The First Presbyterian Church of Milford takes Christ’s call to “Love your neighbor as yourself” seriously. The congregation, as individual members and as a whole, donates time, talent and treasure to a host of ministries dedicated to serving those in need, including Meals on Wheels, People’s Place, Home of the Brave, Habitat for Humanity, the State Service Center, Hospice and others. During the coronavirus pandemic, the congregation found a host of ways to serve God by serving others, including “thank-you” meals to essential health care workers, food and delivery ministries and helping out neighbors whenever possible. We tried our best to be faithful to our calling: “Sharing the love of God with all from the heart of Milford.”

Under the direction of Ms. Tanya D. Mann, the organization helps young people transition successfully to adulthood who may otherwise fall through the cracks.
