Northwestern Media’s Life 101.9 (Waterloo/Cedar Rapids, IA) created an opportunity for listeners to connect and build community during a season of isolation with the Life 101.9 Life Group. The Life 101.9 Life Group featured a daily devotional written by a member of the Life 101.9 team. Listeners could choose to read the emailed devotional or listen to the podcast version. A closed Facebook group was an important piece of the initiative as well, giving listeners the opportunity to share and encourage others in a safe environment. Over the four week series, over 300 listeners participated in the Life 101.9 Life Group!
Station Manager Matt Deane said “We are humbled and amazed to see the work that God has done through the Life 101.9 Life Group. When we started the planning process, COVID-19 was not even on our radar. To know that he was going before us to provide an opportunity for Life 101.9 listeners to experience community in a time of social isolation is amazing.”
