Help Us Continue 106 yrs of Service
We are leaders in our community, pro-actively reaching out to those in need. We collaborate and work with city agencies including Milford Department of Human Services and Milford Youth & Family Services and other organizations to help ensure health and safety. Wherever there is a need, we come together to provide – help in a catastrophe like Hurricane Sandy, to food, clothing, blankets and school supplies. We open our doors to so many - from groups needing to come together to battle addiction to providing an affordable, fun night out for families – something which is becoming more and more difficult to do as those struggle to make ends meet.
We also help support critical ministries around the world, from education to disaster relief. We support the efforts of Church World Service (an inter-denominational relief agency) through gathering health & school kits. Did you know that we provided more school kits and backpacks filled with essentials to more children than we have members of our church?
We are a small church with a BIG heart seeking to be “doers of the Word, not hearers only” (James 2:22).
Please support us – every dollar counts. For each $5 donation, you will receive a wristband – a reminder that we should all open our hearts, minds and doors to everyone.
Don’t forget to share this page with all of your friends and click the heart in our picture so as we update it with news of our community outreach, you can see your dollars in action! Also visit our website to learn more. Together we can make a difference.
Ernst is the former owner of the Encon Heating & Air Conditioning Company of Stratford, CT, a company he founded in 1969. From a small staff, he built the company to be a leader in residential and commercial HVAC solutions along with solar, geothermal and other energy solutions serving Fairfield County, CT and Westchester County, NY.
Jean began her employment in 1970 as part of the company’s office staff until her retirement in 2007. When Ernst became ill, Jean made him a prayer shawl, a prayerful hug to provide comfort that was blessed and dedicated during worship accompanied by prayers.
Ernst, always known for his generous support of his employees and co-workers, made an extraordinary gift to the church in honor of Jean. We thank Ernst for his generous contribution and pray for him as he wages a battle with cancer and leukemia. God Bless You, Ernst Benzien.
