May flowers are blooming and so is this congregation in the community. The different session committees and the Deacons are constantly putting our name in the spotlight in Milford. From the Palm Sunday processional to the Animal Blessing, the Sandy Cleanup along the D & R canal, to a community Mother's Day Breakfast, and a Community Father's Day breakfast. There are so many things that we are providing the community, for the community well being not our own.

As a faith community, we are constantly trying to find new ways to connect with all the areas around us but in doing that we need your help. We need helping hands, donations, and prayers. On the first Sunday of every month, we collect the Two Cents a Meal which provides funding for our community food pantries, but more important than that, we collect nonperishable foods as well. Marguerite and Ed York have spearheaded that program for our congregation and it is nothing short of awesome. We have an anonymous family that donates bags of food every two weeks and a local business, US Healthcare Supply LLC, whose employees donate can goods. It is wonderful to see community-helping community during difficult times.

So how can you help, you may be asking yourself, well by just praying is a start and volunteering even just a small portion of your spare time is another. On May 17th and 18th, we will be holding our semi-annual rummage sale. We will need stuff to sell, hands to sort, and people to help clean up afterwards. We need drivers to deliver anything that has not been sold to our local thrift shop for others to browse. On July 29th thru August 2nd we will be hosting our joint VBS with Frenchtown Presbyterian Church. Again, we
need hands, donations and prayers that we fulfill the hopes and dreams of all the children that will attend as they learn more and more about how much God loves them and how they can share that love with others.

As a faith community that has received so much over the years there is much expected in return and we are trying to do our part but we need you too. If you want to find ways to participate in any of our community based offerings please contact the church at 908-995-2481.

From Pastor Linda, March 31, 2013



As we enter this time of celebration with the resurrection of our Lord we also enter a busy time for the continued resurrection of our Church family and mission of the Presbyterian Church of Milford.  With the new elders so excited and full of new ideas and energy, we will no doubt continue to grow.

On April 6th at 10:00 AM we will be hosting a Blessing of the Animals right here at our church.  All animals are welcomed and my friend the Rev. Dr. Patricia Epprecht and I will be most delighted to bless your animal because we both know that our animals are an extension of our families and can sometimes be overlooked.  There will also be clean up days in town, hands on work with Habitat for Humanity, and some of the youth have already said yes to help the Appalachia Service Project this upcoming summer in Jonesville, VA.

On Mother's Day and Father's Day the membership/congregational life  committee is looking at holding a breakfast on those mornings as well as a pot luck supper in October for the whole community to share in, not just our church family.

The deacons have endless activities planned throughout the year like kickball games, baseball games, corn mazes, chili cook-offs, as well as blood drives for the Miller Keystone Blood Mobile.   There are members of our church that are active in the planning of the 2nd annual Milford Alive celebration on September 21st where we hope that our church will be able to enter a new bed for the annual bed race.  The youth group was the last group to enter a bed and they won with their Noah's Ark bed.

Our church is alive, well, and full of energy.  My hope is that each and every one of you will want to participate in the life of the church so we can continue to make a difference in our community and continue to grow our church family.  We need each other and the community needs us.
