Welcome to Dover Assembly!

When you’re looking for a church, it can be a little intimidating. You start asking yourself a lot of questions: How will I find my way around? Will the people be unfriendly? Will they be TOO friendly? What should I wear? Is there anything available for my kids? Will the message relate to me?

We’ve been there. And we get it. And if you’re looking for a church, we think you should check out Dover Assembly of God in Dover, PA.

Here is an idea of what to expect when you visit.

Getting Ready

Church clothes can mean so many things. . .
We want you to be comfortable as you worship. For some of us, that means coming casual, “as you are” in jeans and a tee shirt. For others, it means dressing in our “Sunday Best”. Whatever your preference, you’ll fit right in at Dover Assembly.

Finding the Place

We’re located right on Route 74 (Carlisle Rd) in Dover, just ½ mile north of the Dover Square. Coming from Route 30, follow Route 74 north for about 5 miles. We are on the left, on the corner of Harmony Grove Rd.


We have plenty of space.

Service Times

We meet at 9:30 am for Sunday School and 10:30 am for our worship services. Wednesdays are “Family Night” and begin at 6:30 pm. A light meal is served each week around 5:30 pm before the Wednesday evening service.

Have Kids?

We have classes for all ages of Sunday School and Wednesday Family Night. Children 5 and over are welcome to join our R.O.C.K Kids Ministries at 10:30AM so they can participate in Kids worship and Kids church. We also have several nurseries, according to your child’s age.


We start the service with a few worship songs. We worship to a mix of contemporary worship songs and contemporary style hymns.

The Offering

We receive an offering during the service. It’s just another way to worship . . . really! Do not be afraid of the offering plates, we are just glad you came out to worship with us. No pressures, give if you can, don’t if you’re not so inclined.  We’re seriously just happy to have you with us.

The Message

Pastor Jeff Bender, our lead pastor, usually preaches on Sundays. Occasionally, Keith Miller, our commissioned pastor, or others will preach. They always uses the Bible as the source for the message and we believe the Bible is relevant to our lives today.
