Naples UCC Welcome Rev. Angela Wells-Bean

April 25 was an exciting day in the life of this church as our members called Rev. Angela Wells-Bean to be our next Minister for Congregational Care. This overwhelmingly positive vote capped off a busy weekend for Rev. Wells-Bean who, with her husband, Andy, and 2 year old son, Soren, welcomed their newest family addition, Emerson, just six weeks prior.

If you missed meeting Rev. Wells-Bean this time around and would like to get a sense of who she is personally, spiritually, and professionally, be sure to check out the recording on this page or our YouTube channel of the Virtual Reception held that weekend. Members of the Minister for Congregational Care Search Committee chatted with Angela on everything from the books she reads to the creative programs she started at UCC Burlington, where she has served as Senior Minister.

Rev. Wells-Bean joins us on Monday, September 20, and her first Sunday on the chancel will be on September 26, giving her plenty of time to finish her parental leave and to prepare her current congregation for her departure. Both the virtual reception and the sermon she delivered that weekend are here on this page and on the church website and our YouTube channel.
