The people of McFarlin have been going, serving and loving since the inception of our great church; it is in our DNA, an integral part of who we are! Whether it is across our church to the food pantry, across the country to places like the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas or across the world to Tanzania, each and every day our efforts make a tangible difference in the lives of people. Lives are changed—both those who serve and those who are served.
In 2023 we will continue to ramp up our efforts to change the world. But we cannot do it without you!
Whether you go, give, encourage or pray, we need each person in the McFarlin family to join us as we continue Changing Lives That Change the World. How will you go, serve and love in 2023?
