Adult Ministry Opportunities
Adult Sunday School
Sunday School classes are a foundation of our Adult Ministries. We offer both long-term classes and short-term special study series. Topics vary based on class desires and relevant publications. Meeting times and days vary throughout the week and all are welcome – regular congregants, visitors and new members. Please utilize the contact form below to request additional information on current studies, or visit our Find a Group page.
Many Christ-followers enjoy the casual and intimate setting of a small group. Small groups typically meet together for several months or even years, so members get to know one another on a deeper level. Our church offers several small groups with various formats, so if you are interested in knowing more, joining an existing group, or starting your own small group, please contact Karen Andrews.
United Women in Faith
United Women in Faith (formerly known as United Methodist Women) is the world’s largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders, and advocating for justice.
Members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.
The First United Methodist Church New Braunfels’ general meeting takes place on the first Tuesday of the month in the Assembly Room (Room 118). Small group Circle meetings are third Tuesdays at 9:30 or 2:00. We also have a newer evening Circle that meets on 2nd Wednesday at 6:30pm.
The Shawl Ministry of First United Methodist Church 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 2 pm in the Parlor. Finished shawls are blessed with prayers before they are gifted to those who are facing life challenges, as well as for new babies.
We hope adults of all ages and areas of interest will find ways to become more deeply involved in the Discipleship process at FUMC. Visit a Sunday School class, be part of a short-term study, join (or help begin) an ongoing small group, offer to lead a Bible study, participate in mission and outreach projects.
