Pastor Margery Schammel ~ Bio
I was born and grew up in northern Pennsylvania, in the woods and hills north of Williamsport, which is the home of the Little League World Series. I preached my first sermon when I was 12 years old and became a “lay speaker” at the age of 14. After taking my time with education, I completed my master’s degree at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1992 and started working at Hiss UMC that summer. I left Hiss in 2003 and began at Towson UMC in 2005. I was at Towson UMC for 16 years. I have been in chaplaincy training for the past couple of years. I was married in 1994 to a navite of Baltimore City and have two daughters. My daughters are grown now, one living in Illinois and the other living in California. My husband, WIllie, and I live in Baldwin, MD with our small, old dog.
Perry Hall UMC has been a stable and inspiring presence of God’s grace in this community, and I am honored to begin serving as your Pastor. I look forward to getting to know you as you get to know me. We will serve God, one another, and those in need as we continue the church’s tradition of following where God leads.
