Welcome to CHRISTMAS HOPE 2020
Christmas Hope 2020 is a Live Nativity for the Community of Sonoma, celebrating the light in the darkness. St. Andrew has partnered with fellow Sonoma Communities of Faith to find the hope in this challenging year.
Together, with our site partner Hanna Boys Center, on Saturday, December 19, 2020 from 5-8pm and Sunday, December 20, 2020 from 5-8pm the community of Sonoma is invited to drive through the beautifully decorated Hanna campus and follow the Christmas story, viewing the Live Nativity.
We will be following Covid-19 safety protocols and guests will stay in their cars, enjoying this great family event, while tuning in to the Christmas story.
This event will also be a community fundraiser for our local non-profits. The entrance way to Hanna will be beautifully lit by Christmas trees, donated by Moon Mountain Christmas Tree Farm. We invite St. Andrew members and friends to consider sponsoring a tree – all proceeds will benefit our annual Romania Flour/Food Mission. To donate to this beautiful and meaningful mission project (any amount is gratefully accepted – $25, $50, $100, or $200 to sponsor an entire tree) simply follow this link to donate.
Following the drive through event, the decorated trees will be delivered by the St. Andrew Youth Group on Monday, December 21st to a F.I.S.H. (Friends in Sonoma Helping) appointed local family in need, to brighten their Christmas celebration!
I hope you are all excited about this wonderful event, and will consider helping out and joining in the fun! We have several volunteer positions to pull off the many details for this event. Follow this link for volunteer opportunities!
I thank each and everyone of you, once again! Time and time again our St. Andrew family continually shows up to hold God’s love and light – May this Christmas Season be no different!
As always with gratitude,
St. Andrew Missions Coordinator
