South Hills Partnership


Spencer UMC is honored to be one of the six churches of the

South Hills Partnership

 Spencer, Carnegie, Castle Shannon, Fairhaven, and Hilltop United Methodist Churches have built a partnership in order to better minster to and with the people of the South Hills of Pittsburgh. In 2012 we were excited to welcome Crafton UMC into the Partnership. 

From 2012 through 2016 we shared the services and leadership of our loving and inspirational staff in various combinations:

 Revs. Sue Hutchins, Joe Yurko, Erwin Kerr, and Matt Price, lay pastor Patty Burns and Peggy Bowman

 Pastors Sue Hutchins, Joe Yurko, & now retired pastor Erwin Kerr at 2009 installation

In 2016 we celebrated the long history and many past ministries of Crafton UMC and Castle Shannon UMC, and closed both churches. The South Hills Partnership now consists of Carnegie, Fairhaven, Hilltop, and Spencer UMC Churches, and is being shepherded by Reverend Matthew Price.
