, "a refreshingly honest look -- thanks to sensitive, yet revealing, interviews -- at the different types of singleness present in today's society... Highly recommended!"
"This is a film of passion, sensitivity, transparency, sincerity, and vulnerability," said Dennis Franck, national director of Single Adult Ministries for Assemblies of God. Franck co-authored a study guide with Lang, providing questions and commentary for a 9-week curriculum and included with extended footage in the "Public Screening Edition" DVD.
