At First Church, Milford, we believe that God is Still Speaking and hopes we are still listening!
We offer learning opportunities for members and friends of all ages, who seek a deeper understanding of Christian scripture and tradition and a community in which to explore their faith.
Kelsey DeCarlo (Minister of Faith Formation), Tracy Hoppock, and the Faith Formation Ministry and all the teachers help create inspiring and formational discipleship opportunities.
With the use of bible stories, prayers, music, multi-media resources, creative media and class interaction, we are able to grow in Christ's love, to discern our gifts, and to listen for God's individual and collective call.
Christian nurture and formation begin with our Nursery, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and Confirmation programs, supported by over 50 teachers and helpers. [ more ]

The Faith Formation Committee, chaired by Tracy Hoppock, works all year to provide opportunities for faithful learning and formation to all ages of First Church's membership and friends. We believe that our ministries need to be current and applicable to those whom we serve, which means that we continue to evaluate and craft plans according to the lived experiences of the children, youth and adults of our church. We offer programs, studies, events and retreats for church members and friends who seek a deeper understanding and practice of our Faith ... [ more ]
Teachers & Advisors
We encourage all generations of our congregation to be actively involved in the Christian Education and Formation of our children. Our Sunday School Leadership Teams consist of adults and youth from the congregation. Sunday School teachers share Bible stories and their own stories with our children, giving them the language and assurance to build their own faith understanding. Some high school students, including our confirmands, assist in the classes; their presence and excitement give a powerful witness to the children and the whole church family. [ more ]
