What's New

  • Check out our Newsletter!

  • FBCOC and COVID-19
    • April 3, 2020
    • The Coronavirus Response Team met on April 1 and decided to cancel Sunday morning worship and church activities through the month of April. The group will meet again in two weeks to re-evaluate the situation.
    • The Worship Podcast has been very well received, and will continue as long as needed. It's available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts. If you need help accessing it, please let us know.
    • Our church finances are healthy. We are grateful for those who are giving. As we continue through April, please continue prayerfully giving as you are able. This is a lean time for many people. We don't give out of obligation or coercion, but as a recognition of God's blessings and anticipation of the renewing work God will do with our gifts. Thithes and offerings can be mailed into the church at:
      • First Baptist Church of Oregon City
      • PO Box 1686
      • Oregon City, OR 97045
    • Beginning April 3, we will have daily Bible readings and prayer on Facebook Live, Instagram, and YouTube. The passages and prayers will be emailed out to those who don't have access to social media. A weekly digest of all emails will be mailed out to church members who don't utilize email.
    • The Friday "What's Happening" email will be replaced with a weekly email column from Pastor John and Melissa. They'll take turns writing a thought for the week.
    • The HOPE Food Pantry continues to operate on a weekly basis, having shifted to curbside distribution of pre-packed food boxes. Volunteers are wearing gloves and practicing physical distancing and regular hand-washing for safety.
    • We are working on utilizing the Zoom Video Conference tool as a way to connect people face-to-face. There are some exciting possibilities, even for people who don't have a smartphone or computer video camera.
  • Holy Week Celebrations
    • Holy Week is the time period beginning with Palm Sunday and ending with Easter. Here are some ways we can celebrate together as a church:
      • In recognition of Palm Sunday, join with other churches around the country in hanging a green branch on your front door. If you have access to a palm tree, great! If not, use what you have. What matters is the celebration of Jesus as King!
      • Every day of Holy Week, Pastor John will be emailing a thought. The Lenten sermons have traveled with Jesus to Jerusalem. What happened after he got there? Look for it in your email inbox.
      • There will be a special edition of the podcast on Good Friday that will guide us through the arrest, "trial," and crucifixion of Jesus.
      • Easter Sunday there will be the usual Sunday edition of the podcast. Pastor John and Katie will also be driving to the homes of church members to greet everyone (from the sidewalk) with the traditional Easter greeting of "Christ is risen!" and the response of "Christ is risen indeed!" Look for more information - and a special sign - in your mail this coming week.

OUR VISION

First Baptist Church of Oregon City is a family of believers committed to helping others and sharing the hope we have in Christ.  We believe and live, share and care, grow and go as active witnesses of the Kingdom of God on earth.
