Welcome to The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist. Our mission is to provide a vibrant space in which community can form to worship, grow in faith, and be challenged to respond to the needs of others in the community and in the world.
We strive to live into these words of our mission statement:
Living God’s Word encourages us to extend the lessons of compassion and love we learn in worship and study to our daily lives. At the conclusion of every worship service we are sent into the world to be the human face of the Good News of Jesus’ love.
Loving God’s World reminds us of our responsibility to be good stewards of God’s blessings — to work for social justice in our community, country, economy, and world – to protect and preserve the environment – and to respect the dignity and freedom of every human being.
Growing in God’s Love calls us to mature in our faith. We know that God loves each of us where and how we are. This is our starting point. We are co-creators with God and share God’s transformative love.
Please join us on Tuesday, December 19 at 6:30 p.m. for the Celebration of a New and Mutual Ministry as the Rev. Kate E. Wesch is installed as the rector of St. John the Baptist. The Rt. Rev. Gregory H. Rickel, Bishop of Olympia, will preside over this formal service of induction. A musical prelude will begin at 6:00 p.m. and a festive reception will immediately follow the service in the Parish Hall.
