South County churches offering in-person Christmas services

With the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting government mandates, churches throughout South Snohomish County have had to alter how they meet for worship, study and fellowship. Nearly all have some type of online presence for weekly services while some are still able to meet in-person – with certain restrictions.

But the upcoming Christmas season has brought additional challenges for churches and the beloved traditions they participate in.

While some special church services and celebrations have been cancelled for 2020, most churches are continuing their plans — albeit with online presentations streamed live. But some churches have the resources and space to forge ahead with in-person services. Most require reservations in order to keep attendance below government-mandated capacity restrictions, so check-in online before attending.

Here is the listing of South Snohomish churches conducting special in-person gatherings for Christmas 2020.
