The Christmas Train
Victory Camp – Alvin ,TX
Each year in December hundreds of volunteers from LS Church come together to setup and host the Christmas Train at Victory Camp in Alvin. The event began back in 2000, and over the years has quickly become one of the Houston areas favorite Christmas Events. The train is open to the public and all ages are welcome.
Victory Camp, which is the winter home of the Christmas Train, was founded in 1992 with one goal in mind – reaching the next generation. Several years after the opening of Victory Camp, an opportunity arose for a train from the San Antonio zoo to be purchased. In the summer of 1999, “Old Smokey” would move to his new home at Victory Camp and help welcome the first year of the Christmas Train.
LS Churchs’ Founding Pastor, Al Jandl, riding “Old Smokey” our first train! Old Smokey was purchased from the San Antonio Zoo in the summer of 1999.
Lead Pastors James and Stephanie Pitkin want to welcome you not only to the experience the Christmas Train, but to come and experience Sunday morning services at LS Church. The Church is made up of people from all walks of life that come together each week to worship Jesus and connect people to Him. Services are held each Sunday morning at 10:30am.
