About US


The Community Center was the original structure which housed our gatherings. After a decade or so of use, it was ready to be retired! We thank the hard-working volunteers & the generous folks who donated for our new facility!

The Root Cellar

The creation of our root cellar! While the cellar has evolved into a useful space to shelter our necessary tools, it still maintains it's rugged appeal!


In the Summer of 1999, Deeply Rooted began her journey as a nonprofit Pagan Church situated in the loam of rural Northwoods Wisconsin. Those first few years were a wild ride. Like just about every organization involving people, Deeply Rooted Church encountered the challenges & stumbling blocks which are involved with growth.

Founded by Wade Mueller, Deeply Rooted was intended to be a place for folks to form a deeper connection with the natural world around them. Void of the constant electrical chatter of machinery & the bombardment of the internet, the land of Deeply Rooted provided Pagan folk with the ability to tune into the vibes of the world around them.

Over the years, Deeply Rooted saw Pagan culture evolve into what it is today. Paganism isn't done yet! We've got an uphill battle to conquer before we can really get to work! Our church strives to be a sanctuary where folks can be themselves & be presented with the opportunity of self-growth, empowerment, and Tribe.

If you feel called to our community, please don't hesitate to contact us! We'd be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our organization or Paganism!

it wasn't easy

In 2014, Deeply Rooted Church began construction of the new lodge. Through the generous donations of many caring folks, and the hard labor put in by our volunteers, we were able to construct a splendid new area for our members to meet & greet!

change is the one CONSTANT we can rely on

After many hard struggles, our new lodge was finally standing!
