COVID-19 Madeline Island Emergency Fund

St. John’s United Church of Christ received a significant donation to create a COVID-19 Madeline Island Emergency Fund. The Fund’s purpose is to help full-time island residents bridge a financial gap due to lost/reduced income, extraordinary expenses, or temporary hardship as a result of the impact of COVID-19. The donation was given directly to St. John’s UCC for the purpose of providing immediate assistance to islanders.

St. John’s offers help amid COVID-19 crisis

Dear Friends,

In the midst of this ever-evolving pandemic, St. John’s remains here for you. Our ministries, programs, and resources are going strong. Please be in touch with me (831-566-0353) if I can support you in any way.

St. John’s offers many outreach opportunities available for all. We invite you to use these services as needed and to volunteer to help support those in need.


St. John’s moving to online worship only

Dear friends,

I invite you to grab a cup of coffee or tea, settle into your favorite chair at home, and participate in our online worship every Sunday at 10am (Central time). Sheri, Joe and I will be in the sanctuary to lead singing and prayer. I’ll have a story for children toward the top of worship. I’ll also preach a brief message about an ancient spiritual practice that can help sustain us in uncertain times. You might even consider having bread and juice on hand wherever you will be watching so we can take communion “together” while apart. (more…)
