“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

– Matthew 28:19

No matter your age, we have a place for you. From Sunday School to different creative outlets and care ministries, we know that we can help you feel like an integral part of the fabric of our church.

Please contact Karen Andrews with any questions you may have about our adult ministries.

Adult Ministry Opportunities

Sunday School

Sunday School classes are the foundation of our Adult Ministries. We have two Sunday School hours, 9:45 and 11 am. Please contact Karen Andrews with any questions you may have.

Small Groups

Many Christ-followers prefer the casual and intimate setting of a small group. Small groups are typically longer in length, so members can 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.

Come, Wade, Dive!

Come, Wade, Dive is First United Methodist Church’s discipleship program. We are so proud of the growth and participation in this program, and are excited about our upcoming studies!

In the fall and spring, we offer a variety of classes for disciples of all levels. If you are new to the faith, then our “Come” classes will be a good fit for you. Ready to wade out into the water of discipleship? Then check out our “Wade” classes. If you feel you are ready to go deeper in your faith walk, then our “Dive” classes are for you.

Classes begin September 8, 2019 with our BACK TO BASICS series.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system.

This important ministry’s congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

If you would like to know more about becoming a Stephen Minister or feel like you could benefit from visiting with a Stephen Minister, please contact the church office or Karen Andrews.

United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women is the 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). Circle meetings are third Tuesdays at 9:30.

Shawl Ministry

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 distributed.

Please contact Karen Andrews if you would like to be a part of this ministry.
