Please plug in to our Facebook page as well as this website for the most up-to-date information. 

We are thankful for your patience as we adapt and improve our online presence! We are optimistic and trusting God to guide us!

What to expect


There will only be one English service until further notice. 
The church doors will open at 8:30 for the German service and 10:30 am for the English service.

• Please respect others and social distance when getting in and out of your vehicles.
• Please enter through the main doors under the car port. Ushers and greeters will be there to open doors for you. 
• We will try our best to get people into the building as quickly as possible but you may have to wait in a line outside while maintaining social distancing.
• When you enter you are asked not to loiter in the foyer but to move into the gym where ushers will assist you in finding a seat. NOTE: you will be asked to sit in specific seats, not your preferred seating in order to facilitate safety.
• Once in your seats we ask that you remain in your seats.
• When the service is over the ushers will clear the sanctuary row by row and we ask that you wait your turn to exit.
• The back gym doors that face the east parking lot will be opened at the end of the service to be used as an exit.
• The women’s washroom will be limited to three women and the men’s to one man. Please respect social distancing.

Your safety is important to us and if we all work collectively together we can ensure the safe operation. Please make sure that you adhere to the instructions of our volunteers. Social distancing is required in all areas of Deer Run Church. 
The congregation is only to access the main gym and washrooms. The café, lending library etc. meeting rooms and all other areas are closed at this time. They nursery is open to nursing moms only. 
Offering buckets will be at the back doors to facilitate the giving of cash and cheques.

We recommend the wearing of masks while in the building and while out in the parking lot. We are doing our absolute best to make sure we all have a great worship experience while keeping everyone safe. 


If you have any questions, please contact someone on the BOE, call the office at 519-326-9734 or email info@deerrun.church.
