What’s the purpose of the church?

(This is the sermon I preached yesterday, Sunday, December 13, 2020. You can see the entire service from our website — www.ststephenlc.org.)

What’s the purpose of the church? Have you ever considered that question? Maybe that doesn’t seem like a 3 rdweek of Advent type of question. I mean, we’re all focused on the coming of baby Jesus right? Getting ready for Christmas, with the decorations, buying gifts, and all sorts of other things, especially this year when everything is so different.
