Susquehanna Parish Ministry Group

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, Deer Creek Harmony, Fallston, First Bel Air, Franklinville, Grove, Good Shepherd, Havre de Grace, and Highland.

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 TE Todd Smith.  All churches have up to 3 votes in business decisions, by sending a teaching elder and 2 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  12:30 lunch or a 7 pm evening meeting.
