Sermon - Pastor Chuck Wahlstrom
" Mary's Song"
We have Christmas postcards hi-lighting our Christmas services. They are perfect for you to take and invite your friends and family. You'll find them at the Welcome table, in the church lobby.
Blue Christmas is a day in the Advent/Christmas season marking the longest night of the year. It is a service that honors people that have lost loved ones and are experiencing grief of one sort of another in the midst of a season that is "merry and bright". We care for those who may be struggling this Christmas in this beautiful, meaningful service.
Both the reality of our own church and the American Church as a whole show us that the old way of “doing church” no longer works if we are to do as Jesus commands us in Matthew 28:19-20:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
This is the challenge the leadership team has been exploring, and we are so excited to share with you all that we have discerned thus far. We hope that everyone will join us in meeting this new challenge in the life of Sonoma Springs Covenant Church.
We look forward to seeing you there.
