About

Mission:
De Brigj informs, entertains, and ministers to the Low German community through its programming. Listeners can stay current on news from Mennonite communities locally and abroad, traffic, weather, community events, and public service announcements. Listeners are also offered entertainment and companionship through music, humour, and ministry segments. De Brigj strives to uphold its mandate of integration and inclusion through information and education.

Programs

News & Information: Listeners receive updates on news, funeral announcements, and other information from Mennonite communities both local and abroad. Traffic, weather, school announcements and bus cancellations are aired regularly, and many community members advertise job openings, houses for rent, and items for sale through purchased advertising time. Waut Passiet is produced locally and one of our more popular general interest programs.

Christian Ministry: Gospel music, devotions, and teachings make up a significant part of our programming. We feature well-known Mennonite talent as well as respected local and syndicated preachers and teachers. According to surveys, one of our most listened-to segments is the daily morning and evening Scripture reading.

Family & Life Programming: Individuals, parents, and families receive information and support from a Christian perspective on issues such as raising a family, depression, abuse, etc. Popular segments include Frues met Hopnung which is translated from Marli Spieker’s Women of Hope, Tues em Heim hosted by Susie Peters and Nellie Neufeld, and Encuentro with Ernesto Pinto.

Song Dedications & Music by Request: Birthday and anniversary dedications can be requested every day, and listeners can also call in to request and dedicate any song for any reason during a very popular all-request hour each Wednesday evening.

Children’s Programming: Children can tune in every day at 5:15 pm for special children’s programming. Plautdietsche Kjinjastund is locally produced by MCS staff and volunteers, and Check It In - Check It Out is produced by Julie Berry and sponsored by the Aylmer Library. Other programming includes Keys for Kids,which airs daily.

Youth Ministry: The youth can tune in at 6:30 pm every day to hear relative programming geared towards their age group! Locally produced programming includes Youth Matters. Ekj Ran, which is produced by Eduard Giesbrecht in Bolivia, is also featured.

Event Announcements: Our churches often advertise fundraisers, charitable events, and programs. Community partners such as the Southwestern Public Health Unit, Aylmer Police, School Boards, and the library also use our station to provide the Low German community with a variety of information.

Settlement Stories Quilt Trail: Stories promoting the Low German people’s history and contributions in our community to the broader public are to be developed. These will relate to the quilts and stories of the Settlement Stories Quilt Trail, an MCS project that showcases the unique community history of the east region of Elgin County.

How have your 2022 Challenge goals been going?

Here is an update from De Brigj Radio Host Nellie Neufeld on her 2022 Challenge!

The year 2022 is now half over and I wish I could say that my new year plans are still going strong. ☹ My plans were - and still are - to walk at least 20 mins, 5 days a week and slowly increase it with the goal in mind to get to 5 km-long walks. Also, to memorize a scripture verse every week. Well, I am the perfect example that things don’t always go as you have planned.

I tell you, the walking part has been hard to do because I have so many good excuses not to walk. For example: In the winter it is too cold, too much snow, and too icy. In the summer it is too hot, too humid, and of course too busy. I hope that some of you can relate and that it is not just me. It is true, I did have some setbacks and I am still trying to push through. For me to succeed in this challenge is to start again, again, and again. And that is what I have been doing and will continue to do. Giving up on this is not an option for me.

Memorizing a bible verse a week has been challenging as well. So, I decided that I would memorize one verse every two weeks, and then I changed it to one verse a month. It sounds sad, right? Then, I told myself as long as I did one a month I would still have memorized 12 more verses than the year before. I liked that! So, back to memorizing. Some verses are harder to memorize than others so, I concentrated on memorizing the easier ones and then the more meaningful ones and now I am back on track with memorizing one verse a week and that totally helps me rejoice.

Psalm 103:1 Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise His Holy Name.

I guess what I am trying to say is that if you make up your mind to do something that is good for you and your family, don’t give up on it. If you fail at first just get back up and start over. Have a little grace for yourself.
