“And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: … (Luke 8:1 KJV)

Yesterday I stopped by our church, Faith Baptist Church, and took some photos of the Christmas Village that is set up each year at this time. Our choir gets a few weeks of rest as the Village takes over the choir loft. They were setting up microphones and other things for tonight. The Village will be the background for our Christmas Candlelight service, which is always very special.

Jared Malcolm made them, starting with the Church and then the House. Each year another building was added. Now we have quite a village! Jared is now a missionary in Brazil, but even this year he made sure something new was added. He added the “City of Faith” Water tower and a Flagpole while he was home for a few weeks this year.

It has always been viewed by me from my pew, but while taking the photos, I saw a lot of details that I had no idea were there.

The manger scene of Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus was made by Margaret Lofton this year for our Christmas float. It is now in the foyer.

So, trust you enjoy the slideshow of the village, church decorations, and the manger scene.

P.S. – Thanks to the therapy I have been taking, I actually climbed the stairs to the balcony to take some of the photos. Praise the Lord! That is a great Christmas present.

Lord Bless you as you enjoy this Christmas Eve. May we remember why Jesus came to earth.

One thought on “Christmas Village at Faith

  1. I can really appreciate all of the intricate detail involved. I know personally how tedious that kind of work can be. I’m building a 1/60th scale model of Noah’s Ark that will be on display here at ICR hopefully next week. Any work of this kind is a labor of love as it is done to bring honor and glory to God. Thanks for the pics!
