The Napoli United Methodist Church recently hosted a free spaghetti dinner to honor and welcome its new pastor, Rene Adams, and her husband, Bob.
Adams is known at the church by first being a member and then going back to school to become a pastor. She has already hosted the pastor's picnic for the Cornerstone District of Western New York and the Women's Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast for church women from several churches in the area.
Napoli is an active church with many opportunities for its members. The church's missions team has sent a team to Red Bird, Ky., to work with residents in the area with construction needs. The church actively participates in Operation Christmas Child, the CROP Walk, backpacks for local children through the Trading Post in Cattaraugus, helping neighbors in the area with construction projects to make their homes warm and solid. The church is also active at the Cattaraugus County Fair with its ice cream booth.

Adams has developed opportunities for Bible studies during the day or on Sundays available to not only church members, but anyone interested. She has begun a children's church service during adult church led by members of the congregation. After church each Sunday, a coffee hour is held for members and guests to visit and get to know each other. She also has an outreach service each month at the Randolph Manor.
