"Those who trust in the Lord shall be like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever" (Psalm 125:1).
85th Anniversary of the Wausau Lutheran Hour
On Easter Sunday, March 28, 1937, two months after Wausau’s first radio station, WSAU, went on the air (Jan. 31), Zion broadcast its first service over the radio airwaves from the old church at 5th and Scott Streets.
Through the efforts of Zion’s Pastor Paul Roehrs and WSAU’s Chief Engineer, Roland Richardt (a member of Zion), the Wausau Lutheran Hour began. The broadcast has flourished over the years through the support of members of Zion, and others from the Wausau area, who sponsored broadcasts in memory of departed loved ones, birthdays, or anniversaries. This broadcast has been a blessing to thousands of homebound persons in Central Wisconsin, has reached ears around the world thanks to the Internet, and has served as an irreplaceable asset to our worship during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Listen to our Sunday 9:00 am Worship Service by tuning into WSAU 550 AM, 99.9 FM and 95.1 FM. You can also listen live on WSAU and clicking on Listen Live.
