  3. I believe it is excellent strategy to give the time to inform that there are local churches available and how and where to find them. Hopefully this fairly new advertising on the program will help in the “missing rung” in bringing more people to UCG.

  4. This looks like the first time we in Canon City, Colorado will be able to see the telecast live–this Sunday on Charter channel 52 at 10 a.m. Normally watch it some time during the day off the Internet. Will be praying for the 10 week test and watching it on Ion this Sunday.
