HEALTH & WELLNESS MINISTRY TEAM

The Health and Wellness Vision Team is responsible for identifying the needs of the congregation and surrounding community relating to physical, mental and spiritual health. We also provide and coordinate opportunities for ministry in these areas.

For example, we coordinate a yearly flu shot clinic in our facility and a Red Cross Blood Drive, we offer periodic low impact exercise classes such as Tai Chi, we host a workshop addressing life transitions, we have recently become an emergency Red Cross Shelter and we have been exploring cooperative efforts with village officials for emergency preparedness.

The Health and Wellness Vision Team currently meets on the first Monday of each month. If you are interested in Health & Wellness Vision Team please contact our church office at 608-838-3184 or complete the sharing your time and talents form.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Have you ever wondered what a prayer looks like? I have a prayer that is warm, soft, and pink that wraps around me. It is a prayer shawl. While it was being made each stitch was filled with prayers for me, and every time I savor its warmth I feel those prayers. It was a gift of God's love to me through the skill and the prayers of the person who made it.

Here at McFarland Lutheran Church people are knitting and crocheting these shawls filled with prayer. We want to reach out to those in need with a prayer shawl of prayers and love to comfort, console and strengthen our family of faith. We want to be a reminder of Gods promise that God is always with us. If you are interested in please contact our church office at 608-838-3184 or complete the sharing your time and talents form.
