Would you like to get involved at Deep River Friends Meeting? Are you looking for a place to call home? Whatever you’re looking for, we have opportunities for you to get involved. Learn more about our ministry opportunities below.
If you’d like to know more about these opportunities, please contact Pastor Scott Wagoner.
Quaker Men meet the third Sunday of each month except during the summer. Quaker Men does two main projects each year – the Spring BBQ, which is held the second weekend of March and the Fall BBQ, which is held the second weekend in October. Quaker Men is often called upon to help in other projects around the meeting. Some of our men have been on Friends Disaster Relief trips to help families who have had damage from a disaster such as a hurricane, fire or tornado.
Quaker Men make up a good portion of the morning prayer group that meets at Penny’s Restaurant Wednesdays at 7 a.m.
Quaker Women meet once each month, on the first Thursday of the month. Ladies of the meeting are encouraged to mee at 7 p.m. for a program to discuss items that need to be addressed among the community. Items include members, showers for babies or marriages and the making of chicken pies. They also help with several ministries such as sending children to Quaker Lake Camp. It is a meaningful fellowship that accomplishes much.
We have ministry opportunities for people of all ages, including elementary, middle, high school and college-aged students. Student Ministries at Deep River includes Deep River Elementary Age Ministry (DREAM), Deep River Young People (DRYP) and College Age Deep River Experience (CADRE). Our prayer and plan is that, while these are three distinct groups in our meeting, that they will each feel connected to each other and the larger meeting and find their place in the Deep River family. We worship, serve, play and pray together in our various groups and as a whole.

Music & Choir
The Deep River Friends choir often sings for special music during meeting for worship. They also provide special concerts and programs during special times of the year such as Christmas and Easter. Please contact Mark Kirkman for more information about Music & Choir.
“Digging Deeper” is a weekly book study that is open to anyone in the meeting. Typically the group meets between the months of September and May on Sunday evenings. A typical format is to discuss and dialogue the book that the group is reading. Often the books cover areas of spirituality, spiritual growth, and personal growth. Participants in the group purchase their own books. Please contact Pastor Scott Wagoner about the Digging Deeper book study.
Pilgrims of the Heart
“Pilgrims of the Heart” is a spiritual formation group led by Pastor Scott Wagoner. The group will meet periodically in the coming months. The focus will be on spiritual growth and learning new spiritual practices.
Deep River is involved in a number of outreach experiences. The first Saturday of each month, we serve lunch at the Open Door Homeless Shelter in High Point, NC. The second Tuesday of each month, a meal is provided for Leslie’s House, a women’s homeless shelter in High Point. Many of our members/attenders are also involved in outreach experiences such as Special Olympics, Relay for Life, and Habitat for Humanity. Our Missions and Outreach Committee sponsors experiences as well as many of them simply being announced through newsletter and worship.
