Watch the Service Live :


    The goal of Recreation Ministries is to introduce others to Jesus Christ by creating opportunities for fellowship and service in leisure and recreation.


    In the summer of 2000, NNUMC hosted Southwest Florida’s first UPWARD basketball league. We have since added UPWARD Cheerleading, Soccer, Flag Football, and Summer Camps.

    UPWARD operates on these premises:

    • Every child is a winner on God’s team.
    • Each person is unique and of supreme value in the eyes of God.
    • Coaches ensure each player gets an equal opportunity for play.
    • UPWARD emphasizes respect for authority in the game, in the classroom, and in all other areas of life.
    • Coaches are committed to maintaining a positive atmosphere, in practice and on game days.
    • Whether it’s basketball, soccer, football, or cheerleading, it should be fun to play!

    The 2013 Upward Football and Cheerleading season begins August 31 and concludes November 2.

    The Saturday game schedule is: 9AM Football – All grades play

    Tell a friend!


    When friends play together, they grow together, learning to lean upon each others’ strengths and experience. NNUMC teams share in prayer and step into the arena as ambassadors for Christ and His church. Through competitive play, teamwork, and sportsmanship, we have been able to find avenues for spiritual growth.

    Winter season is Men’s League Softball.
    Co-Ed Softball plays in spring and fall, followed by Bowling Leagues.

    Collier County is a golfer’s paradise and Whole-in-One Golf builds a bridge from the church to the tee.

    You see, we have many strong softball, volleyball, and indoor soccer teams, but the competitive spirit pales compared to the shared fellowship.

    Men's Pick-Up Basketball

    Every Wednesday night, 8:00-9:30 p.m., the Wesley Center Community Center is open to members and friends for open 3-on-3 basketball. Stretch those legs and improve your game as you share some time with Christian friends on the court.

    General Fitness Classes

    NNUMC offers different types of general fitness classes such as Bodies Recalled. In the past we’ve offered yoga, Prayerobics, Pilates, social dance, self-defense, Tai Chi, and Tae Kwon Do. We do all this in order to be able to do the work to which God calls us.


    NNUMC is host to one of the largest most active Scouting programs in south west Florida. We have opportunities for boys and girls from ages 5 through 21. These include Daisies, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing Crew.
