Church History


The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, was organized in 1788.  Previous to 1788, a meetinghouse was raised in 1784 on the Milford Oval.  Reverend Humphrey Moore was called to serve as the first pastor in 1802, and continued his pastorate for thirty-four years.  Since that time there have been twenty-nine pastors, whose labors have enriched the life of this Church.  In 1962, redecorating was done throughout the church.

Founded by 19 local families, the First Congregational Church of Milford was originally part of the Congregational Churches in the USA. These were first organized when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Plantation (1620) and the Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (1629) acknowledged their essential unity in the Cambridge Platform of 1648.

Since its inception, the First Congregational Church has been driven by its Purpose, guided by its leaders and members, and united by its Covenant.
