High School Youth Group Service Trip | The Dover Church
High School Youth Group Service Trip
Come join us helping our neighbors!
From June 21 to June 27, 2020, The Dover Church Youth Group will again take it’s ministry of service to Western Maine. Building upon our 2019 Mission to the Eastward service trip to Farmington, ME, and our past experience with Appalachian Service Project in West Virginia, we will bring our home repair skills back to MATE…”reaching the last house on the last road” (www.missionattheeastward.org).
This organization is part of the Presbyterian Church and has been serving Mainers since 1954. We will again work with the North Parish Housing Ministry (northparishhousingministry.weebly.com), soon to be renamed the MATE Housing Ministry, which helps people in the Farmington area stay in their homes who without our help would not be able to. Last year our projects included roofing, building porches and ramps, painting and otherwise doing the sorts of projects that we have done in years past for ASP.
If you are interested in finding out more about our service trip, please call the church at 508-785-0957, or email Max Olmstead. You do not need to be a member of The Dover Church to join in this life enriching experience.
We ask that you reserve your spot with a $250 non-refundable deposit.
Once you have reserved your spot with your deposit, complete the MATE paperwork at the link below and return it to The Dover Church.
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.
We know how daunting it can be to come to a new church for the first time. All of us had a first time and we’re glad we dared. We hope you’ll be glad too. Here’s some of what you might like to know before walking up the front stairs.
