“Sometimes it takes a wrong turn to get you to the right place.”

Weddings are a part of the outreach ministry of FCCN. Many brides and grooms find our sanctuary a perfect setting to exchange their wedding vows as the sanctuary lends itself to the warmth and size often sought for the celebration of a wedding. The new social hall and space for the bride and wedding party to dress offer space for most every need related to getting married in our church . While neither the bride nor groom need to be members of the church, we often find couples fall in love with the church during the time of planning and celebrating their wedding and make FCCN their church home. Please visit our Wedding Website regarding celebrating your nuptials in the beautiful setting of our sanctuary.
The Great Commission of our Lord was to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit…” (Matthew 28: 19) Baptism is one of the sacraments of the church and the church is happy to provide this sacrament either during morning worship or in a private ceremony for infants and adults. When infants are baptized, parents do make the promise by their life and teaching to lead the baptized child to an understanding of the Christian faith and into service of Jesus Christ by their own life and example, meaning they intend to bring the child up in the Christian environment of the church. You may call the church office and speak with one of the pastors regarding the sacrament of baptism and scheduling the service.
In a retirement community like Naples, there are a hosts of people who never connect with a church to call home, but who find themselves in a grief-sticken situation by the unexpected loss of a loved one. Unexpected losses often place families in a situation of wanting to celebrate the life of their loved one in the setting of a church rather than a funeral parlor. While our pastors are ready to respond to the pain of human loss in whatever circumstance, the church is also ready to reach out to those families and offer the resources of the church to bring comfort, peace, healing, and to send their loved one off with a proper service of worship.
