Welcome to The Dover Church!

An Open and Affirming Congregation in the United Church of Christ!

Welcoming Community of

Faith and Service Since 1762


No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!


Join us for Sunday worship at 10:00 am

Beloved: As we enter into this holy season of Lent, we prepare to do that hard work of looking inward and discerning with God how we can better live out our faith in the world. We take time, these next 40 days, to contemplate our walk with God thus far and look forward at what our continued journey with God may hold. We will begin this 40 day period of inward looking discernment by talking about the ways we experience temptation in our lives and how we address the evils we come face to face with in this life.


This Sunday, February 14th at 10:00 am, we will observe "Ash Sunday". We will receive ashes with the sign of the cross and hear the words "Remember, mortal, that you are dust and to dust you shall return. But for today you live. So go in the peace of Christ." - In peace, Carrie
