Slavic and Linwood Church Services Go Live on the Web
The Spokane Slavic Church has experience with international broadcasting. For more than a year, the sermons from Volodymyr Nesteruk, pastor, have been broadcast on the Hope Channel Europe (HCE) and can be seen as far away as his native Ukraine. Now the Open Door Russian language television ministry can be seen live through a stream on the Web.
Since June 2005 the Slavic community in Spokane has been tuning into the Adventist-operated KHBA channel 39 to hear the only Russian religious television program available in a community with a sizable population. In May 2007 HCE began airing the broadcast as well. In September 2007 Nesteruk traveled to the Ukraine and recorded 30 half-hour installments of an evangelistic series in the Ukrainian language, which will also soon be aired on HCE.
You can find the live stream on Sabbath afternoons at 2 p.m. at www.openbookcenter.com. If you would like to tune in to the English language service at the Linwood Church, where Nesteruk serves along with Kevin Wilfley, senior pastor, you can find this Sabbath mornings at www.linwoodsda.org.
