Countryside Church was first available in 2008 and was modeled after late-Victorian or Gothic Revival churches, the steeples of white clapboard buildings like this one are visible across the Midwestern countryside as reminders of hard work and good faith. These churches, with their creaking floorboards, weathered roofs, and stained glass, are the homes of more modern congregations today. But their Christmas services are times of old-fashioned togetherness, warmth, and rejoicing echoes of the pioneering faithful who built them over a century ago.

Since colonial days, New England families and their neighbors have been gathering to celebrate Christmas in white, wood frame churches.
