Milford United Methodist Church
In addition to ministries conducted by Milford United Methodist Church, we are also home to several community organizations:
SHARE Homeschool Group
An inclusive, members-driven homeschooling group for families with various educational philosophies (traditional, eclectic, unschooling, classical, etc.), SHARE provides support to Milford, Wixom, and Commerce-area homeschoolers. Although not a Christian homeschool group, there are many Christian families within the group and SHARE does not endorse any activities that contradict Judeo-Christian beliefs. SHARE holds classes and one-time events at MUMC such as High School American Literature Writing Classes and Christmas Craft Day. Currently there are approximately 80 member families in the group with children ranging from preschool to high school age. For more information, contact Katy Weeks at firstname.lastname@example.org or 248-624-2337.
HA (Heroin Anonymous)
HA meets at MUMC every Sunday night from 8:30-9:30 p.m. This group is different from other sobriety groups held in the area because it is an OPEN meeting. Anyone can attend, regardless of the specific substance the individual struggles with. This group is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with one another. The primary purpose is to stay sober and help other addicts to achieve sobriety. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop suffering from addiction. The specific program that is followed is a twelve step program. This requires individuals to believe that there is a power greater than themselves that can restore them to sanity and encourages individuals to turn their will and life over to the care of God as they understand Him. It is through the strength of God that individuals in this program are successful.
On Our Own
On Our Own is a meeting of women (and men) who are single “not by choice”. Primarily a social group, On Our Own is for those who have moved on from the early grief stages of their lives. Group meetings are held at MUMC the fourth Monday of each month at 7 pm. Contact the church office during regular office hours for more details.
Milford Historical Society
The Milford Historical Society meets the third Thursday of each month at 6 pm.
Young People AA
The Milford Young People’s Meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous meets on Fridays at 9:30 pm. This is an AA meeting generally attended by younger members of the AA program, although everybody is welcome. The group is a great way for a younger person to strengthen their sobriety and get plugged into a fellowship of their peers. The group shares their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
Recovery provides support for sobriety and mental health concerns.
