Our Purpose and Mission
Our purpose and vision at DCC is simple:
We FOLLOW the teachings of Jesus as found in the Bible.
We GROW together as disciples through hearing God's word.
We SERVE each other and our community here in the NEK.
We believe in God the Father, God our savior Jesus Christ, and God our counselor the Holy Spirit. We believe it is vital to walk together as followers of Jesus Christ; to grow together by coming together for worship services and the other ministries of this church. We love to serve one another by praying for one another. We believe it is essential to learn from the Bible. We covenant with the Lord and with one another, and bind ourselves in the presence of God to live to bring honor to our Lord Jesus Christ, as taught in the Bible. We do this for the glory of God, for our mutual growth, and for the good of our fellow brothers and sisters, through the enabling grace and power of Jesus Christ.

First known as the Congregational Society of Derby (1807-1925), this Congregational Church had its beginning in 1807 for the sharing of the Gospel and the strengthening of followers of Jesus Christ. Between 1816 and 1844 the Congregational Society of Derby planted four other Congregational Societies: Stainstead, Quebec; Morgan, Vermont; Holland, Vermont; West Charleston, Vermont.
The official name of this church, formerly known as the Congregational Society of Derby (1807-1925), the Federated Church of Derby (1925-1966), and the United Church of Derby (1966-2013), is now known as the Derby Community Church or DCC. This name is fitting because we desire to be a church that cares for the community.
DCC enjoys a mix of traditional and contemporary worship styles with sermons that are relevant to everyday life. Whether you are a believer in Jesus or just interested in checking us out, we'd love to have you. It is our joy to live and serve in the Derby area and we hope to see you soon.
