North Naples UMC has been named a "Welcoming Congregation" by United Methodist Communications.

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 website.


Donate here to the Florida Conference Hurricane Michael Fund to help churches and the neighborhoods that surround them. Through December 31, 2018, donations will be matched up to $500,000. Volunteer to bring yourself or a team to help with the recovery.
