The Mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Youth Ministries

We minister to youth in grades 6-12, and we strive to grow, engage, and transform your youth to take on the world beyond the church doors.  
Upcoming Events 
The youth of East Naples United Methodist Church are committed to serving God and reaching out to others. Throughout the year we participate in a variety of outreach events and summer mission trips. We would love for you to come and check out the opportunities for fun and impact we present. Here are some of our upcoming events:

Middle school and high school students are welcome to attend our classes that help build a solid foundation on Christ.

Youth Group
Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:30 PM (Christian Rock Café [CRC])
During youth group, we play crazy games, eat some good food, and have a lesson that is relevant and applicable to the lives of our teens.  Come join us for this exciting time of fellowship.
