Advent 2021

Starting November 28, we enter the season of Advent, a time of anticipation. Derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming,” the season of Advent inspires us to look forward, anticipate, and await the mystery of Christmas.  This year’s theme is Close to Home.

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
