Christmas 2022



The Christmas season can feel a little chaotic at times! Shopping! Parties! Travel! Presents! Wrapping!

So much to do... so little time to do it. 

We'd like to invite you to slow down in the midst of it. We know that's easier said than done. In the midst of this busy holiday season, join us at Sherwood Oaks Christian Church as we slow down to talk about love, hope, joy and peace. 

You'll find information about all the upcoming Christmas activities for both campuses and various ministries on this page! We do hope you have a Merry Christmas!
