In coordination with the McFarland Food Pantry, a Giving Tree has taken root in the MUCC sanctuary filled with tags representing families in need throughout our McFarland community.
Simply take a tag off the tree, write your name down, shop for what is listed on your tag, and bring it to church before December 10. Questions? Contact Melissa in the office 608-838-9322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This past Sunday, November 12, we tried a new spin on our usual monthly Messy Church. Because of church building construction an easy to carry "to-go" bag was offered with all the elements of Messy Church: scripture readings, prayer cards, songs, crafts, and even dinner!
The theme this month was THANKFULNESS and once finished with all the activities, participants were encouraged to take their empty Messy Church To-Go bag and fill it with nonperishable items for the McFarland Food Pantry. Thank you!
Check out what a couple families posted on social media about their experience:
Wow! An unprepared Momma and Dad after a long weekend who had not yet started dinner, when we were blessed with Messy church to go right to our doorstep. Now dinner's in the oven and fun family activities are going on. #blessedtobeablessing #mcfarlanducc #messychurch #churchfamily
Take home Messy Church = success! Thank you for putting this together.
