Director of Student Ministries

Welcome to the McFarlin Student Ministries! In our youth program (grades 6-12) we aim to show students how much Jesus loves them and how to walk alongside Christ and each other in their lives! Through missions, small groups, and fellowship we dive deeper into the Christian life and loving all of God’s children. 

Middle School

SUNDAY SCHOOL: Each week is a little different in the way we share and study the Gospel, but the Bible is always the basis for what we do! Students can come and meet in room 321 during the Sunday School hour, 9:40AM – 10:40AM.

YOUTH GROUP: On Wednesday evenings from 7:15PM to 8:45PM, middle schoolers and adult leaders come together for a time of games, snack supper, small groups, and worship! We hope you will invite a friend and join us for the midweek gathering! Drop off and pick up will be at the sliding doors on the southeast side of the building.

BOYS’ BREAKFAST: (Starting August 25th) On Thursdays at 7:00AM, middle school boys are invited to join us in Fenn Hall for a diner-style breakfast prepared by some of our faithful adult volunteers. Before heading to school we circle up for a short time of prayer and devotion, then we load up our church mini buses that go to any of the Norman Public Middle Schools (Whittier, Alcott, Irving, and Longfellow). The southeast sliding doors to Fenn Hall open at 7:00AM. We hope you will invite a friend and join us! Please bring a $5 donation to help cover the cost of the breakfast.

GIRLS’ BREAKFAST: (Starting August 26th) On Fridays at 7:00AM, middle school girls are invited to join us at Panera Bread (2200 W Main Street, Norman, OK 73069). Bring some money to buy breakfast and enjoy the fellowship and laughter with this incredible group! Before heading to school we circle up for a short time of prayer and devotion, then we load up our church mini buses that go to any of the Norman Public Middle Schools (Whittier, Alcott, Irving, and Longfellow). The doors to Panera open at 7:00AM.

Camps and Retreats

WINTER SPARK CAMP: Come join us this Winter as we head to Canyon Camp in Hinton, Oklahoma for our annual Spark Winter Camp! We join over 200 other campers for an incredible 4 days of games, small groups, worship, and many more camp activities!

Our Winter camp is for both middle school and high school. Although we all go to camp together, small groups and activities are broken up by grade, so while you get to go with your entire church family, you get to have small group with people in the same grade as you!

We stay in bunk house style cabins that are setup throughout the camp grounds, each cabin has at least two adults and are split up to be either a boy’s cabin or a girl’s cabin.

When: January 13 -16, 2023

Where: Camp Canyon (31600 Camp Rd, Hinton, OK 73047)
