About The Current

What is The Current?

The Current is a loving, learning community. While much of our focus is on Jesus as our spiritual Rabbi, we welcome all faiths and questions here. We understand that a journey toward wholeness with God and each other requires constant self-reflection and study from a wide variety of disciplines, both religious and secular. It’s our sincere hope that your experience with us will provide nourishment for your spiritual trek.

At The Current, we strive to offer many different ways to discover and connect to a higher way of being human. It’s more interconnected–with one another, yes, but also with the so-hard-to-describe knowing there is more to reality than meets the senses.

  • Food Angels on Saturday mornings @10:30am: Donate to or serve in our food bank, delivering hundreds of meals to food-at-risk families every week.
  • Intersect Study Sunday mornings at 9am: Explore current events through the lens of infinite love that is our birthright.
  • God Connect service on Sunday mornings @10am: Music, meditation, prayer and discussion intended to help us connect to our higher, true selves.
  • And a variety of other studies, book clubs and music events throughout the week.

While we honor our Christian heritage, The Current has a distinctly 21st Century personality. Our style’s a bit more fluid. An eclectic mix of music encourages us to think about the secular in sacred ways. We cherish moments of silence, leaving space for God’s loving whispers. We encourage questions about God, the Bible, Jesus, and spirituality in general. We find answers at the intersection of faith and science by keeping open hearts and open minds.

Communion is central to our belief and is served every Sunday at the 10am God Connect service. That’s because this inexplicable force we call “God” has always been about community—and what better way to create community than to sit around the table together, breaking bread and sharing stories and ideas?  We hope you find warmth, inspiration, and new ways to experience the living Godhead within us when you visit The Current.

FCC Naples is a religious organization focused on helping individuals find their personal path to higher enlightenment.

God Connect

At The Current, connecting with God (or Universal Mind, Infinite Energy, whatever your name for the connective tissue of existence) is the central purpose of our Sunday 10am gathering. Every week, individuals experience God anew through a living and transformative experience.

We use music, lessons, discussion, prayer, meditation and silence to learn with and from each other. This is a safe space to work through what we believe or not. People who attend The Current practice being citizens of an interconnected world. It is through understanding our interconnectedness that true peace–both personal and global–occurs.

We are an open and affirming community, and everyone, without exception, is invited to share in the full experience of God Connect.

We Celebrate God’s Activity In and Through Us Every Sunday @10am.
Please join us for a discussion about current events seen through the lens of God’s love @9am.

Here are some area agencies we support, along with some information about them, and how you can help.

“Our mission is to overcome hunger in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties through education and by working in a cooperative effort with affiliated agencies in the procurement and distribution of food, equitably and without discrimination.

The Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida was opened in 1983. Formerly known as the Lee County Food Cooperative, the Harry Chapin Food Bank has served as the only food bank in Southwest Florida.

We’ve partnered with 150+ agencies that provide direct services to those in need, including church food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, disaster relief agencies and more. Today, the food bank provides food for more than 30,000 individuals each month. In 2013 alone, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 17.5 million pounds of food, provided 14.6 million meals, and turned every $1 into $6 worth of food for those in need.”

Giving Kids requests cash donations, as they order wholesale items, and stretch every penny!  Every dollar donated goes directly to the gift program, as overhead is paid by the founders.  It only takes $5 to sponsor one child to participate.

To donate: use the “Donate” button at http://fccnaples.org/ to donate by PayPal or credit/debit card, and note “Giving Kids” in the purpose line

FCC members and staff volunteered at events last Christmas season, and it was really fun!  See the photos at:
