Please Support our Red Cross Blood Drive Next Friday—May 27th



The Board of Christian Service is sponsoring a Red Cross Blood Drive here next Friday, May 27, from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The need for blood is crucial.

Please call 1-800-RED-CROSS today to make your appointment, or you can get the FREE Red Cross Blood Donor App! Text “BLOODAPP” to 90999 or download it from the App Store!


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.  .

1. Masks are no longer required .
2. Seating in every pew.
3. Communion is being served by intinction.  The self-serve communion cups are available for those who don't feel comfortable coming forward.

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.:
