College Ministries

United Campus Ministries (UCM)

First United Methodist Church is paired closely with the United Campus Ministry at Texas State. The UCM helps students grow spiritually in the love of Jesus, form authentic friendships, and discover God’s purpose in their lives. The UCM is located right next to campus and offers weekly Wednesday worship, small groups, service opportunity, retreats, and fun ministry events.

The UCM is just a couple blocks away from us and is led by our former associate pastor, Rev. Todd Salmi. We invite you to visit their website so you can get a better look at all the amazing things they are up to!

What they've been up to recently


We took time in our final worship of the semester to lay hands on our graduating students and pray over them. We are excited and hopeful for their future.

Beach Cleanup Mission Trip

We had a great weekend helping with the Texas Beach Cleanup in Corpus Christi. They worshiped on the beach, picked up 76* lbs of trash, and relaxed. It was a faithful way to care for God's creation on Earth Day weekend.

Finals Snacks

We want to thank the United Methodist Women for donating study snacks for students to help encourage them through finals.
