Local Church Expands Radio Ministry

The Union Church of LaHarpe has expanded their radio ministry once again. The church broadcast, "God's Truth for Daily Living" is now being heard on KMDY radio station out of Carthage. The Sunday broadcast is being aired at 7:00 a.m. A new 15 minute weekday version of the broadcast airs daily at 6:00 p.m. KMDY is an affiliate of the Moody Broadcasting Network. KMDY has its offices in Carthage and has a tower in Hamilton (90.9 FM) and in Macomb (90.5 FM). A new tower will be erected in Macomb later this summer which will boost the signal even more.

The Union Church began "God's Truth for Daily Living" in 1997 on KBUR in Burlington (1490 AM) with a 6:30 a.m. broadcast on Sunday mornings. This broadcast came about due to the encouragement of the late Lyman Fort. In 1999 the church added a second broadcast on WCAZ in Carthage (990 AM) due to the generous support of one of the church members. The Carthage broadcast airs Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

In the fall of 2002 the ministry expanded when the new Christian Station in Burlington, KAYP (89.9 FM) encouraged the church to be part of its radio lineup. That broadcast airs at 8:00 a.m. In 2006 the church added a 15 minute version of the broadcast that airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:00 a.m. on KAYP. The Broadcasts all continue on these four area stations.

The Sunday broadcasts are recordings of the Sunday message delivered by either Bruce or Rick Goettsche. All the Sunday broadcasts are broadcasts of the same message and are usually on a 2-3 month delay . These sermons are edited by Dave Clover. The fifteen minute broadcasts are edited by Pastor Bruce Goettsche and is a Sunday sermon cut in half. At present the Monday, Wednesday and Friday broadcasts on KAYP are different from the daily broadcasts on KMDY.

The church hears from and is supported by many people who listen to God's Truth for Daily Living from Ottumwa, Mt. Pleasant, Quincy, Macomb and other locations all around LaHarpe. The KAYP broadcasts can also be heard live via the web-streaming on the website. The church website at also provides the opportunity to listen to the Sunday and weekday broadcasts on demand and includes an extensive archive..
