Sunday, May 14, our regular worship experience will be extended, lasting from 10 to 11:30 am. We will serve delicious breakfast, have hands-on activity stations, and enjoy a celebration of Messy Church as it wraps up for summer. Messy Church is our monthly cross+generational faith development event and will return in the fall.
Holy Week & Easter Events
At McFarland UCC we aren’t afraid to do church differently.
When you join us for one of these upcoming activities,
you’ll have a chance to experience the story of Easter – and the events leading up to it - in fresh ways.
Palm Sunday, April 9th 10 am
You won't want to miss this lively service with palm branches for everyone and a play developed by children of the congregation! CLICK HERE for a video invitation.
Messy Easter, April 9th 4:30 - 6:30 pm
Engage your inner child with storytelling, arts and crafts as we retell the Easter story in simple ways. Remind yourself – and teach your dear ones – that the story of Easter has so much more to offer than mere brunch and bunnies. Sunday April 9th. Arrive between 4:30 and 4:45 pm. Dinner is included. We wrap up around 6:15 pm. Questions about Messy Church? Watch our video.
Dinner Church - Maundy Thursday, April 13th 6:15 pm
Good food, spiritual conversation and a chance to build relationships with your neighbors. Dinner church is one of the oldest expressions of church - gathering together, breaking bread, and making sense of scripture and life through conversation around the table.
Dinner and worship begin at 6:15, and we should be done by around 8 pm. (Would you like to help with prep and setup? Email us to be connected with the ministry team, or arrive early; we create the setting together.)
As with all McFarland UCC activities, this is cross+generational - all ages are welcome at Dinner Church.

Easter Sunday Service, April 16th 10 am
