Here at La Jolla Pres., we want to see lives transformed through a relationship with Jesus. One way we witness that is by sharing God’s Story, and equipping you to share His story as well. We strive for sermons that are informative, applicable, inviting and transformative.

Our theme for Advent this year is “COME THOU LONG EXPECTED JESUS  

In 1744, as Charles Wesley was reading Haggai 2:7 he looked around at his community.  He saw the dire plight of orphans around him, as well as the social divide of the people in Great Britain.  He wrote a prayer which eventually became the Advent hymn, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.  He was praying that God would bring deliverance and hope to a troubled and broken society.  

We still pray the same sorts of prayers today.  This hymn reminds us that a Savior was born for us.  A savior who was “Born to set Thy People Free.  Born Thy People to Deliver.  Born a Child and yet a King.  Born to live in us Forever.”  During the season of Advent, we celebrate the one who was born for us and brought us abundant and everlasting life.
