100 Years of Faith on Madeline Island
Woods Hall open house and ice cream social
It was a warm but fun event July 4, where we enjoyed ice cream on the lawn between St. John’s and Woods Hall.

Our community potluck barbecue on Joni’s Beach followed services on Lake Superior Sunday, July 18, with the traditional blessing of the lake. Thanks to all who brought food to grill, side dishes, salads, desserts and drinks to share.

A Welcome from our Pastor
Welcome to St John’s United Church of Christ on Madeline Island. Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome here! We are a diverse and dynamic group of spiritual seekers who strive to follow in the way of Jesus as we love God, love each other and care for creation. We gather at 10am every Sunday (and lots of other times too) to sing, pray, laugh, cry, rest, revive and experience the God who is always doing more than we could ever ask or imagine. We’d love for you to join us!
– Rev. Rachel Bauman
