NIGHT OF HOPE - Oct 26th @ 7pm
It's in the headlines, it's sometimes in our own personal stories. That feeling that everything is falling apart and out of our control. But there's ALWAYS hope, and SOMEONE who is holding it all together.

If there's an area that needs a reminder there's hope, it's this area. Maybe you or someone you know needs that reminder. That's why we're inviting you to join us for WGTS 91.9's Night of Hope. It's a chance to reclaim your purpose, and discover the joy God has in store for your life.

This special one-night event will be led out by acclaimed worship leader Meredith Andrews (Open Up the Heavens, Deeper, and many others).
