Coast Guard chapel

Houses of God | Bois Blanc Island, Mich.

Issue: "Effective compassion," July 27, 2013

The Bois Blanc Island Coast Guard chapel stands on an island in Lake Huron between the Lower and Upper Peninsulas of Michigan. The building is an old boathouse for the Coast Guard that islanders purchased and moved off the island’s Coast Guard Station. The chapel hosts worship services for as many as 50 people during the summer months and closes during the winter.
