We've embarked on the final quarter of 2016 and it is hard to believe it will soon be a new year. With October already here, a couple reminders are in order! First, October is Pastor Appreciation Month. I would encourage you to find ways to honor your pastor and his family during this month! You might try an encouraging note, an evening out or some creative way to show your appreciation to him as he labors to serve the LORD and your church family. Check our website for more ideas on the Home Page at www.kjol.org.
Secondly, in October, the culture gives a lot of attention to the "holiday" that happens on October 31st. You know, THAT ONE! "Halloween" seems to get more and more attention every year, and as a result many churches and Christian organizations host events that provide a safe alternative to "Halloween." So, if YOUR church or Christian group hosts an alternative to this "holiday", please be sure to get the information to us soon so we share that with our listening family. We need to know the date, time, location, sponsor, any cost and contact information. And, again - let us know soon, please! Send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to (970) 254-5550 or mail to the address below. We can announce it on-air and post on our website's Community Calendar.
But wait, there's more! This final quarter of the year is going to be absolutely critical for us financially. It's been an "up and down" year...and right now "down" is ahead. Or behind...I'm not sure! What I do know is that we are still running behind our projections through September. We clearly need a strong finish when we close the books at the end of this year and set the stage for 2016. So, please pray and remember to share in these crucial final months of 2016. SO many have been SO generous (even sharing extra) and we are both humbled by - and grateful for - your investment in local Christian radio.
In all things, we know the LORD is faithful. Keep trusting Him with us!
