Making a difference in our community is the heartbeat of
Medford First. God has put a desire in your hearts to be a church that is known in our community as a place that is open to all.
A place where people know we, and Jesus, care for them.
Just a couple of weeks ago, our Women's Ministry provided breakfast for the Medford Police Department. Regularly, Medford Police hold training days in our Ministry Center. Many times they have reported to us how much they appreciate the ability to come to our facility and hold assessments for new officers, and for training. At a recent Police Advisory meeting, Deputy Chief commented on the way First Church supports the Police Department and thanked us for the great breakfast. One of the police personnel was at a different training day and asked to change the day of future trainings so she could be in on breakfast.
Living a lifestyle of sacrificial giving and service results in others
experiencing Christ in real life ways. We continue to pray and are able to see people giving their lives to Christ. It is exciting to hear the reports of many ways we are seeing people reached for Christ
