Florida Conference Connection extends a big shout-out to North Naples UMC, which has received recognition as a "Welcoming Congregation" from United Methodist Communications. Senior Pastor Ted Sauter was notified this week of the recognition.
Congregations that achieve this recognition are part of a select group of United Methodist congregations nationwide that meet a specified criteria, including embracing newcomers and providing opportunities in discipleship. The certification as a welcoming church includes a plaque for display in the church and a special designation on the denomination's Find-A-Church.org website.
