Adult Fellowship is a group of Christian Believers united for the purpose of Christian Fellowship and Service.

Who are the Adult Fellowship?  Adult Fellowship is designed primarily for those of the congregation who have reached the point where they are no longer deeply involved in raising a family and find that they now have more leisure time for fellowship and service activities. However, the group is open to all adult members and friends of the Church. Please contact Dot Jones if you have any questions.

What are the activities of Adult Fellowship?  The group meets monthly, usually on Sunday evening; but, periodically, the group has a Saturday breakfast meeting. The meetings include discussion of items of business and planning, and time is allowed for fellowship and refreshments. Also, there usually is a guest speaker or related activity.

UnitedMethodistWomen

The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative supportive fellowship, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

"Give your worries to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will never let good people down." Psalm 55:22

All women of the church are invited to join us at our meetings. Contact person for the United Methodist Women is Janice Easter, President, 410-877-2949.

youth 4 6Our Mission

The mission of the Fallston United Methodist Church Youth Fellowship is to welcome all youth, middle and high school ages, into a social, spiritual, and service-oriented youth ministry program. Social, spiritual, and service...what we call our program's "3 S's." Our goal is to provide activities in a welcoming environment where youth can grow in their faith with the support of a youth leader, their peers, and parent volunteers. We hope to positively influence youth morally, socially, and spiritually by performing God's work and experiencing God personally in the varied activities we do as a group.

Youth Zone  Wednesdays 6-8:30pm

All middle and high school age youth are invited to join us every other Wednesday evening.  We begin by making dinner and then eating together.  We then divide into small groups for discussion of a variety of topics relating the Bible to our lives today.  The evening ends with games (basketball, gaga ball etc).

 

 

Parent volunteers of all commitment levels are happily accepted!

MOPs1MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a program designed to nurture mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten.

It is a safe, loving environment where moms have the opportunity to make new friends, share experiences, and laugh together. They learn Biblical principles pertaining to womanhood, parenting, and marriage.

If you are a mother of a child birth through kindergarten or are an expecting mom, and you are interested in information about the MOPS group here at Fallston, please contact Shaunna Rivera.

MOPS is looking for volunteers to serve as Mentor Moms. We need experienced mothers (moms with kids older than kindergarten age) who would occasionally attend our monthly meetings to share their wisdom and support. We also need adult volunteers willing to help with child care during our meetings (by overseeing our teenage volunteer MOPPETs). Again, this does not need to be a monthly commitment but is necessary for us to continue offering child care for single moms or moms whose husbands or spouse are deployed or otherwise unavailable in the evenings. Should you feel called to help our group in either capacity, please contact Jeanne Mackowiak.

theaterfacesA diverse group of interested people met for the first time in the parlor of Fallston United Methodist Church in the mid-1990′s to discuss the possibility of creating a theater troupe to raise funds for the church. The Friendship Players (named after FUMC roots as Friendship Church) performed for the first time in the fall of 1997. This premier dinner theater featured "Down to Earth," a comedy, forming the foundation for the group's endeavors and subsequent productions. The Players are "down to earth" (no prima donnas allowed) and talented. The annual event, historically in the fall, features six entertaining performances, and a meal that receives rave reviews as well.
In preparation for opening night, the cast and crew rehearse from early July to October, with auditions in April. This span of time allows The Players to build a foundation for the Friendship in their name. The cast comes from the Church and the northern Maryland community, many having experiences elsewhere, including professional troupes. Most come back annually to return to familiar relationships and venue. New actors are always welcomed. The ages have ranged from five to eighty years. The group thrives on the chemistry among the actors and the audience as well.

The dinner theater has become a major fundraiser for the Church. The supportive community "waits in line" to make reservations for this relaxing event, featuring a bountiful feast and an escape into the drama/comedy on the stage.

small groups t 200Knowing, Loving, Serving, Growing

Small Groups at Fallston UMC are designed to create an opportunity for individuals to explore their relationship with God, to express that relationship in a safe nurturing environment, to develop their faith through service, and to grow their faith as they experience discipleship.

Our small groups meet in a variety of formats that are designed to encounter individuals at all points along their journey of faith.  Some of our groups meet on a long term basis; others meet for short six week studies.  Throughout the year new groups and new materials are made available.  Each group individually decides on their meeting day, time, location and frequency of gathering.

 

The small group covenant

1. Share time—the group has a chance to check in with each other (radical hospitality)
to encourage each other; strengthen each other, and pray for each other.
2. Have a start time and ending week where there is a short break and then a renewal so that others can join the group or move on to another group.
3. Mission—each small group will participate in a mission together.
4. Begin and end with prayer.
5. Small groups facilitate our relationship with Jesus Christ. At the end of each
session, the small group leader will ask for several folks to share what they
learned or discovered about God or the spiritual journey, or about his/her relationship with God.

Unless otherwise noted, all small groups meet at the church.
