Note: The January Figure is a once a year number. It is over 2X previous years results. We have been averaging around 300 unique visitors a month. This figure does not include repeat visits. It is the important number to track. Our average unique visits is significantly better than previous years. I expect our number of unique visits will continue to improve as we upgrade the website, post better quality/interesting pictures, slideshows, and YouTube video as well as Facebook, G+, and YouTube Promotions refering people reached to the Website..

Sharing the JOY of CHRIST in our community -

 

First Presbyterian of Milford opens its doors during the Milford Stroll. Free refreshements, crafts for all ages and a sanctuary where inspiring music and slides create a place for all to pray and reflect. It's a time to get to know our neighbors.

First Presbyterian of Milford working with The Presbytery of New Castle Delaware sent a member to the Democratic Repulic of Congo. 

 


 

Congo Mission Partnership

 

For several years, our Presbytery of New Castle has had a partnership with the Presbyterian Churches in Kananga, Democratic Republic of Congo. In 2006 the First Presbyterian Church of Milford helped to sponsor one of our members to visit the 14 Presbyterian churches in

 

Kananga.

 

 Although the DRCong hase a vast abundance of economic resources, the country has been plagued with disease, civil war and corruption and has the world's lowest GDP per capita  and Human Development Index score. In a country of dispair, the Church is the only source of hope. Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in the Congo.

 Come, all who are weak and heavy laden!

 

Together we learn about Christ's ministry

 

We believe that Christ is present in the world through our caring. Along with our financial support to missions, you can find our family of faith volunteering at the food pantry, soup kitchen, senior center, hospital, youth center, prison, Circle of Light, Habitat projects and many places around our community. We believe that little things done in love help can do much to bring the love of Jesus to others. We collect food items, toiletries, eye glasses, pop-tops and hold various other drives throughout the year. Our Busy Fingers group knit, crochet or make items for charities or sale and love helping other to learn a craft. We support caring work around the world.

 

            Friends and visitors are welcome to share in all ministries.

 

If you are interested in joining in our ministries or contributing send an email to milpress2off@verizon.net" data-mce-href="mailto:milpress2off@verizon.net" style="outline:none;color:rgb(5, 110, 165)">milpress2off@verizon.net , call us at 302-422-5701 or by joining us any Sunday.  

 


 

 A simple meal, time to make friends and a love of Our Lord! Thanks to our friends the Church of the Nazarene the doors of First Presbyterian were open to families and folk lacking in basic needs. Guests are served Monday nights at 7pm.
