First United Church of Christ of Milford celebrates the 200th anniversary of our Meetinghouse!

Founding members of First Church helped establish our Milford community 384 years ago. For the past 200 years, we've journeyed with people through significant milestones: baptisms, confirmations, weddings and funerals. We have weathered storms, wars, and change. We've ministered from this sacred space to local needs through programs like Milford Food 2 Kids, the Emma Davis Medical Equipment Ministry, our White Gift Ministry and our food pantry. 

In September of 1823, First Church began building our 3rd meeting house, which stands today as a beacon! Help us to continue shining that light from this Faith Building and into the community now and for generations to come!
