Traditional Christian Values For Today's Families

St. Francis Episcopal Church is a faithful and caring community in the heart of Potomac Village.  We strive to apply traditional Christian values to our lives every day.  Our church is conveniently located just outside the beltway, where River Road meets Falls Road.  There is lots going on in our community, and we have something for everyone, from young children to savvy seniors.

Our Christian Education program begins with Sunday School for Pre-K children and continues through elementary and middle school. For students in grades 7 – 12, our youth group meets weekly.  Finally, Adult Forums are held during Sunday School and focus on a variety of interesting and timely topics.

Outreach is a large part of our mission, and there are always service projects and outreach events to support.  We work closely with organizations both locally and internationally to help those who need a hand up.  From serving meals at shelters and soup kitchens to Lenten service projects and Christmas baskets to mission trips, there are many ways for you to get involved.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!  Be sure to introduce yourself if you are new to our community.
