Missions Committee

The congregation of Deep River Community Church has always had a strong commitment to helping other people in need around the world.  This commitment is fulfilled through our Missions Committee.

The Missions Committee has 6-8 members and meets approximately 4-6  times per year.   The Committee distributes approximately $42,000 to people who need support both locally and around the world. One initiative of the Missions

Committee is our annual Ten Thousand Villages International Craft Sale.  This is a once-a-year event, held under the auspices of the Ten Thousand Villages organization of the Mennonite Central Committee.  We typically raise about $ 7000 for the Ottawa Ten Thousand Villages, most of which goes to the artisans who make the crafts for our enjoyment, while about 10% is sent to the Stephen Lewis Foundation through the Deep River Grannies,  to help those grannies in Africa supporting children with AIDS.

The Committee continues to receive pleas for help in many places around the world and we as a congregation strive to do what we can for these people, while maintaining the needed support to ensure the continuation of our own church community.

Supported Missions
