Advent: Hope

Dear Redemption City Family,

On Sunday we begin our Advent Series at Redemption City Church. Advent is a time for us as a church to focus on the humility of Jesus’ first coming and the promise of Jesus’ second coming. 

When we celebrate Advent, we re-live all of the longing and yearnings for the coming of the Messiah that our fathers in the faith experienced before us. We look back and remember the people of the Old Testament as they waited for the Savior that God had promised through the prophets. 

Advent reminds us that God became an infant by sending His Son, Jesus, to the world to live the perfect life that we could not. Jesus came to redeem His people by dying on a cross, as our substitute, for our sin so that the wrath of God the Father would be completely satisfied, and we would be fully accepted. 

I pray you’ll join us as we explore themes of hope, peace, joy, and love over the next four weeks. Don’t allow the holidays to steal your joy, but rather allow the grace of God to transform and renew you.  

Christ is All, 
Pastor Juan
