Christmas Village Traditions

Written by Christine Hecker, Director of Student Ministries at the Village Church.


When we were children, our father always set up the most adorable little Christmas Village every year. He would tell us stories of the villagers – where they were going; what they were doing; who was down on their luck and in need…each year the stories changed.

That tradition has continued as my siblings and I set up our own Christmas Villages each year and tell stories of the miniature people residing in their quaint cottages to our children. It is our hope to pass down our dearly collected villages to them and that the tradition will continue from generation to generation. As I look forward to setting up the Village this year with my now ‘young adult’ kids, I am reminded how fortunate I am to be a part of Village Church. We’re a Church that is very aware that there are many needs in our San Diego communities, and across the globe, and we work diligently to meet those needs with the gifts God has given us – time, talents, and treasures, at Christmas and throughout the year.
