Thankful for a Joyous Year of Fellowship

We are a group of churches united in mission serving Harford and Baltimore Counties.  Together we encourage Christian formation and leader development, congregational development, missional engagement with our communities, prophetic witness and action for reconciliation, and the creation of new faith communities. Our churches are:  Bethel, Chestnut Grove, Christ our King, Churchville, Fallston, First Bel Air, Franklinville, Grove, Good Shepherd, Havre de Grace, and Highland. We have a membership in the Parish Resource Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.   The PRC serves as a hub for church leaders and members to exchange ideas, learn new skills, and seek guidance, support, and encouragement. All of our member churches can take advantage of their services in a broad variety of areas.  The PRC also provides keynote speakers and workshop leaders for some of our events.  


 

Our Leadership

Susquehanna Parish Ministry Group is led by a convener, TE Kimberly Secrist Ashby, and four members of a steering team:  RE Marlene Butler, TE Stephen Melton, RE Claudia Scarborough, and RE Elizabeth Scott.  All churches have up to three votes in business decisions, by sending a Teaching Elder and two Ruling Elders to meetings. The steering team implements decisions between meetings.  Meetings are normally the third Thursday of each month during the school year, either for a 12:30pm lunch or a 7pm evening meeting.
