We believe that God is the giver of every good gift (James 1:17) and that He invites us to give back to Him in order to invest in His Kingdom. With First Naples, there are several different categories of giving: the General Budget, Building Fund, Kingdom Missions Offering, Friends of the Lion and various capital stewardship campaigns. In addition to Legacy Giving, we have 6 ways you can give.
