The Good Samaritans provide a ministry to our shut-ins through personal cards and notes. A kind word or thought shared in a card brightens one’s day and brings a smile knowing that they are being thought of and prayed for. If you know of someone we should be contacting through this ministry, please call Pastor Tice with the information.
Contact Pam Lee for more information.
Caregivers Support Group
A compassionate, confidential, judgment-free evening out for caregivers who need someone to listen, a shoulder to cry on or share some laughs to lighten the load that all caregivers carry. This group is inclusive to those from the community as well as those within the church. The group meets the 3rd Monday of every month in the church parlor at 7pm.
Contact Kathy Wiggins for more information.
Health Place Ministry
A team backed by the Parish Health Ministry Team of the Episcopal group to provide community information sessions, blood pressure checks, blood drives and seasonal events geared to both our physical health as well as our spiritual growth. Dates for activities TBD.

The Stephen Ministry program at Milford First belongs to all of us. We all probably know someone who is going through something. Tell them about Stephen Ministry. And if they would like for a trained, caring Stephen Minister to walk with them, have them contact referrals coordinator Kathie Cooper (513-319-1822), Pastor Steven, or Pastor Bill. You may also contact one of them to find out how you can become a Stephen Minister.
Our philosophy is simple — to use the teaching of Jesus as our touchstone as we seek the embrace and full inclusion of ALL among the fellowship of believers. Ultimately, our goal is not to have an “Inclusion Team” at Milford First, but simply to be inclusive — because that’s who we are.
