We have so many opportunities for adults to get connected in the church! Here are a few ongoing ministries that may interest you:

The Shawl Ministry of FUMC New Braunfels is a group of ladies who knit or crochet prayer shawls for those who are going through difficult times. The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month (except the summer months) at 2pm in the Parlor at FUMC. Finished shawls are blessed with prayers before they are distributed. Many are given to those experiencing loss or illness in our church family and others go to provide comfort to anyone in need. We also make baby blankets to celebrate new babies in our congregation.

The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the United Methodist Church.

General Meetings are held first Tuesdays at the church in the assembly room.

What is a Stephen Minister?
A person trained to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care to hurting people.

Men of all ages are invited to meet for breakfast and a brief study on the third Saturday of each month. Join the men for breakfast at Granzin’s BBQ in the back room from 8:00 – 9:00 am.

MOPS is a Christian-based, social support group for mothers with children under the age of 6.
First United Methodist Church hosts MOPS meetings monthly during the school year.

Small groups provide an opportunity for fellowship, Bible Study, and outreach in a comfortable setting with up to twelve people of similar ages, circumstances and/or interests. Small groups agree to learn to know God with their heads, love God with their hearts, and serve God with their hands. Meeting times and locations vary with each group.
