Dear Friend of KHCS, Easter is upon us!
This is the most important of Christian Holidays! As the Apostle Paul
wrote in 1st Corinthians 15:14, “And if Christ has not been raised, our
preaching is useless and so is your faith.” Christ did raise and those
who put their trust in Him as Savior know they will have eternal life
with him forever. This is the message KHCS has for the Coachella
KHCS has been putting on Christian programming that has been uplifting
with information and inspiration that is meant to glorify God. There
are hundreds of stations around the country that are also doing this.
Many Christian music artists are constantly coming on the scene with new
music appealing to a broader group of people.
Tony Anderson, a Staff Writer for the
Daily News, wrote an article that appeared in one of the newspapers I
receive that shows Hollywood executives finally realize the public wants
more uplifting and spiritual fare. In the three years since Mel Gibson
released “The Passion of the Christ,” hundreds of films with
Judeo-Christian, spiritual and family-friendly themes have hit the
screen – from “The Nativity Story” to “Amazing Grace.”
Anderson goes on to say that last year
alone, nearly 50 films featured positive Judeo-Christian content that
producers hoped would appeal to the estimated 110 million Americans who
attend church every week, according to Movieguide.
“People are gravitating to anything
that gives them hope, inspiration, motivation or a sense of light,” said
Mark Clayman, executive producer of “The Pursuit of Happyness.”
To meet the demand, 20th Century Fox
recently launched Fox Faith Movies, which plans to release a dozen
faith-based films a year. Last fall, the Walt Disney Company also
announced it would focus more on family-oriented and faith-based movies.
One producer stated, “this is a
diverse nation, and for the past decades, Christians have shunned
Hollywood. All we are saying is: ‘Why shun Hollywood? Let’s go to
Hollywood and take a seat at the table.’” Another producer said, he
thinks the public is welcoming Hollywood’s attention to more uplifting
and inspirational movies and TV shows.
I recently received a list of
Christians who have made great strides in the media and entertainment
business. They are doing well because people want the kind of
entertainment that is uplifting and spiritual.
For years Christians have had to put
up with the violence, sex and terrible language because the Hollywood
crowd thought that was what people wanted and it would bring in the big
bucks. Now they are finding bigger bucks come from people with morality
and particularly the Christian community. Christians should support
these people as they try and put an influence on our society that can
turn the tide of immorality to good.
Here at KHCS we are constantly trying
to give our listeners programs and information that honors God and
edifies the Christian community. We have added some new music during
the last couple of month including some Southern Gospel music that we
have received several positive comments about. This next month we will
be adding a couple more short inspirational features including a new one
from Chuck Swindoll. Your comments about our programming are always
If you find KHCS to be a blessing to
you and you have not been a supporter recently, I would encourage you to
pray about becoming a regular monthly supporter of this ministry. KHCS
is a non-profit ministry that is only for the Coachella Valley and we
cannot operate if God’s people do not support it. Please pray about
becoming a ministry partner. May this Easter Season will be a blessing
to each of you as we celebrate the glorious resurrection of our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ.
In His joy,
