BODY NEWS

Annual Business Meeting

As we prepare for our annual church business meeting on Sun., Jan. 19, 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. The church agreed to limit the number of board members to 5 instead of 6 this year as we seek to re-establish the policy of  electing 2 new board members per year. This year we have 1 member (Keith Miller) 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 5 board members this year. 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 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. TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO SUBMIT NOMINATIONS!

 

Christmas Benevolence

If you would like to contribute to our benevolence fund in order to supply items to families for Christmas, please use the envelopes provided in the pew racks and indicate “benevolence”. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

 

Christmas Card Mailboxes

The Christmas mailboxes are up and awaiting Christmas cards!  If you would like to share Christmas cards with others in our church family, please take a name list from the table in the foyer and match up the numbers with the names.  (Please note that names and numbers have changed from last year)

 

Special Thank You!
