We will leave the Ark around 4-5 pm, ET, arriving back home around 8-9:30 pm. Other things you should know: • Consider bringing along snacks, a sack lunch or other food items for the two days, if you so choose. The museums have restaurants where you may choose to eat at your own expense, and there are restaurants near the hotel. • Bring along a Bible, notebook, pen and camera. • Dress comfortably and casually, as it will be a long ride there and back. Maybe layer your clothing (weather dependent); you can leave things on our locked bus. • There will be sharing and testimony time on the bus, “no pressure”, but for those willing, consider sharing something that the Lord has taught you lately. 🙂 • A group photo will be taken when we arrive. • Our planetarium viewing will be a specific scheduled time. We’ll know when, once we check in. So be aware if you wander off, you may miss it. • We will stop for dinner on our ride home. This cost will be your expense. • Additional information about the museum can be accessed at www.creationmuseum.org • Additional information about the Ark Experience at https://arkencounter.com To sign up and register for this trip, fill out the WUFOO form at this link: Sign Up Here By Filling Out The Form

Historic Radio Broadcast of “It’s a Wonderful Life”

“It’s a Wonderful Life” the radio version, has come together nicely, as about 50 cast members have been meeting for months to bring this beloved story to life over the broadcasts of Great News Radio.
This radio drama will be produced in the Great News Radio studio, so that it will be broadcasted a few different times during the Christmas Season. It’s a “Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play” written by Joe Landry was written to bring Frank Capra’s film to life as a stage play. The play script follows the film script closely. We’ve received permission from the author to create a radio drama with his script and broadcast it.
The story is set in the 1930’s and 40’s in upstate New York. George Bailey, an ambitious young man who dreams of traveling the world, finds himself “trapped” in a small town that he has grown to detest. When his world falls apart and he is facing scandal and financial ruin, George cries out to God – and God answers his prayer in a most unusual way. It’s an inspiring story of love, hope, dreams and the true worth of each person.
There are 43 characters in this radio play, and you are in for a real treat as our special cast (possibly local friends and family of your) bring this beloved story alive.
If you have questions or need more information, contact us at 217-367-7777.
Show Details:
First broadcast, in it’s entirety, Friday, Dec 22, 7-9 pm.
Sat, Dec 23, 3-5 PM
Sun, Dec 24, 3-5 PM
Mon, Dec 25 through Fri, Dec 29, during “Mark & Friends”, heard at 7:32 AM, re-aired at 7:32 PM.  It’s a Wonderful Life will be broken into five parts with about 15 minutes each day, allowing me to share other background stores and updates.
