Here is the 2020 DRCC Annual Report.


Opening the Sanctuary

The Trustees and Council have agreed to continue to open our Sanctuary for Sunday, 10:00 a.m. Worship Services.  The safety and health of the congregation are still the guiding principles for developing the plan to further open for worship.
We are continuing to relax the restrictions mandated by the pandemic.  You will be able to attend the service in person without calling the office to reserve a place, and you will also be able to seat yourself in the sanctuary. .
Please adhere to the following guidelines:
2. Seating in every pew.
3. Communion is still self-serve.

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.
Both are easy ways to help our church. And if you need help with this at any point, contact our church treasurer, Dayle Larson, at 860-575-9721 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.:
