We are building a new Allendale…

Allendale United Methodist Church is a Reconciling Congregation. We affirm the sacred worth of all people and strive to practice Christ’s example of unconditional love without exclusion. All are welcome to participate fully in the life and ministries of this congregation. Whatever your race, ethnicity, economic situation, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, background or belief, age or condition of ableness, whether single or partnered, you are God’s beloved and are welcome here. God calls us to acts of love, grace, and advocacy to promote healing and reconciliation. We are building a new Allendale: a place without barriers, a sanctuary for all.

Join us in living out our call to love God and neighbor:

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with  all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27

“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

What a United Methodist believes


Thu May 11-City Council Meeting-Welcoming Resolution (St. Petersburg City Hall) 9 AM


CELEBRATION- Monday, May 15th, 7pm, at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church

 For more information and tickets, please see your justice ministry team members at your congregation or call the FAST office.

In May 2017, the Black Women Empower Collective (BWEC) – in conjuction with a nationwide movement – plans to host three community baby showers in three Florida regions: Tallahassee, St. Petersburg, and Pensacola.  These baby showers are for mommies-is-need and will provide our mommies with services, goods, and resources to celebrate their journey and prepare them for motherhood. Your donation puts the “community” in “community baby shower.” Donations will allow us to maximize our impact by reaching out to and partnering with local businesses, professionals, and community agencies within the area who can offer these women the necessary resources and baby items.



Allendale UMC is a drop off location for the shower.  We are accepting donations of:  new diapers, car seats, strollers, baby clothes, baby books and much more.

The Repair Clinic will be held at Allendale UMC on June 10th in the Allendale Family Life Center from 10 am to 5 pm.  Bring broken items of all types to repair and reuse rather than relegating them to the landfill:  jewelry, clothing, small appliances, electronics, and much more!  Get details on facebook page: “Repair Clinic Sponsored by Tampa Bay Time Bank” or contact JoAnne Lehrfeld at 727-204-5203 or stpeteacuchick@yahoo.com.

The Tampa Bay Time Bank is inclusive and committed to transparency. All events are welcoming regardless of ethnicity, personal history, gender identity, age, economic status, or even eye color! Anyone who is interested in the processes of the Tampa Bay Time Bank is welcome to come to our events, or observe our planning and committee meetings.

It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
