From the Pastor


Ebenezer UMC has been on this corner lot in Fallston, MD for over 200 years. It has been my privilege to be the pastor to this church and community for just the last 18 months. It has been exciting getting to know the families of this church and see their commitment to being a caring community that seeks to live out their faith in many ways.

I am here because I am trying to live out God’s call on my life to follow these insightful words from the Apostle Paul.  So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me. (Colossians 1:28-29)NLT

We just try to love people where they are and help them to figure how to respond to this Jesus who loves them. We, as a church, haven’t figured all this out, but we do know that we want to help people to live faithful lives in a difficult and changing world.

Join us one Sunday morning at 10:45 a.m. and explore how you can move forward in faith. If you want to know more, email me.
