Welcome to Fallston Presbyterian Church. We invite you to come and experience the presence of Christ in our loving and welcoming church family. Located in Fallston, Maryland, we have been serving God and the people of Harford County and beyond for over 130 years. We are committed to sharing the Good News of God’s grace and the blessings of our lives with our neighbors and each other.

Vision Statement

We are called by Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit to share God’s unconditional love with all…therefore, drawing upon the power of the Holy Spirit, we seek to enlighten, enliven, empower, encourage, and unleash ourselves, our gifts, and our blessings so that all God’s children may be nourished and grow by faith in Jesus Christ.

Please see our Church Events page and Calendar page for specific activities



Rev. Kimberly Secrist Ashby

From the Pastor: As I serve Fallston Presbyterian Church, I want us to be real about our faith and our lives. There is a lot that happens in life that’s outside of our hopes and dreams. There is a lot that happens in life that disappoints and scares us. Still, our God is bigger than all of this, and it is God to whom we turn in good times and bad. It is God who can receive our tears and praises, our doubts and promises. It is God who loves us beyond what we can imagine.

We seek to foster a welcoming community here, a place where each of us can grow in our relationship with God and each other, a place where we can be open about our joys and sorrows. From the preschool to the seniors’ group, the youth ministry to the mission work at the shelter, Fallston Presbyterian seeks to serve God and others, and to involve all of us in developing our gifts so we can give them away!

The meaning at the heart of each of our lives is found in being face to face with God who loves us, and then using who we are through God to make a difference in our world. We commit to live into this each and every day.

About the Pastor: Rev. Kimberly Secrist Ashby was ordained into the ministry in 2000, and has served as an Associate Pastor for Christian Education as well as a solo Pastor. She and her two children, Megan and Melissa, are excited to be part of the Fallston/Bel Air community. Kimberly enjoys cooking and baking, reading and speaking Spanish. She is a member of the board of the Center for Emotional Intelligence and Human Relations Skills, and has worked in Hispanic ministry, led youth retreats, trained youth advisors, and helped renovate a manse and a food pantry. She highly values keeping the church involved in spiritual growth and community service.


Pastor Kimberly’s Four Steps
To Prayer with Children

1. I’m Thankful For…
You can name family and friends, things in your house, something great that
happened today, parts of creation, and more.

2. I’m Sorry For…
Have your child think back about anything he/she did today that was not a good idea, and tell God he/she is sorry. It’s not to be a punishment time, but a time to realize that what was done didn’t make God happy, and when we say we’re sorry, God forgives us and gives us a new start!

3. I’m Praying For…
This is a chance for your child to pray for anyone around him or her who is in need – whether it’s a grandparent, a friend, another child, a teacher, or general categories like ‘people who are hungry, people who are sick, people who are sad.’

4. I Love God Because…
Ask your child to think about all the things God does for us, which are great reasons to love God. It could be ‘because God gave me a baby brother/sister,’ or ‘because God made the whole world’ or ‘because God gives me food to eat.’

Praying this 4-step prayer with your children helps them become aware of all the ways they are part of God’s world. It helps children develop that ‘attitude of gratitude’, while seeing needs they can meet and things they can do better! Using this prayer regularly develops a wonderful discipline of prayer, and you as a parent can join in too! I also encourage my children to tell God about how they feel at the end of the day.
