“Christmas Stories” from Focus on the Family – December 7th @ 8 PM

Join Jim Daly and John Fuller for Christmas Stories. You’ll hear from a wide variety of guests including Kathi Lipp who shares tips for getting organized for the holidays, and Phil Vischer on how Christmas became what it is today.

“A Christmas Carol” pt. 1 from Focus on the Family Radio Theatre – December 15th @ 8:04 PM

Focus on the Family brings to life the story of miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion—and given the opportunity to change not only his life but others too! It’s a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ’s birth, of His loving compassion!

“A Christmas Carol” pt. 2 from Focus on the Family Radio Theatre – December 16th @ 8:04 PM

Focus on the Family brings to life the story of miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion—and given the opportunity to change not only his life but others too! It’s a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ’s birth, of His loving compassion!

“Excerpts from Messiah” from Moody Radio – December 20th @ 8:04 PM

This 54-minute special consists of a variety of selections from the Messiah, an oratorio by George Frideric Handel, which had been an annual presentation & performance by the Moody Bible Institute’s Sacred Music Department through 2017. Messiah celebrates the awesome power of God & the gift of his Son, encompassing both the lyrical art of music & God’s word. This special 2022 release of Excerpts from Handel’s Messiah was produced from past Moody Bible Institute Music Department performances. Many favorite excerpts from The Messiah are included.

“Average Boy Christmas Special” from Focus on the Family – December 21st @ 3:32 PM (during Hilltop Kids Corner)

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! With gift-giving (& receiving!) & tree-hunting with his dad, Average Boy stays busy . . . & finds a way to get into trouble. A pesky raccoon, Bob’s dog & visiting cousins add to the zaniness. You’ll laugh at the holiday antics as you’re reminded of the true Reason for the season.

“Twas the Night Before Christmas” special message from Pastor Carter Conlon from Times Square Church in NYC – December 23rd @ 8:04 PM

The moment Jesus came to earth was, as in our present day, a dark time before the dawning of the greatest light ever revealed to humankind. The sudden appearance of Christ was (& still is) our best & only hope. My prayer is simple this season: “Lord Jesus, as it was then so do now. Burst the heavens with your Glory. Have mercy on this generation once again!”
