Christmas Services in South County Churches

We pulled together a list of Christmas Eve and Day services at churches located throughout South County. The majority  of churches we spoke with will host family and candlelight services on Christmas Eve.  Two churches including Holy Family in Davidsonville and St. James  in Lothian will hold Christmas Day celebrations.


We were not able to obtain the service times for all of the churches on our list; however, we left messages for those we are missing and will update the information as it becomes available. In addition, we have provided the address and phone number so that our readers may contact the churches directly with any questions.

Merry Christmas!
