We are excited that you are considering visiting North Naples Church. We understand visiting a new church for the first-time can be overwhelming, so we have prepared a list of FAQ’s to help you feel welcome.
Expect a warm welcome from greeters in blue! Maybe you are new to the area. Maybe you’ve never been to a United Methodist Church. Maybe you’ve never been to a church at all. Wherever you find yourself on your faith journey, you are welcome here. Driving directions and parking information can be found here.
Whatever you feel comfortable in! Being on the Gulf Coast, we have some people who wear shorts and sandals but also some who like to wear sport coats. Casual or dressy, you are welcome just the same.
We have four excellent services during the weekend. On Saturday night at 5:00 PM in the Village Chapel Building 600, we offer a liturgical-style traditional service. On Sunday mornings in the Worship Center Building 400, we offer two traditional services at 8:15 and 11:00 AM with a choir, orchestra, hymns and choruses. If you prefer high-energy praise music from an on-stage band, the 9:30 AM Contemporary Service is for you.
North Naples Kids’ is our children’s ministry that teaches children Biblical truths in a fun and engaging way through storytelling, music, crafts and games. We offer excellent childcare during all three services for Infant-Pre-K in Cherub Court located to the left of the Worship Center entrance. During the 9:30 and 11:00 AM services, elementary students, K-5, can experience Kids’ Worship in the red Lakeside Building 200 across the lawn from the Worship Center. We have a large campus so feel free to visit the Connection Desk to ask for directions on where to bring your children. It is helpful to pre-register your children on our website in advance of your first visit. For registration and more information on North Naples Kids’, please visit the Children’s page
The Dock is our youth ministry for middle and high school students. On Sunday mornings, 9:30-10:30 AM, students are invited to the Youth Room for breakfast and study groups known as the Dock Cafe. We hear there is even a coffee bar! The Youth Room is located in Building 900 in the Wesley Center. For more information on The Dock, please visit the Youth page.
We strive to make our campus accessible for everyone. There is only one level in our Worship Center, and majority of our buildings on campus. We have wheelchair accessible restrooms located on either side of the Worship Center. Our Worship Center features a telecoil (loop) system for our hearing impaired visitors. Hearing aids with an activated telecoil can convert this electromagnetic field into a sound signal.
We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month at all three services. Our 5:00 PM Saturday service and 9:30 AM Sunday service celebrates Holy Communion every week. The United Methodist Church welcomes all (non-members, visitors, and children) to the Lord’s Table. Gluten-free? We have gluten-free wafers available!
If you’re a first-time guest, we want to say thank you for worshipping with us by giving you a gift! Fill out a Connect Card during service and bring it to the Connection Desk in the Breezeway after service. There, you will be able to meet some people from our church and enjoy a cup of coffee.
