Site Description

Deep River is located in the Connecticut River Valley, near the shoreline, and shares a school district with Chester and Essex. We are a community church drawing members from throughout the area. Our members work locally and in a triangle roughly connecting Hartford, New Haven, and New London. We are characterized by a diversity of age groups and an average Sunday attendance of over 200. Our church has two worship services on Sunday, with a choir, bell choir, and children's choir. We have an active Sunday school and youth program. Last year over 70 people participated in mission trips. A confirmation program is held each year (this year with 15 students). The senior minister has been here for 32 years.

Student Involvement

We encourage our seminary students to be involved in all facets of the life of the congregation. This includes participating in worship, preaching several times during the year, sharing in funerals and baptisms (as appropriate), assisting with youth worship and confirmation class, doing convalescent home services and visitations, working with youth groups and Sunday school, and involvement in general ministry.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

We have enjoyed nurturing those preparing for ministry and watching them continue to serve the wider church as pastors and chaplains. Over the years we have had students from Yale Divinity School and Andover Newton Theological School. They have given us the gifts of their talents, faith, and friendship as well, and we have maintained contact with our students over the years.
