2018–2019 FALL | WINTER

k o Bo North Naples Church is a family, inspiring and equipping me to follow Jesus.

Our Discipleship Process Connect We believe life with Jesus is better than life without

Him. Therefore, we create avenues to help people connect to church and faith. We encourage attendees and members to invite friends and help them get connected to North Naples Church and the Christian faith.

Attend We believe in gathering to worship God. We

encourage people to regularly attend a service where they can come to God in worship.

Study We believe in spiritual growth through

studying God’s word with other believers. A study group is available for every stage of the faith journey.


We believe God has given each of us unique gifts and called us to serve. Sharing God’s love in a tangible way through service is a reflection of our faith and Christ’s example. 2

We would love our community to know Jesus.

Here are some great events for inviting friends!
