Divine Liturgies have resumed in our church building, while all other ministries remain online.  You may watch our live-streaming services at:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD1G_SB-cgelyTTp7ikO2

Many of us shop at Amazon, and now that shopping can be used to support our church at no additional cost to you!  Simply go to https://smile.amazon.com, sign in using your amazon.com information, and designate St. George Coptic Orthodox Church of Maryland as the charitable organization you will be supporting (Make sure it says Cabin John, MD before selecting the organization).  After that, shop as you normally do and Amazon will donate 0.5% of each purchase to our church.  God bless.
