Information and suggested gifts for the boxes are available on the table in the hallway.  Please remember filled Shoe boxes and $7.00 per shoe box to help with shipping & other expenses need to be dropped off at the church by Wednesday November 13th so we can get them to the drop off point on time.

Change in Touchstone Delivery

Due to changing postal requirements and our mailing list, after the first of the year we will no longer be mailing the Touchstone newsletter as we have been doing for years.

The Touchstone is currently posted in its entirety, including an updated calendar, on our church website, www.medfordfriendschurch.org. If you would be content reading the Touchstone on line please let our secretary Terry Wilson know by emailing her at terry@medfordfriendschurch.org and in the subject line write Touchstone.

We will also make available on the table in the foyer a number of copies of the Touchstone in printed form for people to pick up after the first of each month. And for those people for whom those methods do not work we can mail it to you. If you need us to mail you a copy please let Terry know by sending an email, a note in the mail, a note on Sunday morning or by calling her at the church office, 541-772-6926.  Thank you for your help and patience while we make this change.
