About us

Valley Church of Allendale is a United Methodist Church located in a commercial building along Lake Michigan Drive. We have a modern style, including a contemporary worship band and the freedom to simply come as you are. We have grown incrementally since being "parachute-planted" in 2010. This means that Pastor Matt was given a small budget and a big vision to develop a church in the Allendale area. The stakes were high, because if his church was not viable after just 3 years, it would be shut down. Despite the high failure rates of other parachute plants, Pastor Matt was able to connect with a small network of people who helped him to build a lasting foundation, many of whom are still walking alongside Valley Church today.
