  • We are intentionally cleaning and sanitizing before and between services.

Fellowship

Presently, we are directing all fellowship to take place outside of the building with caution. We would encourage you not to use the narthex for conversations before or after the service. 

What can I do?

We still have cleaning and usher team needs. If you are able to help, please let us know by contacting the church office at (715) 748-4936 or office@fbcmedford.com.

Regather in Unity

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. –Philippians 2:1-4
