Pastor’s Welcome


I’m the new guy in the middle, flanked by two amazing men: Pastor Stan DePano on the left & Pastor Allan Ocampo on the right.

Hey you found us online!  You’re almost here. And this is a place you’re really going to love.  Well…the people, it’s the people you’re going to love.  The people at Ronald United Methodist Church are a beautiful mix of culture, color, nationality, age and language.

These people are striving to offer radical hospitality to everyone in our community. We celebrate the wonderful partnership with our neighbors at Hopelink and Ronald Commons (a Compass Housing Residence.)

Our large and active Social Advocacy Team regularly engage in activities. We are sponsors of the Faith Action Committee. We are a beloved community committed to justice and full inclusion in the church, in our community and in our country.

We are not perfect, and we don’t all agree on every issue, but we love one another and strive to live out our faith in the world.

After 9 great years at Lake Washington United Methodist Church in Kirkland, I came to Ronald UMC  in July 2016, and I’m looking forward to the next 10 years with you and the other great folks at Ronald UMC, as we love and serve the people of Shoreline and North Seattle.

Take your time looking around our website. Check us out on Facebook.  I believe and will often say, “we all have needs, and we all have something to share.” If you think you think one or both of those describe you, I hope you check us out.
