Faith & Family

Faith & Family is a program that lets family’s keep their Lutheran faith first as we praise God for the gift He has given us in our children, parents, grandparents, and even the in-laws!  Every day, Faith & Family will have an expert on the show to discuss life issues such as money management,  dealing with divorce, adoption, how to raise children to lead a God-centered life in a very non-Christian world, and more.  And the best part of all, you can be part of the show by calling in with your questions and comments for our expert!

While Faith & Family at KFUO is well aware of the fast-paced world of today, we want to keep the focus of raising our family and yours on what’s really important—making Christ known for generations to come!

Let's Talk Feb '17

This program is for lay people with no special religious education who, while they believe, still have questions and seek guidance. They need answers in language they can understand. Imagine sitting on your front porch and having a casual discussion with your pastor. The conversation might be explaining parts of doctrine, like the nature of original sin, or it might be more personal, such as coping with a gay child. Each program features a guest pastor and is hosted by Kip Allen, himself a layman with many of the same questions.

Friday @ 2:00 p.m. Central Time
