We are also going to Providence Place on Wednesday Dec 12. We will meet at church at 6:30 and take the church van over.

Annual Business Meeting
As we prepare for our annual church business meeting on Sun., Jan. 20, one of the items we will be covering is voting for Deacon Board members. The process at Dover Assembly for the election of our Deacon members is to encourage our voting members to submit names of other voting members whom they prayerfully feel would best serve our church and our Lord, Jesus Christ.
The church agreed to limit the number of board members to 4 instead of 6 this year as we seek to re-establish the policy of electing 2 new board members per year.
This year we have 4 members who have reached the limit of (2) 3 year terms and must sit out for one year. Those members are Gil Tunney, Mark Crumrine, Paul Jones and Keith Housseal. Gil has agreed to fulfill the unexpired term of Sherwin Villagracia. Therefore we will need to elect 2 new members.
There are nominating forms at the Information Center. Please write the names of those who you would like to nominate, sign it and place them in the ballot box. We will only consider names of nominees from this ballot box. If you do not put the ballot in this secured box, the ballot will not be valid for consideration. Our nominating committee will review all nominees to determine if all constitutional requirements are met by that candidate.
The eligible nominees will be contacted and asked to pray over acceptance or rejection of the nomination. The names of those who accept the nomination are then presented to the church body three (3) weeks prior to the annual business meeting. Nomination ballots will be accepted until Sunday, Dec 9.
We have placed the mailboxes in the lower foyer to distribute any Christmas cards. Please take a mailbox number list as some numbers have changed.
In order to best serve you and keep our records up to date and correct, we encourage the use of numbered envelopes. We have placed next years envelopes in each of your slots in the Christmas card mailbox in the lower foyer. Please be sure to check your box before you leave today. Thank you for your faithfulness in giving!
