High School Youth Group Service Trip

Come join us helping our neighbors!

During the last full week of June, The Dover Church Youth Group takes it’s ministry of service to Western Maine. Building upon our past Mission to the Eastward (MATE) service trips 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 Kayla McKinsey. You do not need to be a member of The Dover Church to join in this life enriching experience.

Rev. Dr. Max Olmstead preaching

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.

At the center of the Christian life is a commitment to justice in the service of the hungry, poor, sick and homeless. Each of us have our unique calling. Our Justice and Service Ministries are always evolving to match our gifts with the needs of our neighbors.
