Please contact the pastor for this conversation. The session approves all baptisms, and it is our expectation that families whose children are baptized here are or will become members at the Presbyterian Church of Dover.
The Church School schedule loosely follows the public school schedule [September to June] and begins at 9:45 am.
Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month either by intinction or by sharing in the pews. We also celebrate communion on Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday.
Normally the youth are of high school age.
At the end of each service people gather for a while to socialize. Normally, a fellowship time takes place on the second Sunday of each month, unless there is a special celebration. Snacks and beverages are served and there is opportunity to talk to members.

Our name comes from the Greek word, “presbyteros,” which means “elder,” reflecting the fact that our congregations are governed by elected and ordained elders. We trace our faith ancestry to the teachings of the Reformed family of protestant churches, especially as developed by John Calvin (Switzerland) and John Knox (Scotland). Our primary theological identification is our belief that God’s grace is freely given through God’s great love for us (not earned by our works), and our response is our gratitude, expressed in service to others.
During the normal school year, church school begins at 9:45 a.m. and worship begins at 10:55a.m. For the summer season, a hymn sing begins at 9:40 a.m. and worship begins at 9:55 a.m.
A special Time for Young Christians takes place during the worship service after which small children may adjourn to Children's Church every Sunday except when communion is celebrated.
