You Are Welcome Here

Our steeple at sunset
Our pastors and musicians create a wonderful, moving worship experience.  
 

Our Sunday morning worship is in person at 9:00 AM and 10:15 AM.  We practice all socially distant protocols. We are "loving our neighbor as ourselves" and therefore wearing masks.  The 9:00 AM service is also live streamed. It’s easy to watch. The link is always available at the top of the website. 

Our Saturday evening 5:30 PM service is outside Friendship Meadow  - an amphitheater like space directly behind the church - or in our Pavilion - right next to the church, weather permitting.  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 services attract 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!

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 church is open from 8:30-3:30.  Please use the door under the awning off of the upper parking lot.

Connect and Serve

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 long) groups available and open to all including: bible study, book club, women's group, men's group, prayer group, grief support, adult fellowship and a variety of choirs. Check out the HAPPENINGS tab to see the current group offerings. There are always new ones forming.  And right now, many of the groups are on Zoom, which is a lovely way to be introduced to folks.  

We are very involved with missions 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, support 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 Child Care Center / Fallston Christian Home School / Scouting

Our steeple at sunset

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. See their website for more information

 
Fallston Christian Home School is a ministry of Fallston UMC serving local Christian families in Harford, Cecil and Baltimore Counties. The goal is to encourage and inspire parents in the rewarding journey of home education. See their website for more information
 
 
Interested in Scouting?  Find out how your child can enjoy adventures and new friendships, build confidence, support the community, learn leadership skills, connect with the outdoors, have FUN and so much more!  We are very privileged to have a number of scout and pack groups that meet here each week.

History

Fallston United Methodist Church celebrated its 190th Anniversary in 2017. Our beginnings date to 1827, and even before, to a group of Methodists that worshiped 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 Fallston UMC 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.
