Women’s Christmas Dinner
This year’s dinner will be held here at the church. We will have it catered by Olive Garden. We are asking for a $5.00 donation to cover the cost of the food. Please bring a Christmas Stocking filled with at least $10.00 worth of items for our gift exchange. If the cost is a hardship, please see Anna. We want every lady to attend our celebration of the birth of our savior! Please sign up in the upper foyer.
Our current Women of Purpose Committee is: Anna Bender, Diane Crumrine, Deborah Dobbins, Lee Jones & Judy Landis!
Men’s Christmas Dinner
The men will be going to Outback on Thursday, Dec 3 for an evening of good fellowship, conversation and for celebrating our savior’s birth! We’d love all the men to be a part of that night. Please sign up in the lower foyer.

New Hope Christmas Gifts
Thanks to everyone who donated towards our Christmas Project this year. There is still time to drop of any Christmas gifts for New Hope Ministries. Deadline for donations is Nov 30. We are taking them to New Hope on Monday, Dec 1.
We have had some requests to order some new Dover Assembly hoodies. If you would like one, please sign up in the lower foyer. Price is $17.95 each (2XL & 3XL is $3.50 additional). Zipper hoodies are $22.95 (2XL & 3XL is $4.50 additional).
Our attic has once again become full of items that we no longer need. We need to clean and remove all the unnecessary items so that we are able to find and use the necessary items. If you are able to give up a few hours, please see Pastor Jeff.
If you would like one of our old 4×8 tables that we used to use downstairs, please see Pastor Jeff. We have replaced all of them with the lighter white plastic tables. They are in great shape and we don’t want them to just waste away.
Annual Business Meeting
As we prepare for our annual church business meeting on Sun., Jan. 17, one of the items we will be covering is voting for Deacon Board members. The process at Dover Assembly for the election of our Deacon members is to encourage our voting members to submit names of other voting members whom they prayerfully feel would best serve our church and our Lord, Jesus Christ. We have reached the last year of our modified election process.
This year we have 1 member (Gil Tunney) who has reached the limit of (2) 3 year terms and must sit out for one year. Therefore we will need to elect 2 new members to bring our total to 6 board members this year (the number required by our By Laws which completes the modified process).
There are nominating forms at the Information Center. Please write the names of those who you would like to nominate, sign it and place them in the ballot box. We will only consider names of nominees from this ballot box. If you do not put the signed ballot in this secured box, the ballot will not be valid for consideration. Our nominating committee will review all nominees to determine if all constitutional requirements are met by that candidate.
The eligible nominees will be contacted and asked to pray over acceptance or rejection of the nomination. The names of those who accept the nomination are then presented to the church body three (3) weeks prior to the annual business meeting. Nomination ballots will be accepted until Sunday, Dec 6.
We would like to bless some of our families this Thanksgiving and Christmas season. If you would like to donate to our church’s benevolence fund, please use the envelopes in the chair pocket in front of you, mark “benevolence” on it and place it in the offering plates near the exit doors.
