The congregation of Deep River Community Church has always had a strong commitment to helping other people in need around the world. This commitment is fulfilled through our Missions Committee. Supporting missions is one part of our commitment to serving others, a commitment we live out through our worship services online and in church, a variety of social programs, and sharing the use of space in our two buildings. Members of the congregation also serve other agencies in the community as volunteers. We respect and welcome all guests and visitors and work to ensure everyone can feel safe with us as we offer a place where people can explore their beliefs and work on their questions for life.
The Missions Committee has 6-8 members and meets approximately 4-6 times per year. The Committee distributes approximately $38,000 to people who need support both locally and around the world.
The Committee continues to receive pleas for help in many places around the world and we as a congregation strive to do what we can for these people, while maintaining the needed support to ensure the continuation of our own church community. In 2020 we donated over $32,000 to the recipients shown below.
