You Are Welcome Here

Our Saturday evening 5:30 PM service is currently indoors in the gym. However, weather permitting we are outside Friendship Meadow  - an amphitheater like space directly behind the church - or in our Pavilion - right next to the church, weather permitting.  Our musicians and pastors create a wonderful, moving worship experience. We are "loving our neighbor as ourselves" and therefore wearing masks! You can get there by parking in the lower lot and walking behind the church. You can also drive around and park in the back accessible parking. Some folks bring their own chairs and others sit on the benches or at the picnic tables. Everything is cleaned before our service and we have a great time.

Dress is casual. Be comfortable!! Our service attracts folks from a variety of denominations and church backgrounds. You will be comfortable here. The worship is user friendly, the music great, the message relevant and it connects with life. It’s what you need to keep you going and hopeful during these days!

Sunday morning worship with us is in person at 9:00 AM and 10:15 AM.  We practice all socially distant protocols.

The 9:00 AM service is also live streamed.! It’s easy to join. Just email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and get on our email list or sign up at the bottom of our homepage. We will then send you a link for worship. You can be live with us at 9:00 am, or after 10:00 am on Sunday and anytime through the week! The link is always available at the top of the webpage. 

Parking is available in both 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 upper level, the door under the awning opens with the push of a button for easy access.  If you enter on the lower level, follow the signs up the stairs or to the elevator to the upper level where the Sanctuary, Welcome Center and Church Offices are located.  During the week the door under the awning is open 8:30-3:30.

Many Ways to Connect

Being a part of a small group is a truly uplifting part of our faith experience as an extension of the community we find in worship. There are many short (a few weeks) and longer (all year) groups available and open to all including: bible study, book club, women's group, men's group, prayer group, grief support, and, once open, a variety of choirs. Check out the HAPPENINGS tab to see the current groups.  There are always new ones forming.  **Right now, many are on zoom which is a lovely way to get introduced to folks.

Mission

We are very involved with mission each month: from local missions including the neighboring food pantries, Manna House of Baltimore, Sharing Table of Harford County, ARC, adopt-a-family programs, school supplies and shoe missions for local children, and supporting school lunch debt to national missions like UMCOR, Puerto Rico, Operation Christmas Child and Appalachia Service Project. We also connect locally with local nursing homes, scouting and more!  The HAPPENINGS tab has information about the current mission project. Feel free to jump right in and serve!

 

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.

Fallston Child Care Center

Children learning at the Fallston Childcare Center
 
Fallston Child Care Center first opened its doors in September of 1982. The day care center was organized as an outreach of Fallston United Methodist Church for the purpose of helping to answer the community’s child care needs. Offering families affordable, quality child care in a small-group setting within the church facility was the goal of this ministry. Concern for each child as an individual is basic to our philosophy. Fallston Child Care Center seeks to create a loving, caring atmosphere that will stimulate young minds and help them grow mentally, physically, and socially.
