2nd Sunday Brunch
Brunch will be served this Sunday
from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
in the Fellowship Hall
This brunch is sponsored by Salem’s Missions Ministry Team and all proceeds from the brunch will go directly to KICY Radio.
KICY broadcasts from Nome, Alaska and is owned by Arctic Broadcasting Association, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit, affiliated corporation of the Evangelical Covenant Church. KICY serves native Alaskan villages throughout Western Alaska and the Russian Far East. They have an immediate need to replace two of their broadcast towers. Original estimates come to $240,000 for the entire project. This includes the solid steel towers, shipping, and installation.
Most of KICY’s annual operating budget comes from churches and individual donations. The staff is comprised of full-time and part-time volunteers.
Since KICY first signed-on Easter Sunday, April 17 of 1960, it has continued to broadcast the good news of Jesus Christ throughout Western Alaska and the Russian Far East. They have increased our power to 50,000 watts, 24 hours a day which allows KICY AM 850 the opportunity to send the Gospel into some places where other forms of media are not readily available. They operate two distinct radio stations, KICY AM-850 & ICY 100.3 FM. While the AM station broadcasts at 50,000 watts and can be heard throughout the entire region, the FM station is programmed for and serves the City of Nome and surrounding communities.
