High School Youth Group Service Trip | The Dover Church
High School Youth Group Service Trip
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, plans for a 2021 MATE Trip have been put on hold. We hope to be able to offer an immersive service opportunity for our youth group in the summer of 2021, and will communicate with our families as soon as we have a firmer sense of what will be possible. Thank you for your patience!
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.

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.
