College Ministry at First United Methodist 

We are dedicated to helping Texas State students grow their spiritual relationship with God, share Christ through service in the community, and build authentic friendships to last a lifetime.

Fellowship and Bible Study

We feature several small group for college students to find fellowship and explore the Bible, listen to different perspectives, encourage one another, and making faith relevant to our everyday lives. 

Faith in the City | Wednesdays 8:15pm

Join us for free food, friendship, and faith exploration as we meet each week in various places around Downtown San Marcos. Places we meet include Root Cellar Bakery, Gil's Broiler for Manske Rolls, Torchy's, Rhea's Ice Cream and more.

Riverside Bible Study is a new student-led study that will meet on Sunday evenings at the San Marcos River. For more details, contact Ethan Rodriguez at

Service and Mission

Loving God means loving action with our neighbors. Every month we offer a selection of various mission and community service project. YOU are invited to help us out!

We also support, an official mission ministry of First United Methodist Church, with many ways for students and people in the community to connect with ways to help!

Worship and Special Events

We gather for worship with Holy Communion, we help lead worship for local and visiting youth groups, we plan ministry events to reach out to other students, and we give students an opportunity to take a leadership role in growing their personal faith and sharing that faith with other.

Fun and Friendship

We also know that college is a time to make new friends and have fun! We enjoy evenings around town and afternoon on the river.  Our faithful friendship gives us a chance to relax, to distress from the anxiety of school projects and exams, and to enjoy all that God has given us in the beautiful San Marcos area.
