What if someone wanted to bring a bottle of wine to the church’s Christmas luncheon?


Hello Minister,

I have a hypothetical question. A member of your church of Christ brings a container of fermented fruit juice (grape?) to the annual Christmas lunch in your auditorium. He wants to have it with the meal. What if any is your response to him?


I had to chuckle because your question shows little knowledge of Christian practices.

  • We don't have meals in the building. Social activities belong in the home. The building is for doing the things authorized by God. See: About Church Socials.
  • We don't celebrate man-made holidays, such as Christmas, as a congregation. See: Who Put Christ in Christmas?
  • We do not use alcohol or other drugs recreationally. See: Social Drinking.
