Friedens is a landmark church located in the farmland of historic Geronimo, Texas. Friedens United Church of Christ has faithfully served the Geronimo, Seguin, New Braunfels, and San Marcos communities of Texas since 1896. The church was founded deep in the heart of Texas by German pioneers who settled the land as farmers and ranchers.
Friedens means "Peace" in the German language, and the Peace of Christ is at the heart of our life and faith.
Today you will find both a tradtional and contemporary community of faith comprised of the diverse culture of South Central Texas. Our families live in the Plains, Praries, Hill Country, and the growing metropolitan areas between San Antionio and Austin.
Please take a look at the information on this website, and even better, come see us! If you have any questions about any of the ministries of Friedens do not hesitate to contact us. Blessings!
Orders are being taken from Women of Friedens members for poinsettias.
If you would like to honor or thank someone living or deceased with a poinsettia, please fill out an order form and return it to the church office. The poinsettias will be placed in the Sanctuary as decorations for the Christmas season. The cost is $12.00 for each poinsettia. Checks may be made payable to the Women's Guild. Deadline for placing an order is December 11, 2016. Please take your poinsettia home after the service on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2016 or they will be donated to residents in our assisted care centers.
PLEASE PRINT: (WE WANT TO BE SURE OF SPELLING OF EACH NAME! THANKS!)
