Dear Friends,

We announced on Sunday that beginning July 1, there are two things that happen! First, Danny Breidenbaugh will be joining our staff as the associate pastor. Danny served here as a student intern for several years, and also worked with our youth and as our choir director for a while.

Also, Fallston UMC will become part of the Mission Central Parish. Our two pastors have been appointed to also pastor 6 additional churches. These churches will have Parish Speakers on Sunday mornings including Jim Ditto, Betty Megill, and Diane Crider! You know them quite well. This new model of ministry provides Fallston with an opportunity to expand our mission field and serve as a teaching congregation around vital discipleship, a culture of generosity, and an outward approach to church life. We will no doubt learn some things as well from our partner churches.

Our Sunday morning life will not change drastically. Pastor Karin will be speaking most weekends with Pastor Danny preaching once a month. He will be in worship 2 additional weekends with us and out in the parish speaking on another Sunday.  

The churches joining us in this new endeavor are: Cranberry, Presbury, Frames Memorial, Poplar Grove, Texas, and Providence. It is certainly a time of transition and opportunity for these churches to thrive and for us to “enlarge our tent” as Isaiah says. It also provides us with additional pastoral support to encourage our discipleship ministries and young adult ministries as we continue to grow.

I hope you will join me in praying for this endeavor as we see what God is up to!

In Christ’s Love, Karin
