Giving | The Dover Church
“It is more blessed to give than receive.” Not our words, but those of the Apostle Paul (Acts 20: 35).
In living the Christian life, we have found great blessings showered upon us in our life together as the Church. Moved to gratitude because of this overflowing abundance of love, we give back. As a Congregational Church within the United Church of Christ, The Dover Church is fully self-supporting.
Current Year Giving
Several times each year, we designate our Sunday collection to benefit a specific charity program.
At the center of worship in our Christian tradition is the sermon, a time to reflect on where God’s Word intersects, informs, enriches and directs our lives. In the sermon our in-house theologian, our pastor, seeks to help people see themselves and their lives in the light of God’s love and command to love others.
Daring to name the pain weighing down or the song exulting your heart can make all the difference. To pray your prayers for you is an answer to our prayers. "God bless you and keep you. God make his face to shine upon you and give you peace." Amen.
