The word Advent derives from the Latin word meaning coming. During Advent we recall the history of God's people and reflect on how the prophecies and promises of the Old Testament were fulfilled.
During Advent, Redeemer Radio will have prayers, reflections, information and projects to do by yourself or with your family.
On Twitter we will be posting daily Bible verses and nightly prayers. Retweet them to your friends or reply on what it meant to you. Don't have Twitter? You can still see the tweets on our Social Media page!
Facebook and Twitter will have Intention Tuesday's where we ask for your prayers intentions. The staff of Redeemer Radio then remember you and your intentions during our daily staff prayer. Check Facebook and Twitter every Tuesday, or e-mail your intentions to Submit@RedeemerRadio.com.
