Did you know? Online Communion
There is a brief communion service available on our website for those who are unable to participate in worship in person on the first Sunday of the month, or wish to partake in communion on their own from home. Please visit our website here to view.
Sunday Services

Safety in Sanctuary Worship
We joyfully welcome back those of you just returning to Naples. We ask all worship participants to wear masks throughout the service. Worship leaders are distanced on the chancel. Our soloists give voice to our sung praises while we refrain from congregational singing. Following the service, we invite you to conversations outside under the porte cochères. 
Year-End Giving
Appreciated securities can be a tax-efficient way to fund your 2020 annual commitment or prepay your 2021 commitment. Many of our members and friends give this way, which helps support our ministries throughout all months of the year. If using the U.S. mail, please be certain that the check-bearing envelope has a visible December postmark. Otherwise, please ensure that we are in physical receipt of funds by the morning of December 31. 

Please prayerfully consider making a prepaid annual commitment for 2021 before the end of this year. Many members like to fulfill their pledge before the New Year. The finance office would be grateful to receive such donations before December 31. All donations with a December postmark are considered for 2020, even if you elect to prepay your pledge.

Detailed instructions can be found online at mooringschurch.org/give. If you need further assistance, please contact Hope Turner at (239) 213-5233 or by email at hturner@mooringschurch.org. (Note that the church offices will be closed the afternoon of December 31.)
Give to the Kingdom
We continue our 2021 Stewardship Campaign. Pledges may be mailed, dropped in an offering plate at the back of the sanctuary, or submitted online here. We are grateful to God and to our members for your generous giving for 2020, and we look forward to God’s provision through you next year as we seek to be people of prayer, praise, and witness in Naples and beyond. 
Christmas Mission Offering
St. Matthews House is the only facility in Collier County that provides shelter, nourishing meals, case management and access to medical care to homeless, broken families, which tend to be headed by single moms. The average length of stay in a SMH shelter for such a family is 5 months. This Christ-centered organization is bracing for unprecedented surge in need as the pandemic and associated economic dislocation continues. Help us raise $12,000 in this offering to support 3 families for a duration of 5 months. 100% of your contributions go directly to help these moms and kids. Be sure to mark your gift “Christmas Mission Offering, ” or give online here.
Poinsettias
It’s that time of year to celebrate a loved one with a poinsettia. Each plant is $15 and will be displayed on our Chancel and in the Narthex during the Christmas season. Forms can be picked up under the porte cochère on Sundays, at the reception desk during the week, or online here. You may also give a Christmas donation to the church Endowment Fund. Forms must be returned o later than Wednesday, December 16 to be included in the Christmas Eve bulletin.
'Round-the-Table Sing
Our ‘Round-the-Table Sing event will be presented a little differently this year. The church will produce and upload two videos and invite you to participate from home. The first video will be from Chef Evie, walking us through the recipe for her famous meatballs, and was made available online on December 9. The second video, will be available on December 16, and will feature musical ensembles, instrumental music, a sing-along section with various carols and popular Christmas songs, and will conclude with a special version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. You will be able to access both videos on our website here.
