NUCC Golf for Fun - Today!

Hello to all! It’s time for our June golf outing sign-ups. We will be at Vineyards Country Club today, courtesy of June and John Ballew. The South course was completely dug up and redesigned, opening last December to rave reviews. Please pay at the golf course, not through the church. The price is $90.00 including a cart.

Tee times will be in short supply so don't wait to sign up with Ron Sanson, you can reach him at (239) 860-8034. You may contact John Ballew by email or phone at (732)598-2796 if you have any questions. Lunch will follow in the Pub on your tab. As we get mentally prepared for this outing, remember: Golf is an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle. 

LGBTQ? Keep Reading!

For her doctoral thesis, Pastor Angela Wells-Bean is studying what it means for a church to be Open and Affirming. She would like to speak with anyone at Naples UCC who personally identifies as LGBTQ+. These conversations will be completely confidential. They can take place in person at the location of your choosing or over Zoom. Please email Pastor Angela at Angela@NaplesUCC.org if you’re willing to speak with her.

Thank you for helping with this research!
