Thanks for visiting First Moravian Church of Dover on the web. We realize the internet is a great way to visit and get to know a church without actually stepping through its' doors.

Two Kickoff Events this Fall
by Pastor John
The NFL may have kicked off sooner but not with the same eternal blessings at stake as Dover First Moravian Church. Come and join us for our 173rd year of teaching, growing, and dwelling in the word of the Lord of people of ALL ages.
Sunday, Sept. 13, at 9:30 a.m.
Congregational Rally Day
We will start our 2015 Sunday School season with the new Congregational Rally Day and potluck meal. The congregational rally will begin in the sanctuary of the church at 9:30 a.m. with an all church family worship service. On that day we will gather for worship, delightful music, history, a baptism, a cup of covenant and blessing all wrapped up into one wonderful service. That Sunday we lift up our highest Christian values. We embrace in the life of the congregational ties that bind us together.
After the worship service you are invited to an old-fashioned pot luck lunch. The meal will be in the social hall. Table service and beverages will be provided by the Christian Education Committee.
Sunday, Sept. 20, at 10:30 a.m.: BYOB Service
Bring Your Own Bible (BYOB) on Sunday, September 20, to either the 8 or 10:30 service. This is when we go back to two services. Sue Henriksen has designed a service and program that invites us to bring our favorite Bible to worship. During and after the service we can share the stories of the Bible in our lives, and why we still find it important to us. At the 10:30 service, our 2nd graders will receive their Bibles from the church family.
Join me for these two fine services of grace and loving investment in the future.
