Serve & Give
Inviting you "-to grow deeper into Jesus and the community that bears his name"
Here at McFarland Lutheran Church one of the ways we encourage people “to grow deeper into Jesus and the community that bears his name” is to spend time discovering the God given gifts and talents you’ve been given and to use them to serve God. We believe that every member is a minister and that every ministry is important. We are dependent on God and on each other as the body of Christ.
We encourage you to discover your gifts and talents and find your ministry. The ministry of this congregation is shaped by the gifts and talents of its friends and members.
If you would like to talk with someone regarding your sharing of your time and talents in a particular area of ministry please give them a call directly. Refer to Ministry Opportunities. You may also contact our church office at 608-838-3184 or complete the Time & Ability Form and return it to the church office.
One way you can share your time is by getting involved in our Adopt-A-Highway clean-up. McFarland Lutheran Church is responsible for clean-up along Hwy B, ¾ of a mile east and west of Dunn Town Hall. This is done three times a year, in the spring, summer, and fall.
