Mission Statement
To know Christ and to make him known by growing the St. John's community
through excellent: worship, particularly music and preaching Christian formation,
adult, youth, and child, and community action, internal and external.

Vision Statement
To know Christ and to make him known.
To be a growing and vibrant multiracial Christian Community, living our baptismal
promises in an integrated, responsive, and stable life in Christ
in the Anglican Tradition.

All Are Welcome Here!
Founded in 1692, we have been serving our surrounding communities of
Ft. Washington and Oxon Hill, Maryland for over 314 years. You are invited
to share this rich tradition and to join us in carrying on a legacy of support
to our parish members and service to our neighbors in need.

St. John's
is a diverse community of believers and seekers.
All are welcome to join our parish family. You will enrich our lives with your
presence and your talents. At the same time, you will also receive the unique
blessings only available to you from a vital and productive gathering
of loving and caring Christians.

Since we are a small parish, you will find us to be very accessible.
You will not be “lost” here. We will get to know each other immediately
and you will soon feel that you are a full-fledged member of our family.
We have many activities, both in “reaching-out” to the community
and in our own rich social life. Thus, we are sure you will find a rewarding
experience here in addition to the spiritual blessings of our worship services.



Many thanks to the Episcopal Diocese of Washington for providing us with a home on the Web!
