"And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all."
In 1917 Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge F. & A.M. got its beginning; in 1935 they were issued a charter by the General Grand Masonic Congress A.F. & A.M. to become members of that Congress. Because of the four letter affiliation they became know as Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Florida and Jurisdiction, Inc. There are 77 Lodges across the state of Florida.
A Grand Lodge is the administrative authority in its territory known as a Jurisdiction. The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge is the Supreme Masonic Power and Authority in this Jurisdiction, under which Melchizedek Lodge #19 resides.

We are a charity organization that creates and implements community based programs and events. The community events we host primarily involve donations made directly to the community in the form of food, clothes, and services. The funds and supplies for all community events and programs that we host come from three sources: donations made directly to our organization; fundraiser’s we hold in the community; and dues paid by our members. These donations come in both monetary and material forms.
