    Lamb's Creek Church is still in occasional use and is one of four historic churches in King George County, Virginia. The current mother church of the county is St. John's Episcopal Church near the county courthouse in King George, although ironically it is the only one of the county's historic churches not built in the colonial era (built in 1843 after the courthouse's relocation). It, Emmanuel Episcopal Church (also now with occasional services) and Lamb's Creek Church form the Hanover-with-Brunswick Parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. The rector of the parish is the Rev. Diane Carroll. The other active parish in King George County is St. Paul's Episcopal Church near Dahlgren, Virginia. Lambs Creek Church is available for weddings and other events. The Episcopalians of King George hold their annual homecoming service at Lambs Creek Church on the last Sunday of August. The slate-floored church is also used annually for blessing of the animals in early October.
