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

Events

Join Pinellas NOW (National Organization for Women) for a free community viewing of the film, “Hidden Figures” (rated PG) that illustrates the rampant, albeit accepted, racism and sexism in the 1960s. Following, there will be a poignant discussion and brainstorming to address/combat these ever-present issues.

As this is a community event, we look forward to welcoming folks from all over the area to watch a stellar film about three female African American mathematicians working at NASA who fought adversity to achieve their goals. As their illustrious efforts resonate into our daily lives as impetuses for social justice, let us gather together to make change in our community and fight for equality. Aligning with NOW’s advocacy, the purpose of this event is to take action through intersectional grassroots activism to promote feminist ideals, lead societal change, eliminate discrimination, and achieve and protect the equal rights of all folks.

Our discussion after the film will be lead by Gwen Reese. She was a guest speaker at a general NOW meeting; her suggestions of how to be an ally spurred the subcommitee that spearheaded this event. We hope that together, as a community, we can unite and plan actions for social justice. Gwen Reese will also be our guide at an upcoming African American Heritage Trail on November 11th at 10AM. Please check with Pinellas County NOW for more information.

This community viewing of the film “Hidden Figures” is hosted by Allendale United Methodist Church which is located at 3803 Haines Rd N, St. Petersburg, FL 33703. This event is sponsored by the Pinellas chapter of NOW. Monthly meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Pinellas Park library. This event was created by a subcommittee of Pinellas NOW, “Ending Racism and Other Forms of Discrimination”, who meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Pinellas Park library. Non-members are welcome to join our meetings; please feel free to become active in our organization and participate in our community events.
