     WPRZ is pleased to announce that “Turning Point” with David Jeremiah now airs Monday through Friday afternoons at 12 Noon!  This new time is in addition to their 12:30 AM and 5:30 AM airings.  We hope you’ll spend a good half hour at lunchtime listening to this great in depth Bible Study! 
     From June 2nd through July 3rd, Dr. Jeremiah will be teaching on the “Signs of the Second Coming”!  We encourage everyone to listen to what we know will be a fascinating study and we’ll find out exactly what the Bible has to say about the end times.  Some of the topics include “What Jesus Said About His Return”, “The Sheep and the Goats”, and “Tribulation Preachers”.  We encourage you to order this Bible Study so you can make notes and follow along with Dr. Jeremiah.  And, please, when you contact “Turning Point” or any of the great Bible Teaching Programs you hear on the station, please be sure to tell them you are listening on WPRZ-FM!!!

The biggest news in Praise Communication’s 28-year history occurred when WPRZ 88.1 FM went on the air May 28th at 12:30 PM right before Memorial Day Weekend!  It took 11 years to get a construction permit from the FCC to build the station!  It was an incredible journey of faith as Praise sold its only radio station, WPRZ 1250 AM, to grow the ministry and continue waiting on the FCC to approve the 10,000 watt FM construction permit.  There were 25 other competing applications in 19 other communities all hoping for the frequency at 88.1.  We are so blessed and humbled to be chosen for the permit… and blessed we were able to get the station on the air!
