Support Augustana’s Christmas Eve radio broadcast
Augustana Lutheran Church has a long history of broadcasting the gospel on Denver’s airwaves. Virtually as long as Denver has had radio stations, Augustana has had a radio ministry of one type or another. Weekly broadcasts of services and sermons began in the 1950s and continued until 1998. The broadcast of Augustana’s Christmas Eve service has continued for over 50 consecutive years.
The planned, one-hour broadcast over radio KOA reaches most of the western United States. Each year Augustana receives dozens of reports, acknowledgements, and thank-you notes from members and strangers who hear the broadcast at home and in the car throughout the country.
Again this year, Augustana will air a one-hour, Christmas Eve broadcast at 10 p.m. over radio station KOA. The broadcast and production costs run around $1,500. In the past the Augustana Foundation has helped fund this outreach ministry. Recently, the congregation has reached out to support this important ministry, and now is your opportunity to continue to do so. If you’d like to contribute toward this broadcast, please make a check payable to Augustana Lutheran Church and note “KOA Christmas Broadcast.” You can make your gift in honor or memory of a loved one, and the acknowledgement will be included in the Christmas bulletins. Thank you!
