Music

Music is an integral part of worship here at East Naples United Methodist Church. Our Director of Music, Brent Nicholas, creates engaging music ministry opportunities for all ages. During our worship services we feature music from our amazing Chancel Choir, Jubilate - our handbell group, Kings Kids children's choir, Youth, #4HisGlory, soloists and special music performances. We are blessed to have a gifted organist, LaVon Mattson, and guest vocalists and instrumentalists throughout the year. We also have a 6:30 contemporary service on Saturdays called Strong Tower. We invite you and your family to come and join us as we sing praises to our Lord.

 Do you have a talent to share? Contact Brent to see where you can be used for the glory of God at East Naples UMC. Brent@enaples.org
