What can I expect?

How long is our service?

On a typical Sunday, our service here at Dover Hill is about 75 minutes in length. Though at times can be shorter or just a tab bit longer.

While our services here at Dover Hill are still more traditional, we do begin with a mix of Contemporary music and Traditional hymns. The mix of these two is always different from Sunday to Sunday, depending on the Music leaders for that Service. During this time of worship, lyrics are projected for your convenience. Though if you so choose, there are hymnals available to use as well.

After worship there is a time to give praises, request prayer, pray together, a time of reflection, and give testimonies.

Service then moves on to a time to give back to the Lord. If you so choose though, we do offer online giving and a mailing option, if that would be a more comfortable way to give. After the Offering the Kids are dismissed to participate in the "Kids March for Missions" and go to the Nursery, Little Gifts class, or to Junior Church.

The service ends with an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What are we like?

Here at Dover Hill, we like it to be relaxed and casual, so no need to worry about being in your Sunday Best, unless your Sunday Best is how you roll, that's fine too; otherwise just come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest and friend. 

What about my Kids?

Our Sunday School hour offers classes for all ages.

During the Service we offer 3 options for your kids:

  • Nursery - 0 to 2 years of age
  • Little Gifts - 3 years of age to kindergarten
  • Junior Church - 1st to 6th grade
