A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. ~ John 13:34

Our Mission

As the Parish of St. John the Baptist we strive to share the Good news of God, to grow as Christian disciples, and to respond to the needs of the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Service Times

A prayer for the Sundays in May

Dear Lord, please teach us to be gentle. Remind us of the many ways you have shown gentleness to us. When we respond to others, help us see how you love them and died for them, also. Convict us when we descend into mockery or hurtful speech. Show us how to stand for what is right without abandoning gentleness and respect. Teach us to speak the truth in love. Let our gentleness be evident, a clear sign that You are at work in our lives. Amen.

St. John’s clergy is naming the 2017/2018 academic year THE YEAR OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. Each month will focus on one of the nine fruits of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians: love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. May’s theme is GENTLENESS.

NOTE: Church school will not be held on Sunday, May 27.

Sermons help us to reflect on the scriptures that are shared during worship and to gain a new understanding on how these teachings are relevant in our daily lives. For additional sermons go to the menu tab titled “Sermons” at the top of this page to see and hear some of this year’s preachers.



St. John is active in a variety of events including special musical performances, lecture series, travel opportunities, and social ministry volunteer work. At one Sunday service, we partnered with Oregon Episcopal School; students shared some of the ways the church helped them in their faith and in social ministries:
