On January 26, 2020, the members of the Deerfield Community Church voted overwhelmingly to approve the following Open and Affirming covenant: We, the members of Deerfield Community Church, United Church of Christ, believe that all people are created in God’s image and therefore are loved, valued, and blessed by God. We welcome all who seek to follow or understand Jesus Christ. This community of faith is an Open and Affirming congregation which welcomes persons of all races, ethnic backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, physical or mental abilities, family structures and marital status, faiths, and socio-economic background. All persons are invited to fully share and participate in the membership, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, blessings and joys of our church family. Trusting in God’s grace and with guidance from the Holy Spirit, we are committed to the on- going work of inclusivity and discovering ways to live out our support and respect for all people as God’s beloved children.

Join us for online worship

As you know, the COVID-19 virus crisis has escalated rapidly. In parallel, there have been multiple conversations at DCC about how we can best respond and serve. The Support Team has made several decisions about how we can be most deeply faithful in this time.

As a faith community and a public resource, it is imperative that we do what we can to slow and reduce the spread of COVID-19. With this in mind,  we have moved all of our services and meetings online.  We will reassess as needed and appropriate.

We are excited to be creating  worship together online (or by phone) via Zoom on Sunday mornings at 9 am, as usual. The service will also be posted for simple viewing on our YouTube page by later Sunday afternoon. Instructions for both of these methods is included below.

If you already make video calls (Skype, Facetime) or if you have a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a camera, you have everything you need! Just click the link associated with the event you are attending and download the application Zoom if prompted to do so. If you don’t have a camera on your computer, you may be able to see but not be seen.

If you don’t have any of the devices above, you can join us by calling in with a phone and entering the meeting number. It will be like joining a conference call if that is a familiar experience.

After worship is over, a video recording of our time together will be available to watch if you were unable to join in. Find it by going to YouTube and searching for our church’s channel.

Sunday morning worship will start around 9:00, but you can log in to the meeting starting at 8:55 or so to work out any issues. If possible, have a candle nearby to light (battery or flame) during worship.

Patience, Flexibility and Prayer


This is a new experience. No doubt there will be bumps along the way, and lots for us to learn. Thank you for your understanding as we find new ways to stay connected with each other and in God’s Spirit. Thank you for holding each other and all of DCC in your prayers!

At Deerfield Community Church, our Sunday morning services and special seasonal offerings, as well as life-cycle ceremonies such as weddings and memorial services, are all in the context of Christian worship.



Learning about Christianity and the spiritual path is a lifelong process. Naturally, understanding of scripture evolves as one matures, so that reading the same text at age 20 reveals new treasures at age 30, 40, 50, and so on.



Deerfield Community Church’s mission statement affirms that “we come together in the name of Jesus Christ to worship, pray, learn, and serve.” In so many ways, these four actions are entwined.



The Rev. Lisa Stedman is pleased to be serving the Deerfield Community Church, UCC in Deerfield NH as Interim Pastor, as of Jan. 28, 2019
