Easter

Carter Conlon 
New for 2024

Welcome and thank you for joining us for Carter Conlon’s 2024 Easter special Jesus, My Heart, My Mind, My Life. Colossian 1:27 tells us that Christ in us is the hope of glory. The question is: Who’s glory? God’s, mine, others, or maybe something for all? Carter talks about this glory in the light of the risen Christ, in us, in our time.

National Day of Prayer

What If I Am The Mountain (24:55)

Carter Conlon 
New for 2023

Thank you for joining us for Carter Conlon’s 2023 National Day of Prayer Special: What If I Am The Mountain

In this special, Carter examines the littleness of our own heart, and how it can sometimes be the mountain that wants to swallow us; how our own heart can keep us from believing that we really can amount to something that can bring glory to God.

He reminds us that God can STILL use your life in a spectacular and dramatic way!

“I encourage you to listen to this program, and believe it will bring a great deal of understanding to your life in this particular season”

This is a timely message and wonderful reminder, be sure to listen and share with a friend!

Patriot Day (9/11)

“Beyond 9/11: The Impact of Prayer” (28:00)
Carter Conlon
Original Release Date: Patriot Day 2014

In 2001, every eye was focused on Manhattan–and in the midst of the 9/11 tragedy, Times Square Church was at the ready, uniquely prepared to minister in the crisis.  Because they had prayed.  It’s a powerful and deeply moving remembrance of 9/11 … with the strongest of biblical foundations as the platform for impacting our culture then … and now.

Thanksgiving

An Old Reason For A New Thankfulness

Carter Conlon | Times Square Church
24:55 Special

Let’s be real, it can be difficult to give thanks when you’re afraid.  Too often people looking to pacify their fears and frustrations turn to substance abuse or forms of religion that have no power to set the captive free.  Join Carter as he takes us back into Egypt in the book of Exodus chapter 12, during a time where the judgment of God had fallen on a nation, but also a promise that He would take them out.

In the midst of that particular time and the perilous times we live in today, how can we keep a thankful and grateful heart?  In this Thanksgiving special, Carter encourages us to shift our focus from the problem to the victory of Christ.  Reminding us of the goodness of God and how He continues to be faithful.  Join with us and discover an old reason for a new thankfulness.

The Legend of Squanto

A Radio Theatre Classic
Radio Theatre | Focus on the Family
2 hr. special with time for local spot avails

This audio drama brings to light the story of one of America’s early legends: “Squanto.”  History remembers Tisquantum as the Native American who taught early settlers to fish and farm.  He’s even credited with the first Thanksgiving.  But few hear the story of the condemnation that dragged him outside America to a life in chains and what he discovered after his exile.  It’s an inspiring true story of this little-known early American that triumphed over injustice and changed what would become the United States.

CLASSIC CHRISTMAS SPECIALS

A Christmas Carol

Originally Released 2008
Radio Theatre | Focus on the Family
3-part special for 2-hour block/1 hr. 39 min.

Charles Dickens was just 12 years old when he saw firsthand the devastating effects of child labor.  He never forgot those images.  In 1843 he wrote a pamphlet titled: “An Appeal to the People of England, on Behalf of the Poor Man’s Child.”  It became the story of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”  Focus on the Family brings to life the story of miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion—and given the opportunity to change not only his life but others too!  It’s a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ’s birth, of His loving compassion!
