Little Lighthouses Children's Ministry - We have a nursery for babies and toddlers 0 to 2 years old and a children's church for pre-k through 5th graders. This is located across the hall in suite #204.
Revolution Youth Ministry - Currently this is on hold, but we are looking to start it up again in the near future. We are looking and praying for an anointed youth pastor. In the meantime, we encourage families that have youth to bring their youth to another biblical and God-honoring youth group in the local area.
Connect Groups – Connect groups are awesome opportunities for people to truly connect with one another and God in people’s homes throughout the week. Community and friendships are built in these relaxed and intimate small group environments. At connect groups we connect with God and one another through Bible teaching and discussion, testimony, prayer, fellowship, and worship. There are different connect groups offered throughout the three semesters of the year (each semester lasts approximately three months with a month break between each one) including anything from men's groups to womens groups, "seeker" groups designed for the unbeliever, groups centered around a paticular hobby or activity, groups for those struggling with addictions, groups centered around marriages, groups centered around young adults or youth, groups centered around a particular book of the Bible, groups centered around a particular Christian book, groups centered around the sermons preached on the Sunday morning services, etc. Everyone is invited and encouraged to be part of these life changing groups, although there is no childcare. The WINTER SEMESTER just started up on Monday January 14th and there are 2 connect groups that last for a total of 10 weeks. One meets on Monday nights at 6:30 PM at the church. The Christian book being discussed is titled "Letters From A Skeptic" by Gregory Boyd. This book is written for the nonbeliever and skeptic who has a lot of questions about God and Christianity such as "how is God good in the midst of all the suffering and evil in the world?" and other such questions a skeptic might have are answered in this book. But the book is also for the Christian who wants to know why he believes what he believes intellectually. Another connect group meets on Thursday nights at 6:30 PM at Sheila Hall's house of Lowell St. in Rochester NH. At this group, the Christian book titled "Secrets to Exceptional Living: Transforming Your Life Through the Fruit of the Spirit" by Joyce Meyer. The book is written to help Christians to walk and be led by the Holy Spirit so that their lives will produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23.
Encounter Services - From time to time on Sunday mornings or during the week, a special service is held to encounter God's manifest presence. At these services our #1 main priority is to encounter God and His manifest presence in a powerful and life changing way! Therefore, we set up the service in such a way that gives the most freedom for the Holy Spirit to move powerfully as He chooses and wills to do so. We have extended praise and worship and prayer in these services and seek for the filling of the Holy Spirit. No one service is alike for God moves as He pleases. There is no planned sermon although there is usually a short devotional given and there is no official ending to the service (it ends when God determines). This service is simply a time to seek God's face wholeheartedly and allow for an environment where God can manifest His presence, power, and glory and thus change our lives in the process.
Th Great Compassion Ministries - Once a month after the morning church service, a group of people go out to the community door to door and seek to help out the poor and needy. The church goes out to the Dover community and both speaks and lives the Gospel of Jesus Christ by loving and serving the lost and the least (reaching out to the poor and needy). We do this through creative outreach to reach both the mind and heart of the lost as we both show and speak the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ. We seek to meet the material and financial needs of people by giving out toiletries, food, clothing, etc. as people have need. We also have a food pantry for anyone in need of food, clothing, toiletries, etc. and we hope to start up a soup kitchen in the near future.
