Church Meetings Cancelled for Now
All church meetings and gatherings are cancelled, until further notice. Our Annual Meeting, scheduled for Sunday, March 22, has been postponed. The Annual Reports are ready, and you can pick one up in the church office, so you can have something to read during this time of social distancing!
The 50’s dinner and dance and the Board of Christian Service “Fun” Raiser at Ashleigh’s Garden, and April Blood Drive have been postponed, as well.
We are sorry to announce that the 12-step programs that meet here will no longer be able to hold their meetings here, until further notice.
Giving to the Church During this Epidemic
One of the great things about our church family is that we pull together during the tough times to keep DRCC (and each other) strong. One way you can help us get through the current pandemic is to fulfill your pledge with online or telephone donations to help the church pay its bills.
1. Call 800-675-7430 (this connects you to Vanco payment solutions)
2. Press 1 for Client Services (you will speak to a real person in the U.S.)!
3. Tell them you want to make a donation to First Congregational Church of Deep River and give them our zip code or I.D. number
• I.D. # is UCC-80490
• Zip code is 06417
• You may give from your checking or savings account or use a credit card.
1. Go to our church website: www.deeprivercc.org
2. Click on the green Give Now button (top, right corner)
3. Create your online profile and log in
4. Fill out the online donation form (you may give from your checking or saving account or use a credit card) and you're done!
You may also donate the “Old-Fashioned Way” and either mail your donation by snail mail, to DRCC, P.O. Box 246, Deep River, CT. 06417 or drop it off at the Church Office.

Tim will be here to offer a special message each Sunday which will be livestreamed at 10:00 a.m. each week on our church. Go to our church website: http://www.deeprivercc.org.
