See You at the Festivals!

It's festival time! Join us this weekend at the Pekin Marigold Festival, September 9 & 10! The parade steps off this Saturday at 10:00am (watch out for flying soft baseballs!) and later we'll be at the Community Spotlight from Noon – 6:00pm Saturday and Sunday 9:00am – 5:00pm with free water, candy, and other great giveaways.

Then we head east next week to the Morton Pumpkin Festival, September 13–16 with the theme "Farmin' Pumpkins"! Our booth will be at the Local Spotlight near the Family Fun Patch.  Stop by and see us next to the carnival rides Wednesday-Thursday from 4:00 – 8:00pm, and Friday-Saturday from Noon – 8:00pm, and of course the Morton parade stepping off at 10:30am on Saturday.

If you're interested in being a WBNH Parade Pal and walking in the Pekin and/or Morton parades, please email Carla at and let us know!

WBNH Celebrates 35 years this Fall!

Yes, we celebrate 35 years of proclaiming the Good News this year!  Back in 1988, WBNH went on the air and we’ve been blessed to serve Central Illinois for three and a half decades by the grace of God and generous supporters like you!  To celebrate, we invite you to a FREE concert featuring Laura Story on Friday, October 13th at Northfield Christian Fellowship in Tremont. 

We’ll begin the evening with a coffee and dessert bar at 6:15, followed by the concert at 7:30.  Thanks to our great sponsors, we're able to make this complimentary for all who attend, however tickets are required.  Go here to reserve yours!  And we’ll see you at the celebration October 13th!

OCC Collection Week is November 13th

Each year Operation Christmas Child provides thousands of carefully prepared shoebox gifts for needy children overseas that would otherwise never know about the love of Jesus Christ.  And this year OCC is celebrating 50 million children being discipled! By taking part in this great ministry you're helping to deliver God’s love to a child you probably will never meet.  The blessings are endless!  WBNH will once again be a drop-off location for OCC during Collection Week November 13th – 20th.  Get information about Operation Christmas Child and become part of those blessing others this year.  Go here to get started!


In His Goodness,

Jim, Keith, Daniel, and Carla
