Welcome to the website for the newest congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church… in SW Florida. Join us for worship services this coming Sunday at 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM meeting just down U.S. 41 (East Tamiami Trail) from the heart of Naples.
Where is this new church located? As we begin we’re meeting near downtown Naples at the corner of the East Trail (U.S. 41) and Davis Blvd. at the new Holiday Inn Express and Suites. It is located between Olive Garden and the IHOP restaurants. The address for your GPS is: 1785 5th Ave. South, Naples, FL 34102.
Who is the pastor? Pastor Eric Hausler has recently returned to the Naples area after 15 years away. He has been a church planter and organizing pastor in West Michigan since 1998 (Visit http://www.redeemer-opc.org to see more) and has now been called by the Presbytery of the South of the OPC to plant a church in Naples. Eric and his wife, Donna, moved back to Florida in early July and are excited about this new stage in life! They have four sons: Micah (24), Timothy (22), Joey (20), and Daniel (19).
What is the name of this new church? Naples Presbyterian Church (OPC). The word “Naples” comes from the Ancient Greek for “New City” ( Νεάπολις (Neapolis), from νέα (nea, “new”) + πόλις (polis, “city”) – which is fitting for us as Christians, for we are looking for a new city – a heavenly one made not with humans hands, but made by God! (Revelation 21:2; Hebrews 11:16)…and Naples is where we live!
Why is this new church forming in Naples? Because the south and east part of Naples is a rapidly growing area and there is much work to be done to proclaim the Gospel of Grace!
How can I get involved or make a contribution? You may send financial gifts to make this new mission work possible. Checks may be made out to: Presbytery of the South Home Missions, c/o Calvary OPC, 814 North Gadsden St., Tallahassee, FL 32303 – earmarked for the SW Florida Church planting work.
And… you can get involved by spreading the news and begin praying now for the Lord’s blessing.
