Welcome to Dover Assembly!

Week of Prayer
The Assemblies of God sets aside the first full week of January as the “week of prayer”. Traditionally, we gather in the church for a time of corporate prayer. However, in light of the COVID situation, we are asking each family to spend time at home and pray not only for the items on the insert, but for needs that our church family is experiencing. The church will be open for anyone wishing to come and go and spend time in prayer as well. God didn’t stop being God because of the pandemic. He still answers prayer!
Annual Business Meeting
As we prepare for our annual church business meeting on Sunday, Jan. 17, we ask that you pray for the election of our new deacon board members. The following have been nominated and have accepted the nomination to run for our 2 open positions.
- Paul Jones
- Bill Myers
- Phil Stough

Please remember to be faithful in the giving of your tithes and offerings during this time of year. As the economy continues to shift and change, our God does not. He is our provider and will always be faithful in providing our needs if we are faithful in our obedience to Him. Also, to be sure that your giving is recorded in 2020, it needs to be received by Dec. 31. Thank you for your faithfulness!!
In this time of COVID, we wanted to keep everyone updated on what has been outlined by the CDC in response to the COVID virus for those who test positive.
FROM THE CDC: *Once an individual has tested positive for Covid, the return-to-work criteria are as follows:
(we are using this same guideline for return-to-church activities as it is the right thing to do)
- Must be fever-free 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications)
- Respiratory and other symptoms have improved
- It has been at least ten (10) days from the onset of symptoms.
Please let’s all do our part; if sick, stay home; if fevered, stay home and contact your healthcare provider for his/her advice.
We will get through this together!
