Unstoppable God!

Family Life’s Fall Sharathon

October 2-5, 2019

In the early 60s, a fledgling youth ministry was told that it could no longer use public schools for its Saturday night rallies.  It could have been the death knell, but our “Unstoppable God” intervened, and a youth center was built a few years later. 

In the late 70s, a radio station was applied for, but the application received significant opposition from an existing local station.  Legal entanglements lasted for five years, but our “Unstoppable God” opened the doors for a new Christian radio station in Bath, NY.

In the mid-80s, the vision of a radio network was birthed only to face serious resistance from a large radio group that threatened the potential for any expansion.  But our “Unstoppable God” miraculously removed the obstruction and a radio network came into existence. 

In the second decade of the 21st century, efforts to bring public utilities to property for a proposed new headquarters died causing architects to predict a $7,000,000 expenditure before any construction could begin.  But our “Unstoppable God” magnificently paved the way for a different and better site to be purchased. 

Family Life has experienced the incredible blessing of our “Unstoppable God” for 62 years!  When the financial situation looked bleak, He supplied.  When pressing staff needs materialized, He provided the right person to fit the position.  When the doors for expansion appeared to be totally closed, He opened them wide.  When a vision was presented, He made a way where there seemed to be no way.

“Unstoppable God” is the perfect theme for Family Life’s Fall Sharathon from October 2-5.  It is no secret that we live in perilous times where evil seems to be abounding throughout the world.  It’s evident that it’s not a matter of “if” but “when” we will see persecution come to Christians in America.  But now is not the time to give up and throw in the towel.  Instead, we need to hold on to the truth that we serve an “Unstoppable God” whose Word and work will persevere until He comes again! 

God continues to give a big vision to Family Life – a vision of impacting lives with the message of hope! 

  • You, along with hundreds of thousands of other listeners can find encouragement and hope every day with Family Life’s radio ministry.
  • You have the opportunity for spiritual instruction, help, and guidance with “The Healing Journey” as dozens of groups are promoted throughout New York and Pennsylvania.
  • You have a non-threatening environment to invite your friends or family members where the gospel is presented as Family Life’s Performing Arts Department creatively presents theatrical and musical events.
  • Your children or grandchildren have the opportunity of attending one of the Youth Theater Workshops. This past summer, these events reached more young people than ever before.
  • You can be involved in one of the over 250 wholesome and informative outreaches that Family Life is involved with every year throughout New York and Pennsylvania.
  • If you’re a senior or a single adult, you have programs through Family Life designed just for you.
  • Your local church is served by Family Life with seminars, training sessions, and an annual pastors’ conference.

With an ever-increasing demand for the ministry outreaches and resources that Family Life provides you, your family, and others, our financial needs continue to escalate.  And that’s why we need you.  Your financial investment in helping Family Life be an avenue of life change is critical. 

Can I ask you a simple question?  Do you see the value of having a ministry like Family Life in your area?  If your answer is “yes”, would you commit yourself to praying for God’s blessing upon Family Life?  And would you also be part of that blessing by becoming a Faith Partner in the upcoming Fall Sharathon? 

Your faith promise during the Sharathon will help the ministry reach its operational budget need of $2,000,000 for the next six months.  It will be used by God to provide you and others His hope, joy, and peace.  There are three different ways for you to become involved: return the enclosed response card with your faith promise, contribute online at www.fln.org/give, or call us at 800-927-9083 during the Sharathon. 

Our prayer is for your station to reach its individual goal.  You can follow your station’s progress online at www.fln.org.  We serve an “Unstoppable God”, and together we will experience Him doing great things through us!  

Yours in Christ,
