Please be in prayer with us for WPRZ’s upcoming Fall Sharathon.  This is a time set aside to ask God for what we need to operate WPRZ as he wants it to be.  We will be asking for more monthly support in the way of gifts from individuals and families, Church Missions Support, and Business Sponsorships.  We do this in order to cover the monthly expenses it takes to keep WPRZ on the air.  We are hoping for $6,000.00 a month in additional support.  Plus, we need to eliminate the remainder of the deficit which is $11,000.00. As monthly support increases, there will no longer be a deficit!
WPRZ also is in need of some equipment to help us do our jobs better.  We need to get our production room operational and to do that we need another Broadcast Computer which will cost $5,000.00.  We are also hoping for enough gifts to purchase some additional equipment so we can record calls from the phone and also record some local programs we want to get started. We are hoping for $10,000.00 for equipment and other miscellaneous needs at the station.
We are still in awe of God’s provision as we recently saw Him open the floodgates and pour out a blessing on WPRZ.  As listeners joined us in a special Call to Prayer for WPRZ, He moved in a powerful way on many hearts.  They listened and responded and in eight days, July 29th through August 5th, God’s people gave $29,000.00 towards eliminating a nagging $40,000.00 deficit.  We hope you were a part of that very special time!!!!
Please pray and ask God what He would have you do to help WPRZ continue Shining the Light of God’s Word into our local communities and around the world over wprz.org.  Then do whatever He puts on your heart to do!  We’ve enclosed a special pledge card you can send in to let us know what you plan to do.  Thank you so much for being a part of God’s work over WPRZ 88.1 FM!!!!

WPRZ joins with others all across the land in calling for a special day of prayer for our great country!  Listen throughout the day for special prayers and music as we remember September 11 and pray together for the heart and soul of America.  2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  It’s clear that America is turning away from God and may be facing judgment!  But there is still hope!  2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us what God instructs us...His people...to do about it!  Let’s all set this day aside for personal reflection and prayer for our great country!  God is waiting to hear from His people!!!  And let’s keep on remembering to pray for America every day!!

WPRZ has partnered with Resurrection Pictures, a non-profit organization, to bring this movie to Culpeper!  The movie is a faith-based, family, action/adventure film that will thrill children and tweens, six through fourteen, their parents and grandparents.  In this movie, Alex Kendrick of “Courageous” and “Fireproof”, plays Daniel Anderson who visits a foster home to drop off some donations when he is quickly roped into telling the kids a story.  The story he tells transitions into a heart-racing adventure.  Alex Kendrick says it’s a wholesome movie that will take you back to a more innocent time but will keep you on the edge of your seat. The movie is endorsed by some great organizations including Youth for Christ and Awana.  And what is so great about this partnership between Resurrection Pictures and WPRZ is that WPRZ will receive a portion of the ticket sales!  The movie will open April 19th and is scheduled for one week.  However, if response is good, it will stay for another week! 
Please help us get the word out about this movie and its many benefits!  Churches can get a free curriculum series for Sunday school, mid-week studies or for families to talk about the positive themes of the movie.  It’s a chance for parents and grandparents to take their family to a movie that provides opportunities for conversations about God and the gospel on the way home or over dinner!  Please… let’s support this faith-based film!  There are way too many anti-Christian films out there.  As the body of Christ let’s do our best to fill up the theatre every day and night!  We have free posters, brochures, and bookmarks to place in your church or your business!  To get some, just call and we’ll mail them to you or you can come and pick them up.  Please help us get the word out!  This is a great opportunity and a win win win for everyone!!!   Find out more at www.thelostmedallion.com.

WPRZ 88.1 FM has been on the air now for almost three years!  It’s been an incredible journey that began 15 years ago!!!  God has brought us so far and has placed us in the center of our hometown of Culpeper where we are broadcasting the Good News not only locally but around the world over wprz.org!  To do that takes a lot of finances! We are asking God’s people to help financially more than ever so WPRZ’s expenses can be fully covered so we can move forward with what God has put on our hearts to do!!  First and foremost, we need to get some critical expenses covered that are critical to enable us to broadcast at all!  Then, we are hoping for funds to hire more staff and obtain some needed equipment!  We are hoping and praying that God will provide all the funds needed to make this possible!  We would request your prayers for this Sharathon!  What happens during this Sharathon will be major event in our history!  WPRZ needs more listeners and friends to give the best gifts they can give during this critical time!  We’re turning our music room into a dedicated Prayer Room for this event so if you would like to come in and help keep the prayers going up, then please do so!  We are asking everyone to please pray as you listen. Our ultimate goal is $30,000.00 a month or $360,000.00 a year. During Sharathon, we simply must reach $20,000.00 a month or $240,000.00 for the year, through March 2014. 
Enclosed with this Highlights is a Pre-Sharathon Response and Pledge Form!  Please pray and if you are already one of our regular partners, thank you so much!  If not, then please pray about what you can do to help!  We are gathering together a group of people who are committed to keeping WPRZ 88.1 FM in prayer, well funded, and on the air shining the light of God’s Word 24/7 locally and around the world. We hope you will join with us!!

Join us as we celebrate what God has done and is doing at WPRZ!! It’s time to raise the bar and reach upwards for an increase in funding that will allow us to continue carrying out the mission God has given to us to do over WPRZ-FM!!  We are gathering together a group of men and women, businesses and churches, who will be used of God to provide adequate finances for WPRZ-FM to operate in our local community!  We have come a long way...but we still have a long way to go to receive adequate funding to cover all the necessary expenses, not including needed funds, to move forward serving our listeners even better!  Please pray now about what God might have you do.  We’ll be sending out more information in the mail and will be earnestly and prayerfully waiting for your response.  Will you be one of God’s people who will give and be committed to seeing WPRZ-FM continue as a locally owned and operated community-oriented local radio station?  We can do this if we all pull together and if everyone gives out of the riches God has given them!  Please be in prayer about this and be watching for your Response Card!  May God bless everyone who helps us in a very special way!
