Historic Friedens Church is located in the beautiful farmland of 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 traditional and contemporary community of faith comprised of the diverse culture of South Central Texas. Our families live on the farms and ranches of historic Geronimo, and in the new neighborhoods of the growing metropolitan areas between San Antonio and Austin.

Be part of history! Come celebrate 124 years of faith at Friedens Church in beautiful rural Geronimo with engaging pastors Dave and Sonja Phillips!  You will fall in love with this welcoming community. Sunday services include childcare for ages 5 and under.

  • Important Update from Friedens Church

    Dear Friedens Family,

    Due to the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus and in efforts to protect the health and well-being of all in our congregation and community, the Church Council has decided that all in-person worship services and activities will remain cancelled through Saturday, May 2nd. FELA will also remain closed during this time. In person worship services and church activities will tentatively resume beginning Sunday, May 3rd. FELA will tentatively reopen beginning Monday, May 4th.

    This has been an extremely difficult decision, as it means further time apart as a congregation, especially during the celebration of Easter Sunday. However, we feel this is a necessary safeguard considering the number of confirmed cases in Guadalupe County and the surrounding areas continues to rise. The President and Governor have also extended social distancing guidelines through the end of April, and the Governor has extended school closures in Texas until May 4th.

    We will continue to monitor this situation closely. Please reach out to me with your questions and concerns at 830-481-6011. Or to reach out to the Pastors, please call the church office at 830-303-7729 and follow instructions on how to contact them. And continue to keep one another in your prayers.


    Kyle Bading

    Council President, on behalf of the Friedens Church Council
