The mission of Deerfield Community Church is to experience, share, and grow in God’s life-giving love. Inspired by the Holy Scriptures, we come together in the name of Jesus Christ to worship, pray, learn, and serve.
Who we are
We have a strong and energetic congregation filled with members who are open to new ideas while balancing the traditional aspects of our New England heritage. We are willing to spend our money to maintain the traditional look of our physical structure as well as helping that physical structure stay relevant with the addition of an up-to-date sound system, projection system, camera for our YouTube channel, and lighting. We enjoy following lectionary while also straying from that lectionary for exciting series that help us in our faith journey. We realize that churches must evolve in order to stay relevant in today’s world. We recently voted to become an Open and Affirming church after a year of many discussions, surveys, and meetings. We didn’t want to just say we are an ONA church; we wanted to embody the welcoming and accepting nature our members and friends deserve. Therefore, many congregation members attended panel discussions to better understand the needs and wants of our LGBTQ neighbors. One of our strengths is our willingness to look for balance and stay relevant in today’s everchanging landscape
