Welcome to Fallbrook United Methodist Church -- a place where we celebrate who God is and how God is still at work within our world today, through the scriptures of the Old and New Testament, in the power of Jesus Christ and in the strength of the Holy Spirit.

Come as you are, whether you are seeking to know more about God, struggling with your faith, or a Spirit-filled, well seasoned believer, you will find a place here. May the love and light of God lead you as you find a place to call home.

We invite and welcome all to Christ's family, focusing on God's love in mission to the community and world.

Pastor Katie

Pastor Katie has been a minister for 8 years and in the process of ordination during that time. She enjoys building relationships with people in the church, while also connecting to the surrounding community, especially over a cup of coffee or a lovely walk.

She finds purpose in preaching the Word, caring for people, and welcoming everyone to join in the mission of God here and now.

Pastor Katie received her Master of Divinity with an emphasis in Cross Cultural Ministry in 2019 from Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City Missouri; and her Bachelors in Sociology from Point Loma Nazarene University.

When she is not working in the church you'll find her hanging out with her husband (John), their toddler, their dog (Annie) and cat (Toni). She loves to listen to an array of books, working in the garden, go on adventures outside and explore local stores.

About Us

All are welcome to worship with us.  A warm and welcoming congregation meets each Sunday morning for worship. Our worship is a combination of traditional music with organ and choir, blended with a praise band.  There is a weekly message for children during the service and children are invited to then stay and worship with their parents or attend Sunday School.  The Pastor's  messages each week are biblically based and relevant for daily living.

Childcare is provided.

Fallbrook United Methodist Church is a mix of long history with an eye toward the future.  Fallbrook’s oldest denominational church, the Fallbrook United Methodist Church, is over 131 years old. For more information about the United Methodist Church, please visit

A Methodist congregation was organized in Fallbrook in 1887, with its first church building being constructed in 1888 at the corner of Fig St. and South Mission Rd. (previously known as Hill St.) That building still stands and is currently the home of the First Christian Church. On what was once a grove, the Fallbrook United Methodist Church began construction of its present facility in 1974 at 1844 Winterhaven Road.

Come and join us as we worship God, develop as followers of Jesus Christ, and work in the world as God's people who want to make a difference.

I'm New

Welcome to Fallbrook Methodist Church. We do our best to make sure that everyone who comes to Fallbrook UMC is made to feel at home. From the time you walk through the front door, you will find people just like you who love God and are on a journey to become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Service Time

Sunday morning service begin at 10:00 am and ends at approximately 11:00 am. We offer a family friendly worship with traditional music and hymns with a full choir, children's moment, people's prayers, pastor's message and a closing blessing. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month and all are welcome to participate in Communion. No membership required. We have a fellowship gathering after every service to mingle and get to know people in a more casual and informal setting.


We are located at 1844 Winterhaven Rd., Fallbrook, CA 92028

Handicapped accessible facilities

The church facility is entirely on a single level accessible through an exterior ramp that provide access to the sanctuary and the rest of the campus.


Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in. People who come to Fallbrook UMC wear anything from casual to business casual to dressy attire. Feel free to leave the ties and high-heeled shoes at home if that is not what you would normally wear. We believe that God is not concerned with your external appearance, He wants to know you!


Children are always welcome at Fallbrook UMC. Your children usually stay with you for the first part of the service. Our Pastor hosts a "Children's Time" during the service, after which the children typically leave to go to Sunday School. They will be cared for and taught a Bible-based curriculum and you will be able to pick them up at the end of the service. We also have a Nursery and an attendant for the tiny ones.

But I still have more questions!

Please feel free to call us anytime - we'll be happy to take the time to answer any question you may have. Better yet, why not visit us this Sunday and see for yourself what a great place Fallbrook UMC can be! If you would like to contact us now, please call us at (760) 728-1472.
