The Compass has a generous friend who is willing to add to a new donor’s gifts with a $50 donation.  That means if you give a gift of any amount as a first-time donor to WCRH your gift will have an additional $50 added to it.  Monthly givers will also have the additional $50 added along with their pledge.  If you have never given a gift to support The Compass, we need to hear from you today!  Let’s meet the challenge!

This year’s goal is $550,000.

WCRH, The Compass at 90.5 FM, is a listener-supported Christian radio station serving Hagerstown, Frederick (91.1), Cumberland MD (103.5) and Newville, PA (102.5), Chambersburg, Waynesboro, Shippensburg, PA, Martinsburg, WV, Winchester, VA, and the surrounding four-state area.

Contributions made to WCRH are fully tax-deductible and our parent organization, Cedar Ridge Children’s Home & School, Inc. is an approved 501(c)3 organization. We make every effort to promptly acknowledge your gift with a receipt. Welcome to this year’s Sharathon on The Compass!   You can call us between 6 AM and 8 PM on Wednesday and Thursday or until 9 PM on Friday. Or you may prefer to make your Sharathon faith promise on our secure website using the links below.  God has blessed our station with loyal, faithful listeners who cheerfully support our station, and we are very grateful for each person who heeds His voice and gives.  We sincerely thank you.

Our Guests

Emmitt Fowler is a long-time friend of The Compass and works alongside Bob Lepine at FamilyLife Today.  Emmitt and his wife Jane would love to tell you more about FamilyLife and their ministry if you stop by.  And as a point of interest, Emmitt is a big Nebraska football fan and loves a good cup of coffee!  He’s even been known to drink a bad cupif that’s all that’s around.

You can visit with Emmitt at the studios on Wednesday from 8- noon and 2-4 PM;  Thursday from noon to 2 PM and 4 PM to 8 PM.  Friday he’ll be on from 10 to noon and from 4 PM to 9.


Wayne Shepherd has been on The Compass forever.  Contrary to the rumors, he was not with Marconi when radio was first broadcast – but we digress.  Wayne joins us Wednesday from 4PM-8 PM.  Wayne can speak with you on Thursday from 7 AM-12 PM, and 4 PM-6 PM.  He will also join us Friday from 8-10 AM, 2-9 PM (WHEW – Wayne won’t be on all that time, but we do love having him around!)
