12-13-11 Exclusive Holiday Programming from Hope Channel
Christmas specials, new Christmas music, church services, children's programs and more
Hope Channel has expanded its traditional Christmas programming line-up with specials produced by the North American Division. In addition, General Conference president Ted N.C. Wilson will share inspirational thoughts for the church in his annual Christmas message.
Each week in December will offer different top-quality, Christ-centered programming for the whole family.
New this year is God's Christmas Cards. What would God say this year if He sent a Christmas card to Casey Anthony or Tiger Woods? What would He say to Bernie Madoff, John Edwards, or Jaycee Dugard? What would He say to President Obama? What would He say to you?
You’ll find the answer as the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church presents a series of seven different programs on Hope Channel titled God’s Christmas Cards. Dan Jackson, president of the North American Division will present two of the seven programs. The other five programs will be hosted by the five speaker/directors of the division’s media ministries—John Bradshaw of It Is Written, Carlton Byrd of Breath of Life, Frank Gonzalez of La Voz de la Esperanza, Fred Kinsey of Voice of Prophecy, and Mike Tucker of Faith for Today. Watch for God’s Christmas Cards exclusively on Hope Channel each evening at 7:00 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET from December 17 to 23. A schedule of rebroadcast times is available at www.HopeTV.org.
Pastor Ted Wilson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, presents his annual inspirational Christmas message. Revival in Mission airs December 23 at 5:00 p.m. and December 24 at 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
