NEW ADULT BIBLE STUDY
The adults have begun studying the book “Soul Detox-Clean Living in a Contaminated World” as our Wednesday night lesson. As the title suggests, we will delve into topics such as overcoming toxic emotions and behaviors and we will discover how God’s transforming power can take us to clean, pure and focused living.

EASTER EGG HUNT
Our annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held on Palm Sunday, April 9th, following the morning service. We are in need of plastic eggs and smaller candy to place in the eggs. There is a tub in the Upper Foyer for all donations. We appreciate your support for our children!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Our VBS is scheduled July 10-14 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Our goal this year is to reach as many children in our community as possible. The theme for 2017 is “Maker Fun Factory”. In order for this to be a success we will need your help! There are several sign up sheets listing all the areas of our need in the lower foyer. Once you sign up, our leadership team will be in contact with you as we plan for this tremendous outreach!

YARD SALE
Please take the enclosed flyer and give it to someone you know who would love to come. There are also additional flyers on the Women’s table. We are encouraging you take some and distribute them to stores and friends. We want to get the word out and every little bit helps. Thank you for your support! Remember, we begin taking donations on April 2.

Be careful how you live. You may be the only Bible some people ever read. ~William J. Toms

ACTS 2 CHURCH PILOT SURVEY
The Assemblies of God leadership has chosen Dover Assembly and 66 other A/G churches in the U.S. to participate in an on-line survey. The survey can be taken anytime between March 26 and April 9. The survey will be approximately 30 minutes in length and is anonymous. We want to fully represent Dover Assembly as much as possible. Therefore, we are encouraging everyone to participate. If you do not have a computer to complete the survey, the church computers will be available to you when you are able. Help in completing the survey will also be available if you desire.

Save the date and invite someone to join us for Easter!

To set your heart on something means it’s all you want or think about.

This verse tells us that a call is first a desire you have. Something you want to do. Something that you just can’t shake off.
The word Overseer is the same Greek word as Bishop and it indicates overseeing the work of the church.

Bishop, Elder and Pastor are all synonymous terms.

It indicates the character of the work to be undertaken.

Vine’s dictionary says that these positions are “according to the divine will and appointment.”
Warren Wiersbe says about 1 Timothy 3:1:

“To become an elder/bishop/pastor was a serious decision, one not to be treated lightly.”
God continues to call men and women to further the gospel.

The sign of a healthy church is one where God calls people from within its ranks to minister.

The larger the foundation of such leaders, the more effective God’s work can be.

Today we get to honor God, see God’s provision and install 2 such men...
Join us in congratulating Keith Miller & Luis Nunez as their receive their Commissioned Minister credentials for Dover Assembly today!

Thank you for joining us!
