/, News/The Virginia Synod Christmas Tree Decoration Contest Entries

This year we invited you to show off your Christmas Tree style in The 2016 Virginia Synod Christmas Tree Decoration Contest! With plenty of fantastic submissions, we’re taking a moment to share all of the trees entered from congregations and families of the Virginia Synod, as well as celebrating the two randomly selected winners from this year’s contest!

Thank you to everyone who entered! It has been so much fun to see and share the decorations that fill your homes and congregations.
