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.

COVID-19 Update In consultation with our clergy, vestry, wardens, and safety protocol team (which includes two physicians), as well as state, county and diocesan guidelines, and after having listened to parish input in our latest poll, we are very excited to announce that we will be reintroducing in-person worship in a limited capacity at our 8:00 a.m. Sunday eucharist, beginning on May 2, 2021. Thanks to all the many parishioners who shared their hopes, concerns, fears, and support in our recent survey. Sunday 10 a.m. and Daily Offices will continue to be held online for the time being. Visit our Facebook page or click the Online Worship link to learn about online events. Please do keep in touch with the clergy, who are still on the job, working from home. Let us know your needs. For more information about the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon response to the COVID-19 circumstances, please visit the diocesan COVID-19 information page.
