Bread of Life

In 1984, the station's management decided to invite local evangelical pastors to participate in a new radio program WIHS would produce called Bread of Life. Each pastor would prepare seven, five-minute devotional messages for the program. Each message would air on WIHS over the course of a week.

Bread of Life continues today with a strong contingent of Bible believing pastors and church leaders from around the WIHS listening area who provide timely, inspiring and challenging devotional messages. Bread of Life airs three times a day, seven days a week at these times:

Weekdays: 12:25PM, 5:25PM & 11:25PM
Saturdays:  2:06AM, 12:10PM & 5:25PM
Sundays:    1:05AM, 7:15AM & 3:55PM

On-Demand Playback – You may also listen to the most recent editions of the Bread of Life program at your convenience by clicking any of the red "play" buttons below.

Listening to Bread of Life, or any other program on WIHS, should not be considered a substitute for going to church. If you are looking for a church to attend, please visit the Local Churches Page on the WIHS Web Site for a sampling of area churches. The list is not all-inclusive, but provides a starting place as you ask God to help you to find a church home.

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching"
(Hebrews 10:25)
