Who we are

The East Naples United Methodist Church is known to have a congregation of friendly, loving, and caring people from different demographics. The church was started in 1963 by Reverend Walter Jessup with a class of 20 members who met in the Public Health Building on the Collier County courthouse grounds.

Today Reverend Jessup's legacy lives on as we continue to live out the teachings of Jesus. The church is a member of the Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church and serves the East Naples community with worship services in English and Spanish, Christian education and Bible studies, an Early Childhood Development Center, a youth group, and a thrift store which was the first in Naples.
