Dover is very excited to welcome our new senior pastor, the Reverend Melinda "Mindy" Quellhorst on Sunday, April 16, 2023!
On Sunday, January 29th, our own Michael DiLauro, a six-time Emmy award-winning producer, screened his documentary Prisoners Among Us: Italian American Identity & World War II for over 75 people in Thomas Hall. The most common response at the end of the 90-minute documentary was “I had no idea this happened.” While many of us are painfully aware of social injustice in our society, particularly based on race, the documentary made clear the mistreatment of immigrants, and even those born in the US, who face prejudice, hate and misunderstanding based on their ethnicity--their nationality, heritage, religion, language. . .even their dress and customs.
Dover Congregational United Church of Christ stands with our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. Our congregation has donated over $10,000 to Ukraine relief efforts through Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, and the UCC Hope project.

You're invited to join us for a mission trip April 23-29, 2023 at Back Bay Mission in Biloxi, Mississippi. If you've never gone on a mission trip before please consider it. It's a life changing experience. Lots of hard work but lots of fun! You'll truly be glad to experience it. Back Bay Mission is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. It was started to help the children of immigrant fishermen and has now grown to include a food pantry, soup kitchen, homeless shelter and construction and rehab projects. Check out all the amazing work they do in the video link below.
