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 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 central to our life and faith.
Today you will find both a tradtional and contemporary community of faith in South Central Texas. Our families live in the Plains, Praries, Hill Country, and the growing metropolitan areas of 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!
There will be no Sunday School held in the month of August. Classes will resume in September.
Thanks, Christian Education Committee
