TV & Internet Ministry

Larry McHugh had taped and edited a worship service at First United Methodist Church since 2003. The services have been cablecast to the Independence and Neodesha communities Cableone Channel 72 at 6:00 pm on Thursday through Monday evening. Each service is edited for broadcast.

June 16, 2019 will be the sixteenth  year of this ministry, which is much appreciated by members who are homebound, in care facilities, or unable to attend Sunday services. In July of 2012 we began making the services available from the web site as a convenience and to reach more people. On May 5, 2013 the first wide-screen format was taped and began airing on Channel 10 (Now Channel 72) and also the Internet.

Your contributions to the general budget and the fund designated for TV ministry have made this possible. The cost for taping, airing and advertising is a little more than $8,400 a year. Thank you for supporting this ministry.

CD Ministry

A CD of each Sunday service is recorded and these are made available to church members who must miss Sunday worship, to those who are confined and cannot attend church, or to anyone who finds these CD’s enjoyable.

Please notify the church office if you wish to receive a CD recording Friday before the service. These may be picked up in the church office. Players are available to borrow.
