Saginaw — A Michigan man designs and builds a church out of Legos and displays it his own house of worship each year as part of a Christmas season tradition.

The Saginaw News reports John Kraemer makes one church per year out of Legos and displays it at Christ the Good Shepherd in Saginaw. This year’s creation, built from about 15,000 Lego bricks, is on display throughout the holiday season.

In the 1990s, Kraemer started coming up with designs for Lego church buildings. At first he kept them at home, but later displayed them.

His first display was a Mount Sinai Lutheran Church in Montrose. In 2003, he put one up at his own church, which then was known as St. Helen Catholic Church, and has done so since then.
