Beginning in October, 2018 the first half of the Main Street Living hour, which has been the “Kid's Crossing” program, will be changed to re-mastered episodes of the "This is the Life" program which was very popular in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. We hope you will enjoy seeing some major stars as they were just beginning their careers. This will run for about two years.
The second half of the program features an area pastor leading an abbreviated worship service with the confession, absolution, scripture lessons, hymns, creed and sermon.

You may ask: “Why is it called Operation Barnabas?” Barnabas was Paul’s companion, who helped him in his missionary journey. His name means “son of encouragement.” We hope to encourage our military and their families with the Gospel in action! Our military has answered our nation’s call to protect and defend us. In every time and place they have stood the watch, far from their families.
