What an incredible journey we have had at First Congregational Church of Naples. Who would have believed 13 years ago we would have the wonderful church and congregation that has been gathered.It has all come about because of the support and dedication of many people.After spending five years in the school cafeteria, we were blessed with the beautiful sanctuary in 2009, followed by the addition of Zilinskis Hall and the educational wings in 2012. The church has grown to some 200 members and continues to grow as new people find their way to our doors. During the service on Sunday we will have a power point presentation of the thirteen years and milestones along the way. You will not want to miss this joyous celebration.
