Church sells bricks that will line walkway

First United Church of Christ (Congregational) is taking orders now through July 31, for personalized bricks that will line the walkway in front of its historic Meetinghouse.

Proceeds from brick sales will benefit the church’s operating fund, which helps pay for maintaining its historic buildings and community outreach ministries.

First United Church of Christ (Congregational) runs Food 2 Kids Milford, helping to keep over two dozen of Milford’s school children fed on weekends; runs the Emma Davis Medical Equipment Ministry that lends more than 500 pieces of medical equipment each year to anyone in need; runs a Food Closet Ministry that gives food to Milford residents who need help, supports the Beth El Center and many other community organizations.

Bricks can be purchased for $100 online at (clicking the

online giving option) or pick up a form at the church office at 34 West Main Street.

Each brick is 4 x 8 inches long with three lines of lettering and up to 18 characters per line. A brick can be purchased in memory of a loved one, in honor of someone special or just to have your name among those already in place at the site.

The first 100 bricks were sold in honor of the church’s 375th anniversary in 2014.
