Part of what makes us who we are as a church is the desire to be connected and part of the community outside of the space we meet weekly. As a church we encourage people to be actively involved in the community and take part in the many festivals in and around Dover.

Dover Days will be celebrated May 2-4, 2014. The event is the largest in Kent County and drew nearly 50,000 people in 2013. A blend of traditions and modern attractions, celebrates First State history.
Here are a few fun facts about Dover Days from their website:

  • The event was started in 1933 as a home and garden tour. To celebrate the 80th anniversary, a garden tour will be held on Sunday, May 5.
  • It is a jam-packed weekend of fun for the whole family – from the Kids Zone to the classic car show and 350 artisans, crafters and food vendors, you’ll find something for everyone!
  • You can see 300 children in colonial attire dancing around the maypole on Dover’s historic Green, named a National Monument in 2013.
  • Enjoy the Capital City’s largest parade and pet parade (yes, it’s a pet friendly event!).
  • Explore Revolutionary War, Civil War and World War II encampments.
  • Visit Woodburn, the home of the Governor.
  • More than 40 food purveyors will serve up everything from delicious barbecue to popcorn, peanuts and pizza.
In addition to being part of Dover Days as participants, Deep Water also has an information booth where we give out information about who we are while doing fun games, etc. with kids. To make it a success, we need volunteers on Saturday to do a variety of tasks. To sign up to help, contact us or comment below.
