To Our  Many Volunteers

Continued thanks for the churches and individuals whose liberality makes this a thriving outreach.  Not to be overlooked is a large handful of Christian brothers and sisters who unselfishly give of their time and know-how. 

 2017 – The Year in Retrospect

      Good Radio News is a media ministry overseen by the Ariton, Alabama Church of Christ and supported by  two dozen sister congregations plus numerous individuals. At the heart of this effort is the  Power & the Glory broadcast, now in our 18th year.  In 2017, we heard from listeners in about a hundred different cities and towns across the U.S.

     In 2017, we dispersed on request these materials to listeners: 648 CDs, 77 radio sermon scripts, 13 Searching for Truth DVDs, and 30 miscellaneous articles on Bible subjects.  There were 35 requests  for subscriptions to the House to House magazine and 21 listeners began Bible correspondence courses. We have also honored over 30 prayer requests.

     Each month, we establish a long-distance friendship with listeners throughout the USA and abroad.  We know of some whose pathway to Christ began with the Power & the Glory program; and, no doubt there are many more!

     Thanks for browsing this site, and thanks for the prayers and contributions of many. We pray that 2018 will be a blessed and banner year for you.

     For the furtherance of the Gospel, I’m George Merritt.
