The Alpine Christmas Village is a very special Christmas experience, full of wonder and excitement, designed to become a holiday tradition to many area families and a vital part of our church ministry and outreach.  Created to share the gift that changed the world - the birth of Jesus Christ, College Avenue volunteers spend countless hours throughout the year organizing, planning, creating gifts, setting up, decorating, and preparing - and that's all done even before our first guest arrives.

The Alpine Christmas Village is a step into the past, filled with the wonder of thousands of lights and the magic of a fantasy Christmas town.  With merchants and shops, a Village clock tower, a snow area, popcorn, and the Christmas story told from the perspective of the animals.  The Alpine Christmas Village is truly amazing and creates the perfect atmosphere reminiscent of a fairy tale.  Each of the shops feature a different concept, and a free gift for each child ages birth through fifth grade.  The Alpine Christmas Village is built for children - to provide gifts and joy for the season, but adults love it as well.  Many of our guests have indicated each year that the Christmas Village provides their family's only Christmas.  However, you should be prepared to enjoy the "best time of your life" as you enjoy the upcoming annual College Avenue Alpine Christmas Village.

This year we are asking each adult attending to join us in the Spirit of giving by donating a can of food for the hungry of our community.  The food will be divided between our mission partners at the Lenoir Soup Kitchen and Yokefellow Ministries.  Children are admitted free.

Due to the popularity of this event, reservations are required.
