May the peace and love of Christ be with you – Pastor Patty Robinson
Pastor Patty acquired her Licensed Local Pastor credentials in June, 2020. Pastor Patty was privileged during her schooling to be notified of her initial assignment as pastor to Taylorsville United Methodist Church, starting July 1, 2020.
Prior to becoming a Pastor, Patty’s professional career was in the field of health insurance, working for both insurance companies and doctors' offices. Pastor Patty has been married for 47 years to David and they were blessed with two daughters, Shelley and Sarah. Shelley lives in Delaware with her husband Ryan and their two boys, Kaden and Charlie. Sarah lives in Pennsylvania with her husband Ben and their two boys, Lucas and Brady. Pastor Patty was born in Mt. Vernon, OH in a family with five children, 4 girls and one brother. Her mother was a registered nurse and her father owned his own business. David and Patty relocated to Maryland in 1999 after David received a job at Clark Construction. David recently retired after 21 years with Clark. They currently live in New Market, MD.
Who Am I ?
I read somewhere that as a Christian, you believe, receive and then become, and it is surely what has happened in my life. I still have vivid memories of the summer camp when I approached the altar and pledged my belief in Jesus as Christ, my Lord and Savior. I believe His spirit is with me as a guide and companion. The triune God is impossible in my rational human brain, but at the same time the three in one is real and beautiful. The entire concept is a mystery, but that is the meaning of faith and I believe. It is as simple as that.
So why did I want to start down the Local Methodist Pastor path after having been retired since 2016? Because God told me to wear His armor and fight the evil in this world by spreading His message and bringing to Him those who are lost. It took some time and the message certainly was not that clear. However, that is where all the Christian disciplines have helped me--studying the Word, worship, prayer, fellowship, etc. The fog dispersed and the calling was there in front of me.
So why do I want to be a Methodist Local Pastor? Some of it is simply loyalty to the denomination. My great-grandfather was a Methodist minister and I was brought up Methodist. It has never crossed my mind not to be a Methodist, even with all the current turmoil within the denomination. I love the Methodist ideology, maybe because I am a problem solver and love organization, but to have a method to learn to love God fits me to a “T”.
Twelve years ago when I lost my granddaughter, the Lord starting working within me and now I want more than ever to work for Him. Baptizing His babies, remembering His son in communion, seeing the revelation of wonder on someone’s face after that "ah-ha moment" reading scripture--so much to do in His name. We do the leg work, but Jesus heals the heart. What a boss to work for and with daily! Given the opportunity I will first and foremost do all in my power to do God’s work. I will teach the disciplines of the United Methodist Church and follow the Holy Spirit on whatever journey He has in mind for me.
Come along with us on our spiritual journey at Taylorsville United Methodist Church.
With love and blessings – Pastor Patty Robinson

Here is the bread recipe video that Pastor Heath (from Tom’s Creek UMC) mentioned during Palm Sunday worship. If you are looking for something to bake while you’re #SafeAtHome you will enjoy this.
This is a worship experience unto itself.
