Senior Pilgrim Fellowship
Senior Pilgrim Fellowship (Senior P.F) is First Church's open and inviting high school youth group. All youth in grades nine through twelve are invited to participate in our regular weekly meetings, which usually take place on Sunday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in Fellowship Hall throughout the school year, with some additional programs in the summer.
Adult leadership in the group is provided by our Associate Pastor and a corps of devoted advisors. Programs include discussion groups, service events, retreats/lock-ins, games, group-building activities, an annual youth-led worship service, movie nights etc.
At the end of June, Senior P.F. usually embarks on a multiple-day mission trip to renovate or build housing. Mission trip participants are required to help in fundraisers and attend preparation meetings in the months leading up to such trips.
Senior P.F. has received Milford's Mayor's Youth Award in 2004 and 2007 for outstanding service to the Milford community.
