Greetings and Merry Christmas!

2020 has been characterized by distance, yet Christmas gives us a message of nearness. This year we have been reminded of the fragility of our world as we know it, yet Christmas declares that we still have reasons for joy. 

In the song “Joy to the World,” we sing that God became a man to make his blessings flow as “far as the curse is found.” This is because, as a man, Jesus lived the perfect life we could never live and yet suffered the curse of death that our sins deserve. Because Jesus came, died, and rose, we can be assured that the curse of sin and death that covers the whole earth will not have the final word. Jesus frees all who trust in him from the guilt of sin and, one day he will come again. When Jesus comes again, his blessings will again cover the earth. Sin, death, disease, and distance will be replaced by righteousness, life, healing, and presence, “far as the curse is found.” 

We hope that, whatever Christmas looks like for you this year, you will be able to rest and rejoice in our God who came near: Jesus, who is God with us.

Advent Kids' Video

Don’t miss the last video in our Redeemer Kids’ Advent series! Christmas is here, and in this week’s video we celebrate this God who is with us! Take some time this week to watch as family and to savor the fellowship and peace that he brings.


Are you new to Redeemer? Or been around a while but not gotten plugged in yet? Why not take this time of social distancing to get closer with the Redeemer community? Community groups and women’s Bible studies meet online at different times during the week to study the Bible and pray together. We also have a Wednesday night study on the book of Galatians taught by one of our elders. And if you have tweens (10–12 years) or teenagers (13–18 years), we have groups and activities for them to help them to grow spiritually and to stay connected with their friends.


In addition to our weekly emails and social media posts, we would love to share helpful resources for you to listen to and read. Our hope is that this will both equip and encourage you during the week. To receive these encouragements along with other updates, sign up for our WhatsApp or Telegram channels by clicking on the buttons below.
