Media Ministries Turns 40!

Forty years ago, on the first Sunday of March, 1975, a crew of volunteers flipped the switch to begin broadcasting our weekly church services live to those who cannot attend in person. Through this ministry, which includes continuous weekly broadcasts/webcasts, 28 years on broadcast television and 12 years of live internet streaming, this dedicated crew of volunteers continues to produce this weekly outreach ministry that enhances the lives and worship experiences of thousands of people each year.

To recognize the tireless work of this amazing volunteer-driven ministry, we have declared March 2015 as Media Ministry Month.
