Every Thursday from 5-6:15 pm, McFarland Lutheran welcomes anyone and everyone to the Shared Table Community Meal. Each week a different community organization provides the food, setup, service, and clean-up. November 7th we will be serving a crowd favorite: Chicken Rice Casserole! Shared Table is a free event and all are welcome at the table. Doors open at 5:00 pm.
Every year MUCC youth join kids across the country in raising money for less fortunate children around the world. Kids may carry UNICEF boxes with them on their Halloween candy routes and collect donations as part of the Trick-Or-Treat for UNICEF program. Boxes are available at the church and can be brought back after Halloween. We will also be taking up a "noisy offering" during worship this Sunday, October 27th! Bring your loose change and wear a costume! Proceeds from the offering also go to UNICEF.
Thank you for pitching in and helping out this past weekend! We had a good time sprucing up the church building and preparing for winter. There were a lot of chores to do, but it was way more fun checking off the "to-do" list together. THANK YOU again!

Special “Break The Silence” Worship Service To Focus On The Realities of Sexual Violence
McFarland United Church of Christ / 5710 Anthony St. / April 28, 2019 / 10 am
McFarland UCC will host a very special worship service called “Break the Silence Sunday” during regular 10 a.m. morning worship on April 28, the Sunday following Easter. The purpose of this service is to sensitively name and address the painful issues connected to sexual violence and to “Break the Silence” of the Church when it comes to this difficult topic.
This service is part of a national initiative within the United Church of Christ to promote healing and to open up safe space for survivors to share their stories and to receive support, hope, and love. According to MUCC’s pastor, Bryan Sirchio,
“the special focus of this time of worship will mark the official beginning of our congregation’s intention
The congregation realizes the potential for a service such as this, where the topic of sexual violence will be named quite directly, to be a trigger for victims and loved ones of victims. For that reason the service has been announced many times in advance, and the entire initiative is being approached with great respect and sensitivity. Says Rev. Sirchio,
“We respect and honor the fact that some people will prefer not to be present at a service such as this.
The public is warmly invited to this very special time of worship, and anyone with questions or concerns
is welcome to contact Rev. Sirchio at the church to discuss the content of the service and the overall
reason why the congregation feels compelled to embrace this initiative.
