Worship is celebrated each Sunday at 9:00 am and 10:15 am. Children’s Sunday School is held during the 10:15 service. Our 9:00 Engage Worship is an informal worship time that features a children’s message, contemporary music, message, prayer and a time of reflection. Our later morning service is a blended/traditional service and includes a children’s message, our adult choir, message and prayer.  It usually lasts about an hour.

Parking is available in both of the lots that surround our facility, with overflow parking available at the library next door, accessible by a connecting sidewalk.

Doorways to our facility are found adjacent to the parking lots. If you enter on the lower level, follow the signs up the stairs or to the elevator to the upper level where the sanctuary entrance is located.  At the sanctuary entrances you will find friendly people (our greeters) who will be happy to answer any of your questions and escort you to the various places in our building.

Children are a gift from God and are always welcome here.  At both services, there is a children’s message time with the pastor before dismissal to Sunday School for those through the elementary grades.  Parents can elect to escort their elementary and younger children to their classrooms, or the children can travel with their escorted group.  Groups meet at the double sanctuary doors after the children’s message.  Middle & High School students meet their teachers directly in their classrooms before worship.  Children are always welcome to remain in worship with their parents. During our two worship services, we have staff who provide care for our infants and toddlers. Our Nursery provides a comfortable place for our youngest and is equipped with a pager alert system so parents can attend worship with assurance that they can be reached if needed.  The morning worship is broadcast throughout the upper level.  A rocker and other comfortable seating can be found in our Welcome Center. If you find that you might be more comfortable there and need to relocate during worship, please feel free to use this area.

Dress is always up to you.  You will see everything from suits to recreational sports gear.  Be yourself, be comfortable.

Communion (Lord’s Supper or Eucharist) is celebrated the first Sunday of the month at both of our worship times.  Our communion table is open to all persons desiring to connect with God through the loaf and the cup.  Traditional bread, gluten free bread and non fermented wine are used.  If you would rather not participate in this portion of the service please feel free to relax and enjoy the music.

Worship Folders contain the order of worship for the 10:15am gathering.  The numbered hymns are found in the United Methodist hymnal located in each pew.

Coffee Fellowship is held each Sunday between and after the morning services in the Welcome Center. Here at Fallston UMC church is about God, worship, community and compassion.  Please join us for a cup, some conversation, and an opportunity to get to know each other better.

Fallston United Methodist Church celebrated its 175th Anniversary in 2002. Our beginnings date to 1827, and even before, to a group of Methodists that worshipped in homes in this part of Harford County, Maryland. Fallston United Methodist Church was formed by the 1962 merger of Providence Methodist Church and Friendship Methodist Church, both located on Fallston Road and served by the same pastor since 1952.

We built our Education building in 1966, completed our Sanctuary in 1977, and added a large gymnasium, stage and kitchen in 2001. Two spaces bear the names Friendship Center (gym) and Providence Hall in honor of our founding congregations.

We are today a vibrant congregation, from our babies and toddlers to those who have been part of FUMC for decades, with an average Sunday worship of about 300. Our Sunday School program, staffed by more than 25 volunteer teachers, serves about 100 children each week.

We are Mission-Focused. Here at Fallston Church, we are always engaged with people outside our four walls, committed to serving others. From adopting families at Thanksgiving and Christmas to adopting a family and their new apartment year round, to responding immediately to the tragedy of tornadoes in Oklahoma and the flooding in Colorado, we invite the community to join us in serving. Each year, over 70 youth and adults go on an Appalachia Service Project trip, and others are prepared to build handicapped accessible ramps for folks in the community whom may need assistance. We assist our community schools with school supplies, gift cards for shoes, and financial assistance for extra-curricular activities. And we always are searching for new ways to engage with our community. If you want to make a significant impact on the lives of others as well as be blessed, we are the place for you. Come and learn more about how your life can transform someone else’s life.

Everyone here is welcomed as a guest and a gift from God.  God has blessed us with a talented and committed congregation that worships in a variety of ways, nourishes faith while honoring doubt, works and plays informally and joyously, reaches out to others both passionately and compassionately, and respects and appreciates differences and diversity.  Come as you are . . . our hearts, minds, and doors are truly open. We invite you to explore our Web site to get a glimpse of who we are and what we do.  The pictures you see are still developing, and the stories you read are still unfolding; we hope that they will soon include you.
