Saint Mark Coptic Orthodox Church of Washington DC (SMCOC) was originally established in 1976. We started with a very small congregation that was dedicated to the idea of bringing the rich Coptic Orthodox faith to the area in and around our nation’s capitol, while establishing dedicated facilities to practice their faith and instill these values in their children. As St. Mark's congregation grew, so did our spiritual services and ministries. St, Mark's aims to maintain the spirit and tradition established 2000 years ago by Saint Mark the Evangelist.
Our mission is to help everyone grow in fervent love of Jesus Christ. We are a local church with a global impact. We hold fast to the Orthodox traditions, and incorporate a modern approach to the richness of the Faith.
Our church focuses on being diverse both in membership and service. Everyone is welcome to join us in worship, weekly Bible Study, and Sunday School services.
