There are three ways to give in our 2019 Advent Offering:
Affordable Christmas is an empowering shopping experience for
low-income families that allows them an opportunity to provide
Christmas presents for their children at a very low cost. New toys are
donated and then sold for 1/10th of the retail value. We have the amazing opportunity to serve at Affordable Christmas at Redemption Alhambra this year. All proceeds raised from Affordable Christmas will benefit the work of Foster Care Initiatives with birth families whose children are at-risk or in the foster care system.
When: Saturday, December 14 from 8am-2pm (three shifts are available)
Where: Redemption Church Alhambra
1830 West Glenrosa Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85015
We’re also collecting toys for Affordable Christmas. Please be sure to deliver to Redemption Arcadia by Sunday, December 1. Gifts can also be shipped to Redemption Alhambra (1830 West Glenrosa Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85015) directly by December 8.
Here’s a list of toy ideas:
Our monetary Advent offering will be split between three organizations this year:
Hope for Children Ethiopia
Hope for Children Ethiopia works to eliminate extreme poverty and see a holistic improvement in the lives of underprivileged communities in Ethiopia. Their mission is to care for deprived people regardless of social status, race, age, or sex, and enable them to achieve the best in their lives through improving their skill to become a productive and self-reliant citizen.
Along Side Ministries
Along Side Ministries works to disciple and equip incarcerated Christians while they transition successfully into community.
Immigrant Hope works to equip churches to provide immigrants with the hope of the gospel, help finding a pathway to legal residency, and a home in a church that cares for their needs.
