Close to 1,000 WGTS/Wash DC (91.9) listeners came out for a night of singing and dancing with Blanca during the WGTS Listener Appreciation Concert. WGTS and Cedarbrook Community Church in Clarksburg, Md., presented the concert as a gift to the community. For admission, listeners needed to display a WGTS bumper sticker on their cars. For listeners without one, station volunteers were on hand to give them one at the entrance to the parking lot.

“I loved everything about the night – the dancing, the enthusiasm of the crowd, and the number of families that could attend,” said WGTS midday show host Becky Alignay. “I heard about one family with five kids who’d never been to a concert before, but they could enjoy this one because it was free. And that’s why we do this.”

“In a perfect world, I wish all of our shows could be free,” said WGTS morning show host and director of marketing Jerry Woods. “I’m really grateful to Curb Word Entertainment and Blanca for catching the vision of doing a concert accessible to anyone in the Washington, D.C., area who wanted to attend.”

Stu Epperson Jr. of Truth Network/Winston-Salem has recently launched “Share the Truth Now,” an evangelistic campaign to reach the lost for Christ. “Share the Truth Now” seeks to make the practice of sharing your faith easy and accessible for everyone. At its core, the initiative encourages individuals to share the Gospel message with those they encounter in their daily lives.

“At the heart of ‘Share the Truth Now’ is the idea that the Gospel is for everyone, regardless of their background or beliefs. Our goal is to share the truth, the truth of the Gospel, with as many people as possible,” said Epperson. “People need to know that there is hope, and that hope is found in Jesus.”

To learn more about “Share the Truth Now” and to receive your first set of free cards, visit sharethetruthnow.com.
