The First United Church of Christ of Milford will hold a Contemplative Service of Healing for the Tragedy in Las Vegas on October 4. The church will join as a community of faith in solemn prayer for those grieving after the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday.
On Monday, Oct. 2, 2017, the church began a vigil with luminaries in front of the Sanctuary to lament the loss of life. These lights will remain through the Service on Wednesday evening.
The community is invited to gather for music and prayer, remembering those who have died, been injured and for God’s people in general. Pastors and lay people from local churches will lead the service.
The first UCC Congregational is located at 34 West Main Street, Milford, near the lower duck pond. There is a parking lot up West Main Street from the church, across from the Parsons auditorium. For all questions, contact Rev. Ashley Grant at 203.877.4277 ext. 303.
