Pohick’s Lenten Supper Series Presents Invite, Welcome, Connect

The internationally acclaimed Invite, Welcome, Connect (IWC) program is coming to Pohick March 29-30! IWC promotes a receptive spirituality and intentional evangelism based on Gospel imperatives. As part of our Lenten Series, the IWC event will help prepare us to launch our strategic planning initiative. All youth and adult parishioners are encouraged to attend this very special weekend event, which will include snacks and lunch Saturday free of charge! The program is free for Pohick parishioners, thanks to the generosity of Dave Coderre, who created the Kiki Coderre Memorial Fund in honor of his late wife Kiki Coderre.

Parishioners please RSVP by Feb 14 to Susan Costa by email or by phone. After that, we will open registration with a fee to the Diocese and public.

Recent Sermon

" I pictured Washington in his pew up front, on the left side of the altar; Fairfax on the right; and just across the aisle, Mason. We recognize in them (and share with them) the human motivations of vanity, ambition, and competition. Washington and Fairfax were on opposing sides of the coming Revolution: one a staunch patriot, the other a loyal Tory. Yet, in spite of their differences of opinion, they sat next to one another. They were civil to each other, and listened with respect. Neither did Washington and Mason always see eye to eye. … " Read the sermon: The Sons of Zebedee and Sons of Liberty Transcend Differences to Serve the Common Good

Posted by Pohick Church on Monday, November 5, 2018

During the Colonial period, Pohick Church was the congregation of many of our country's most prominent families, including the Washingtons, Masons and Fairfaxes.

Today, as a vibrant parish of several hundred members, we continue their tradition of Christian worship, study and service in the midst of this historic building and its wooded estate.

As you browse through this site, we hope you will catch some of the "Spirit of Pohick"—a Spirit of joy that springs from our common life in Christ.

Please visit us in person, either to worship with us or to join in one of the many events described on these pages. You will be most welcome here in this holy place where past, present and future come together in a unique and inspiring way.

Come be a part of history in the making!
