The McFarlin Missions impact our local community in life-changing ways. We do this through key partnerships with local agencies, organizations, churches, and schools; our goal is to partner where we can for maximum effectiveness. Through our many local missions there are many ways to serve. If you are interested in serving please contact Scott Meier. 

The McFarlin Food Pantry seeks to get food to those in our community who are experiencing food insecurity. Located in the Aldersgate House on the northside of our property, you will find the Food Pantry buzzing with activity throughout the week as volunteers prepare to serve on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Serving with our partners (Madison Elementary, Jackson Elementary, Adams Elementary, and Irving Middle School), our Mobile Food Pantry truck goes to a different school each Tuesday night to hand out bags of food.

The second Tuesday of each month we serve a hot meal for those in need from 6pm to 7pm. Starting in September Tuesdays Together will meet in Fenn Hall.

Partnering with, McFarlin strives to support the teachers and staff through a variety of way and special projects. We also have Madison Elementary, Jackson Elementary, Adams Elementary, and Irving Middle School​opportunities for people to mentor children in the classroom.

While we hope and pray disaster never strikes, we are also prepared to respond to the call to help in times of unexpected natural disasters. We have a team ready to respond to the call in ways that will help make a difference for those impacted by disaster.

Making sure people have access to affordable housing is important to McFarlin’s desire to be a Missional Church. We are partnering with Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity in a variety of ways, including building homes, supporting the Re-Store with donations, and building wheelchair ramps for those with need.

In addition to working with Habitat for Humanity, we have also taken on construction projects that benefit people and ministries.  We have worked with local churches, local agencies, and individuals in need of a variety of construction projects. We are always looking for people to help in this ministry.
