DRCC’s Annual Events

Blessing of the Animals

Bring your animal companion to the front steps of the church to receive an individual blessing from Rev. Tim Haut. This is our way of celebrating God’s love for “All Creatures Great and Small” in honor of the birthday of St. Francis of Assisi (the patron saint of animals). We ask that dogs be leashed. (See October on the Church Calendar.)

Cemetery Tour

Sponsored by Deep River Historical Society

This annual walking tour of Fountain Hill Cemetery in Deep River takes place in October. Meet by the flagpole near the entrance, then stroll the lovely hillsides and paths, noting the old markers linking us to the saints and scoundrels of Deep River history. The tour is led by Rev. Tim Haut. 

Christmas Pageant

DRCC’s nativity pageant “Thy Light is Come” is presented by young people each year on Christmas Eve. Costumed shepherds, angels, and wise men join Mary and Joseph to sing carols and tell the Christmas story written in 1942 by a former minister of the church, the late Rev. Walter Euston, Sr. Contact: Director of Christian Education

Homecoming Sunday

DRCC observes our homecoming Sunday every year in October. Honorees are those who have been members of our church for 25 years or longer. Come and help to honor these longtime members as well as celebrating all members of our church!

Joyful Pumpkin Festival

Kids dress in their Halloween costumes. Everyone is invited to bring a Jack-o-Lantern or pumpkin to place at the front of the church during service. After worship, we have a pumpkin toss from the Church tower!

Las Posadas Celebration

Our annual Christmas Procession led by Mary, Joseph and their donkey in the style of the 400-year-old Mexican tradition. We process down Deep River’s Main Street singing Christmas carols and knocking on doors to seek shelter for Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem. Return to church for refreshments and the kids’ festive breaking of a piñata.

Lenten Potluck Suppers

Held on a few Wednesdays during Lent, these one-hour potluck suppers include a fellowship meal, worship, singing and a fun program for all ages. Bring your favorite main dish, side dish or salad for the buffet table. Please bring your own plate and utensils, if possible! Check the Church calendar for dates.
