■ CHANCE TO START FULL-POWER ADVENTIST RADIO STATIONS — Please notify all of your pastors and members now, before it’s too late! Make sure that all have heard of the short and rare window of time, October 12-19, that the FCC is opening for new noncommercial stations to apply for a radio frequency. Most of the desirable frequencies are expected to be taken in this filing window.
Technical and legal help are easily available to help with applying for and starting a radio station. The estimated cost for preparing and filing an application is US$4,000- $6,000.
Contact: LifeTalk at 800-775-4673 / email email@example.com; or Don Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org / 703-642-2344 for assistance and information. Both are on Eastern time. More information is posted in the August 17 Friday FAX at www.nadadventist.org/article.php?id=245.
■ HEARTQUEST IS UPLINKING ONLY ONE WORSHIP SERVICE which will be October 27 at 11:00 am CT, NOT November 3, as previously stated on the website.
■ "OUT OF THIN AIR" 2 DVD SETS CAN BE PRE-ORDERED for US$14.95/set of all four programs, which is US$5.00 off the retail price. (English and Spanish audio available). The DVDs include a bonus Question & Answer feature (in English only) with Pastor Boonstra and Dr. Tim Standish. They will ship in November.
■ MISSION SPOTLIGHT WILL BE ENDING OPERATIONS at the end of 2007. The DVDs from Adventist Mission are created to inform and help members become acquainted with missions and people and are sent to churches free, every quarter. They focus on the 13th Sabbath offering division and include stories in a variety of lengths from other areas of the world as well, to promote general mission offerings. The 13th Sabbath Offering videos can be used near the end of the quarter and others can be used anytime. There's a story on every DVD specifically for children. The DVDs can be shown in Sabbath schools, prayer meetings, youth programs and more. Podcasts or RSS feeds are available even if you can't find the DVD.
