200+ Year Anniversary

In November 2022 we celebrated two centuries of ministry! Check out this video created by Nikki Meadows to commemorate the occasion.

Our mission

Beginning in July 2022, Union Chapel joined the Mission Central Parish, a cooperative of 11 United Methodist Churches in Harford County and Baltimore County, MD, working together to better serve our communities and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Learn more about the MCP here.

The Parish is led by our four pastors, Rev. Dr. Karin Walker, Rev. Danny Breidenbaugh, Rev. Diane Crider, and Pastor Ryan Wiggins. They are joined by a contingent of retired pastors and lay speakers who assist in leading worship at many of our churches.

Our Community

From our Sunday morning worship to our partnerships with local charities, building and empowering our community is central to who we are!

Our Pastors

Rev. Dr. Karin Walker
Rev. Dr. Karin Walker
Lead Pastor

Rev. Dr. Karin Walker is the senior pastor of Fallston United Methodist Church and the Mission Central Parish.  She has served Fallston for the past seven years and helped the congregation to grow.  Her perspective is that the outward mindset is a key to church growth and it aligns us with the gospel of Christ.  When we serve the least, the last, the lost, we become more and more like Jesus.  Karin coaches Cross Country and Track at Fallston High School.  She is married to Mike and has two children—Joshua who is married to Judi, and Marissa. Karin enjoys training for triathlons, reading, and gardening.
