Covid-19 Worship Safety

Protocol Update

Our Main Auditorium has returned to full seating setup. In addition, masks will no longer be required. This is in keeping with the announcements made by the CDC and Governor Cooper concerning masks, social distancing, and gathering sizes. As always, use your own judgment concerning whether you should continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

if you have any concerns, are over 65, or have an underlying health condition that makes you more vulnerable to the virus, the Shepherds fully understand if you wish to worship from your home with our online worship. You will remain a valued member of the Deep River Family.

We continue to pray that the day will soon come that we will all be reunited under one roof in the worship and praise of God and His Son, Christ Jesus.

As a reminder, should you need assistance during this time of restricted social contact, please phone the building 336-454-3011 and leave a message in the general mailbox, or email us at
