New Locally-Produced Programmming
Two new locally-produced programs are starting on WIHS.
The first is Glory, Praise and Song produced by our new music director David Spicer. It will present sacred music that gives glory to God and praise to Him in song providing you with both inspiration and information while listening. It will air Sundays at 1pm and take the place of Sacred Concert Hall which is no longer being produced.
The second is God's Word is a Lamp and will start January 1, 2016. Jim Whiting reads a short devotional each day taken from the writings of the late Bishop J.C. Ryle. Join us for God's Word Is A Lamp, Monday - Friday at 5:39am & 11:09pm; Saturday at 7:20am & 3:37pm, and Sunday at 4:15am & 11:40pm.
Sponsor A Day Of Broadcasting On WIHS in 2016
As 2015 comes to a close, and you consider your year-end giving, think about sponsoring a day of broadcasting on WIHS in 2016! You'll be able to take your Christmas or year-end gift giving to Jesus and do something nice for someone special in your life while helping WIHS.
Here's how it works:
- Pick a special day on the 2016 calendar you'd like to sponsor (a birthday, anniversary, graduation, significant milestone, in memorial, in recognition of an important person in your life, etc.).
- Call WIHS at 860-346-1049 to express your interest and we will give you the details.
- We will help you craft an announcement that listeners will hear throughout that broadcast day saying that you are underwriting the day in celebration/memory of whatever or whomever you have chosen to remember.
- You will bring a blessing to the recipient in a very unique way, and support WIHS at the same time.
Meet The New WIHS Music Director
David Spicer is the longtime organist and Minister of Music and the Arts at First Church of Christ Congregational in Wethersfield. He directs the church's youth and adult choirs and is Director of its Biblical musicals.
Music has been a major part of David's life since since a youth. He grew up in Austin, Texas and took up the organ at the age of 8 after being inspired by the sounds of a pipe organ and singing. He won a scholarship to the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music and served at churches in Pennsylvania and Nebraska before coming to Wethersfield. He is also a graduate of Eastern Baptist College (known today as Eastern University) in St. Davids, PA.
He founded the annual Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival nearly 20 years ago and continues to run it today. The festival attracts organists from around the nation. On top of all that, David teaches a music history class two days a week at Tunxis Community College.
Mr. Spicer is married. He has three children and his wife has two children from their respective first marriages. The couple had twins together.
David will be responsible to approve new music, and maintain all facets for the WIHS music library. He will replace the Sacred Concert Hall, which airs Sundays at 1pm on WIHS, with a new program called, Glory, Praise and Song. He will provide musical inspiration and information in his new program. During the Advent and Epiphany Seasons, Glory, Praise and Song will be expanded from 30 minutes to 60 minutes, airing at 12:30pm - 1:30pm.
Meet the new WIHS Property Manager
Raymond Bennett is a devoted husband and father, church leader and friend. He has been self-employed serving widows and the elderly through home repairs and services, offering a cheerful smile and an encouraging word along the way. Often, around Christmastime, he would bring his children to visit these folks, singing Christmas carols and playing their instruments together. Since then his family has been sharing the love of God together through music at churches, retirement homes and communities and elsewhere. Ray's pastor gave Matthew 6:33 as a challenge to Ray and his wife Diane on their wedding day, and it has guided them to seek to serve God as they serve others, trusting God to meet their needs: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness: and all these things shall be added unto you."
WIHS Deck Repair
The majority of repairs to the WIHS deck have been completed! New decking was installed that replaced the old boards which had become rotted and hazardous. Additionally, changes were made to the staircase so that it now sits securely and properly on the concrete pad beneath it. Some portions of the railing may need to be replaced as well.
We'll let the new deck boards weather over the winter. In the spring we'll scrape off any of the old, loose paint from the staircase and railings. Then a fresh coat of stain will be applied to the entire deck.
We praise God for members of the Bennett family that provided the labor for the repairs at no cost to WIHS!
