TV MINISTRY CHALLENGE
Many of us are blessed with good health so that we can regularly attend our favorite church services. However, there are some who do not have this privilege. With the leading of the Holy Spirit Liberty’s television ministry was started to fulfill this need. By having our service on a local television channel, we afford our local shut-ins and others who cannot make it to the church the opportunity to attend church via their televisions. In addition, we are able to share Christ’s message of hope with viewers who are not Liberty members. And because of the affiliation of WGNM TV 64 with their sister station WYBU 16 in Columbus, Liberty UMC is on the air there, as well, at no extra cost.
Because of current budget shortfalls at Liberty, the Finance Committee voted to cut the television ministry out of this year’s budget. But a church member has come forward and donated funds toward the $5,000 needed for a years’ worth of programming. This is a wonderful start to restoring the ministry to the budget, and we are challenging Liberty’s congregation to make donations, as well, so we can continue this vital ministry in our church. Thank you for your support of this program.
At the next Administrative Council Meeting on January 22nd there will be a brief Charge Conference to address a statistical correction.
Please remember to get any news items for the bulletin to the Church office by 12 Noon on Tuesday, in order for us to have it ready for review at our Staff Meeting on Wednesday mornings. Thank you!
