Church Sounds and Looks Much Better

Here are a couple of photos showing the changes in the sanctuary. The (Before) photo is from earlier in the year showing the BIG speaker over the pastor's head. The (After) photo is from the January 3rd service at Dover Baptist Church with our new sound system installed. It sounded great and Bro.

Dover's Youth Girls Light the 3rd Advent Candle

On Sunday morning, December 13, 2020, our youth group girls read scripture and then lit the Advent Candle. It is so nice that the youth are coming back to church and helping serve The Lord.
