Welcome to Aldersgate!

Celebration Sunday Dinner

Nov. 2 at Noon in the Family Life Center

We are hoping every member and family of Aldersgate Church will be in one of our worship services as we make important commitments to the Lord’s work through Aldersgate for 2015.  Then join us for a covered-dish dinner.

The church will provide the meat and each family is asked bring an ample salad, side dish, or dessert to share.

Youth Pastor Search


Dear Church,

Aldersgate Church has been blessed with decades of excellent youth ministry which has brought many youth and families into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Now we need every member’s help in getting this message out:

“Aldersgate United Methodist Church, the “Church with a Warm Heart”, is looking for a Youth Pastor who enjoys preaching and connecting with young people.  Aldersgate is a multi-generational church with great facilities and a long tradition of excellent youth ministry.  The church is surrounded by neighborhoods with families and is located in Seminole, Florida, close to many nationally rated beaches.  Seminole is part of the Tampa Bay metropolitan area and boasts multiple cultural venues and a variety of major and minor league sports teams.  Apply by sending your resume to applicants@yminstitute.com. “

Will you please repost this request for people who are interested in becoming our next Youth Pastor to your Facebook page, or other ways of communicating through social media?  Please share it as widely as you can because our partner in this pre-hiring search, Youth Ministry Institute, advised each local church that we need 1,000 postings of this vital message in order to recruit the best fit for our youth ministry to grow to the next level in the future.

We also have an active group of middle and senior high youth who are meeting now on Sundays and Wednesdays thanks to a small group of dedicated adult youth volunteer leaders.  They have informed me of  an immediate need for members of all ages to volunteer for the next two months in the following areas:

  • Someone to head up Pumpkin Patch
  • Birthday Night refreshments on Nov. 5
  • Someone to create and head up at least 1 fun event for October and November
  • Someone to act as  Youth Ministry Program Coordinator  – this person would make sure all events, materials, communication was being handled  i.e. described like a “Mom”


Let’s keep praying at 10:02 a.m. or p.m. as Jesus commanded us in Luke 10:2, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest field.”  The “field” stands for all the youth in our area that must come to know Jesus and follow him.


God is good all the time!

Pastor David


Youth Sunday Morning Bible Study!

On August 17, 24, and 31 we will be having a youth bible study at 10:00 am in L2 of the FLC. This study is for any middle and high school youth seeking to get a deeper look into some of the bible’s most important stories, people and lessons. It begins immediately after worship songs and ends at 10:30 am.



Young Adults Bible Study

Are you a young adult looking to grow in your walk with God? We have a great Young Adult Bible Study that meets every Sunday at 5:30 and is led by our awesome former youth pastor, Lisa Sebastian. For more details, look on our Facebook page!

What if I have a small child?    Parents with infants or small children are invited to visit and meet our warm and loving nursery attendants before or after each service.  Aldersgate provides a pager system to help you if your child has an urgent need.

What can I do with my Elementary aged children?  Children are always welcome in the services, however if you wish during our 9:30 services we have Kid Zone with our Children’s Minister Connie Carpenter.

Do I have to participate in the Offering?  Visitors, please do not feel obligated to participate in the offering.  The support of this ministry is the responsibility of those who consider this church their home.  This worship service is our gift to God and to you.
