Members of FBCN or children of members of FBCN may be married at our church. Those wishing to be married should contact the Wedding Director, Mrs. Jody Statile, at 239-591-1895 or at jstatile@naplessunrealty.com.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and marriage!  What a wonderful and blessed occasion has brought us together.  We as your church family are delighted to be able to assist you as you prepare for your life together and plan your ceremony.  Your decision to marry is second only in importance to your decision to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Because of marriage’s priority in God’s eyes, we want to support, encourage, teach and pray you through the process of preparation and planning that lie ahead.  There are two primary ways in which we want to support you.  The first is in the preparation for marriage phase of our involvement with you.  It is important for you to meet with the Pastor you have chosen to officiate at your wedding as soon as possible.  He will discuss with you options for participating in activities designed to strengthen your relationship and enrich your future together.  We urge you to commit yourselves to a thorough examination of your relationship under the influence of Godly counsel.  Your marriage will benefit and be strengthened as a result of this investment.

The second phase is helping you to have the wedding ceremony you have dreamed about.
