Grace Church TV Ministry...
Serving the Local Community for Over 30 Years
Grace Church TV Ministry broadcasts the Sunday morning services each week on local cable channels. The service can be seen in Oil City on Channel 22 Sunday mornings at 10:45AM with the previous week’s service shown at 8:30AM. It can be seen on Franklin Channel 6 Thursday evenings at 9.
They also make the services available for internet broadcast on our webpage www.graceoilcity.org.
This ministry is very important, especially to members of our community who are unable to get out of their homes and attend a church service. The phones ring continuously on mornings when, for some reason, we are unable to broadcast!
TV Ministry also provides DVDs of the Grace Sunday services to local nursing homes. The homes either set up a time for group viewing or have the DVD available for the residents to watch on their own.
This ministry has been on-going since the mid-1980's and some of the equipment still in use today is from that era. Unfortunately, at times, the age of the equipment causes problems. During the month of August TV Ministry was unable to provide DVDs to the nursing homes due to an equipment issue. And we were off the air for many weeks at the beginning of the summer. The equipment is in need of upgrading.
If you are led to aid this ministry and would like to help to upgrade the equipment, donations would be appreciated. Simply mark “TV Ministry” on your envelopes or send a check made out to Grace Church with the words “TV Ministry” in the memo line. You can also make memorial donations in memory of a loved one and designate it for TV Ministry.
Thank you for helping us to continue with this worthwhile ministry that reaches out to both members of the Grace Church family and to the local community.
