The first 30 minutes are remastered episodes of the classic “This is the Life” series from the 70’s and 80’s.

It features many aspects of church worship; with an Invocation, confession and absolution, The Apostles Creed, the week’s Scripture readings, and a sermon. Hymns are sung by area church choirs.
