Doing Ministries in New Ways

We are not closed. We are doing ministries and mission in new ways. You will find everything you need to know about the ongoing ministries of the church on this page.

Current Sunday Information

The Dover Church
Jesus teaches us that “whatever we ask in His name, God will grant us.” Really? It doesn’t seem to be working in the big things. Sure, individuals we pray for have recovered, which is an enormous blessing. But what about the big picture? Is there any tangible use to our prayers over such a long haul? This Sunday we will be diving into these very questions, thinking of what “praying in Jesus’ name” might really mean and how both our prayers and what we see happening as we pray day after day might be shaping us spiritually, dispositionally, and vocationally for the other side.
