St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church

We exist to connect people to the fullness of life found in Jesus Christ following the ancient faith of the Orthodox Church

Baptism (1 of 1)-23.jpg


People who were nothing like Jesus gravitated towards Him, and what is true of Christ should be true of us. Regardless of your background or past, your Savior invites you to come and see.


Transcendent Worship

Liturgical & personal worship points us to something so much bigger than ourselves. Our participation in the sacramental life is the foundation of our ancient faith and allows us to enter into a transformational life in Jesus.

Become the Light

The call to carry the True Light to our world applies to us just as much as it did to the early Christians. And we have been entrusted to continue to bring His Light not only to our lives but to our city of Atlanta. 


Still haven't packed a box for Operation Christmas Child?

Don't worry! Join us on Sunday, November 10th in the main ballroom of the hotel after the Eight to pack boxes while enjoying some Thanksgiving refreshments and activities. Remember to sign up here to bring box supplies because you are the party and we cannot do it without you.

Our Future Home

We have been searching for a permanent home where we can serve our existing members and those He leads to us. We have now, by the grace of God, located a building that is large enough for our anticipated growth.
