We are so glad you have chosen to attend Dover Assembly this morning. It is not by accident that you are here. We believe that God has allowed you to be here so that you might receive all that He has for you. We pray you are blessed as you allow the Lord to work in your life.

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! Our own Judy Landis will be sharing a Christmas message. Please sign up in the upper foyer.
New Hope Christmas Gifts
A great big thank you to everyone who donated to New Hope Ministries Christmas gift drive. Pastor’s van is loaded to the gills with all the gifts and will be delivered tomorrow to Brookside Park. I’m sure many families will be blessed by your generosity!
We have placed the mailboxes in the lower foyer. We have used them in the past for anyone wanting to pass out Christmas cards or gifts without the added expense of postage. There is a numbered sheet listing all the members of our church. Please note that the numbers have changed slightly from last year. We have also placed next year’s tithing envelopes in the boxes for your convenience. If you did not receive a box and would like to, please see Pastor Jeff.
We would like to bless some of our families this 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.
Membership & Water Baptism
If you would like to become a voting member of Dover Assembly, we will be having a new member’s class after the first of the year. Please complete the new member’s form found at the Information Center, place it in Pastor Jeff’s door and we will contact you when the class date has been set.
If you would like to be water baptized, please complete the form found at the Information Center, place it in Pastor Jeff’s door and we will contact you with the date and time of the class and the baptism date.
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 TODAY!
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).
To Brad, Darlene, Gil, Jayden, Katie and Lee for all the beautiful Christmas decorations. It took a lot of work to make the church look this nice and we appreciate all of you!
