San Antonio “Beyond Today” TV Recording Very Successful!

April 11, 2011

The special Beyond Today session recorded in San Antonio, Texas, on the Sabbath of April 9 went extremely well. Gary Petty recorded three new programs in front of the San Antonio congregation at 1:30 p.m. at the congregation’s normal meeting place.

Camryn Stetter and Sam Urbina

A particular highlight during the service was beautiful special music sung by Camryn Stetter and Sam Urbina. They did “Search Me, O God” based on Psalm 19:12 and “Think on These Things” based on Philippians 4:6-9, 20. Mr. Urbina provided ukelele accompaniment.

The media department team who drove to San Antonio to handle this special event included Clay Thornton, Clint Porter, Rudy Rangel, Jamie Schreiber and Peter Eddington.

As mentioned in an earlier post, the three new Beyond Today programs covered the following subjects:

Editing and final production will now be done at the home office in Cincinnati, with these programs to begin airing on WGN America and across Canada in June and July. Below are several photographs from the Sabbath service. Click on each of them for a larger version.

  14. I’m so happy that Mr. Petty is able to stay with his congregations and STILL contribute his valuable part to the broadcast. God always provides a way when we have the will to do His work. So encouraged by this and all of the work we are seeing the fruits of.

  15. We are truly blessed to have the current presenters for our Father’s Church – I can feel the passion of the presenters as they present the meat of their topics and it is inspiring to see them, with zeal, execute through the Holy Spirit the intended spiritual message of hope – we are indeed living in the end of this age and it is only through the power of the Holy Spirit can we be pleasing to our Father and the Son of man and thus we shall make an impact upon this world as we have been called to do – we will not be timid in the distribution of the gospel message but will with love, meekness and humbleness of mind and spirit be a true reflection of faithful ambassadors of that soon coming Kingdom being filled with that sealed assurance of eternal hope and life which we have been called to. Our Father and His Holy One will bless our efforts as it is He and His Son who will work in us through living faith to accomplish their will in us.
