We are saddened to announce the passing of Pastor Al Jandl. Pastor Al provided the vision for The Christmas Train and lent his name to everyone’s favorite Big Al’s Pizza. We know he is home rejoicing with Jesus today. We are honored to carry on the work he started all those years ago.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of LS Church’s founding pastor, Pastor Al Jandl. Almost 50 years ago, Pastor Al planted the seeds for this ministry and dedicated his life to serving the Lord. We rejoice for Pastor Al because we know that he is with our Heavenly Father celebrating a life well lived.

He will forever be remembered for his pioneering spirit and relentless pursuit of the presence of God. At this time, we ask that you pray for peace and comfort for the many people who loved him and were impacted by his life and ministry.

As a church, we are honored to carry on his legacy and to build upon this foundation for the next generation. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and all who knew and loved him.

Today, Pastor Al is fully immersed in God's presence and heaven is rejoicing...as Pastor Al would say, “All is Well.”

A Celebration of Life service will be held on April13th at 6:30pm at LS Church in Alvin, Texas.

We had a great time on the Christmas Train and at Victory Camp. It was a dream for us to go and we've been wanting to do it every year, so it was wonderful and the Go Karts was a nice added touch. My kids and I made a video if you want to check it out. Thanks for the great memories and we'll come again in 2021. Happy New Year!

For the Dec 17th rescheduled riders do we still show up 30 minutes ahead or when the gates open at 5:30?
We drove from Monroe, La to visit & it was well worth the drive! The Elf show was great & we loved the meaning behind everything! Will be back!
why cant i buy more than ten tickets at a time? i have a large group and do not want to buy ten non refundable tickets and not be able to get tickets for the entire group if they run out.
It’s an 80% chance for rain in Alvin tonight. Are y’all canceling the train ride?
Can't wait to go back!
Does anyone know what the first quote on the train ride says? Something about the train...
How long does the santa line last? How early should we plan to come for a 730pm train? Thanks :)
I cannot thank you all enough for the amazing event you put together! It was such a fun, festive and genuine Christmas celebration! This was our first year out but it will now be a tradition!!! After dropping her birthday card to Jesus and Christmas letter to Santa in the mailbox, my 7 year old said “Mommy, you can just feel Jesus here! It’s the REAL Christmas here!” 💖💖💖
Long shot I know. I need 2-4 tickets for tonight at 6:30, anyone selling? Family came into town unexpectedly. TIA
We have tickets for the 6:30 train but we are stuck in traffic. Can we use the tickets that we purchased to get on another train tonight?
