One of McFarlin’s annual traditions is to receive a special Easter Offering that supports our Utilities Assistance ministry, which has grown to be the largest of its kind in Cleveland County. This weekly ministry serves those in our community who need help with electric, water or natural gas bills. We have been able to help families who need an extra boost to get through the month, as well as families on the brink of having services turned off.
You can give to the Easter Offering online by clicking the button above, through the McFarlin App, by mailing a check to the church with “Easter Offering” in the memo or by bringing your offering to one of our you in-person worship services.
Lent Opportunities & Events
Palm Sunday Serivces
April 2 @ 8:30 & 11am in the Sanctuary, 11am in Fenn Hall
2000 years ago, Jesus was greeted with the waving of palms and cheering voices throughout as he triumphantly rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. What many hoped for and all could not fathom was the tremendous and comprehensive peace that Jesus would bring about throughout the history of the world, and still inspires today. Worship with us at 8:30 and 11am in the Sanctuary and in Fenn Hall at 11am as we praise the Prince of Peace!
Maundy Thursday Service
April 6 @ 7:30pm in Fenn Hall
On Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, we are taken back to the Upper Room where Jesus had his last supper with his closest friends. We remember that first Holy Communion, how Jesus taught us the importance of washing feet, and what it means to be faithful even in the darkest of moments. Worship with us on Thursday, April 6, in Fenn Hall at 7:30pm as our Modern Worship team leads us this Maundy Thursday.
Good Friday Service
April 7 @ 7:30pm in the Sanctuary
Our 2023 Good Friday worship service will be held on April 7 at 7:30pm in the Sanctuary. This day marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and proclaims God’s purpose of loving and redeeming the world despite human rejection and cruelty. It is a day of reverence and spiritual renewal, as we reflect on God’s love for us demonstrated through the sacrifice of Jesus. Through this sacrifice, we understand that we are forgiven and redeemed as we are drawn closer to God. Join us for this moving and meaningful worship experience as we remember and honor the sacrifice of our Lord.
Easter Egg Hunt
April 8 @ 10:30am Meet in Fenn Hall
Save the date for the 2023 Easter Egg Hunt! The fun will begin at 10:30am we will gather in Fenn Hall and then make our way to the egg hunts! The hunts will be divided by age (infant–5th grade), and there will be eggs, candy and activities!
- Sunrise 6:30am at the Gazebo
- 8am, 9:30am and 11am Sanctuary Services
- 11am Modern Service in Fenn Hall
This Easter we are reminded that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest good news for every aspect of our life—wherever you need good news, the empty tomb has it! As we reflect on the significance of this event, we give praise and thanksgiving for the hope and renewal that comes with it. Come join us in celebrating this joyous occasion with worship, song, and community. Whether you’re a regular attendee or visiting for the first time, all are welcome!
