Mission

Missions Committee

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.

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. One initiative of the Missions Committee is our annual Ten Thousand Villages International Craft Sale.  This is a once-a-year event, held under the auspices of the Ten Thousand Villages organization of the Mennonite Central Committee.  We typically raise about $ 7000 for the Ottawa Ten Thousand Villages, most of which goes to the artisans who make the crafts for our enjoyment, while 10 % supports our own mission initiatives.

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.
