Each year as we celebrate Easter, we mark another year of broadcasting.
We find our country, our nation, our churches, and our communities, in a time very different from any of our past anniversaries. While we realize that we need to exercise extreme precautions, about how and when we gather. We may well discover that we need each other now more than ever. We need to stay in touch with each other, but maybe without touching each other. We need to look out for each other, by calling or reaching out on social media.
Through WTPB LP, we can continue to find the joy and reassurance of having a friend in our home or wherever we might find ourselves. 

You are invited to listen to “uplifting” music, including Worship from Third Pres. on Sundays and Wednesday at 10:15 AM;  Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 9 AM; The weekly sermon from Westminster Presbyterian at 1 PM on Sunday and Wednesday; and also on Sundays and Wednesdays: Wonderful Words of Life by the Salvation Army at 11:40 AM; Day 1 (weekly sermons) at noon, Sing for Joy at 12:30 PM, and the Lutheran Hour at 1:30 PM.
