Fun for all ages and stages. Join us for heavenly food, holiday crafts and the ultimate angel-building team competition.

We are also collecting recycled "stuff" as angel decorations (ex. yarn, holiday decor, tinsel, paper and fabric scraps, foil, beads, wire and more). Think "mini scarecrow" and you'll donate the right stuff. Leave all items in the church office by Nov 27, 2019.

Towson United Methodist Church is a community of Christ-followers growing in love
ofGod and neighbor. This is what we, at Towson UMC, believe Christian discipleship is, what we are to be, and what Jesus meant when He sent His followers to "make disciples." We believe every person is of sacred worth and created in God's image. We commit to Jesus' example of inclusive love, care, and intentional hospitality with persons of every race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, faith story, physical or mental ability, economic status, or political perspective. We respect our diversity of opinion and expressions of faith. Therefore, as God loves us, so let us love and serve in the name of Christ.
