 WLGS 2021 Update 

In October of 2020 we put our new automation computer in service. Although we are still learning how to use the new automation system, we know that it will help us improve our broadcast in several ways. So, look forward to a few programing changes in 2021.  

Additionally, in December of 2020, we were granted another 8-year license extension by the FCC. What a blessing it is for us to begin year number 16 as we look forward to what God will continue to do through our radio ministry!   

If you would like to help in accomplishing these goals, please consider supporting our ministry through a one-time gift or through monthly or semimonthly donations. Please keep these projects in your prayers and if you are able to help support the wonderful radio ministry of WLGS, you can send a gift of any size to WLGS PO Box 646, Lake Villa, IL, 60046, go to the donation link on this Facebook page, or give online at:

As you might imagine, running a radio station is a large endeavor for a small church. Therefore, we are asking that you might consider WLGS in your missionary support. We believe that our current listeners and friends are more than adequate to completely fund our radio ministry. If you are able to support WLGS with a one time or monthly gift, you can send your donation to: WLGS, P.O. Box 646, Lake Villa, IL 60046. You can also donate through our church’s webpage at Don’t forget to mention WLGS in the memo. As always, your support of our ministry, whether through your prayers, a financial gift, or both, is greatly appreciated.
