Wimberley United Methodist Church provides a wide range of programs to help meet the religious and social needs of our church members.
Adults Serving Christ (A.S.C.) Class
Serving God is a fundamental part of walking Christ's path. The Adults Serving Christ (A.S.C.) Sunday School class focuses on the path of spiritual growth, both personally and as a group in the body of Christ. The A.S.C. class focuses on inspirational studies about being disciples for Christ in the world around us, with the ultimate goal of finding ways we can serve Christ together. If you are looking for spiritual growth and encouragement as we all find our place in the body of Christ, and support as you take your faith and turn it into action… this class is where you belong. The A.S.C. Class meets upstairs in the Education Building.
Our Lenten study is He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado. Max Lucado invites you to examine the cross, contemplate its purpose, and celebrate its significance in He Chose the Nails. Go ahead and linger on the hill of Calvary and see just how much God did to win your heart.

The Agape Sunday school class is made up of mostly retired but several generations of eclectic people with diverse backgrounds. We settled in Wimberley because of the lifestyle, charm, peace and beauty. We come from many different backgrounds so there are many skill sets within our class. We enjoy being part of other groups within our church and in the Wimberley community. We set our own study courses taught by gifted teachers within our class and, at times, invite other teachers within and out of our church. We are an active class of travelers, thinkers, doers and followers of Christ. A scholarship fund, funded by Honorariums/Memorials, for those graduating high school seniors in our church who are university bound, is available. We also fund many other entities, within and out of our church. Our signature is to be the hands and feet of Christ and have fun while doing it! Visit us once and you’ll be considered a member! Questions? Call Class President Rogers Holt at 409-223-2252.
Faith Meets Life Class
This is perhaps the most eclectic class available: singles, couples, older members, younger members, and non- church members participate. The group concentrates on contemporary topics of Christian faith and mission and how they apply to everyday life. Study covers recommended books and selected authors, as well as time devoted specifically to the study of the Biblical text. This class also directs the local day laborer outreach ministry. The Faith Meets Life class meets in the Education Building, second door on the right.
Our Lenten study is Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus by Jim Wallis. We will begin on Sunday, February 9 with introductions, and the first lesson will begin on Sunday, February 16.
Writing in response to our current “constitutional crisis,” New York Times bestselling author and Christian activist Jim Wallis urges America to return to the tenets of Jesus once again as the means to save us from the polarizing bitterness and anger of our tribal nation.
In Christ in Crisis, Jim Wallis provides a path of spiritual healing and solidarity to help us heal the divide separating Americans today. Building on “Reclaiming Jesus”—the declaration he and other church leaders wrote in May 2018 to address America’s current crisis—Wallis argues that Christians have become disconnected from Jesus and need to revisit their spiritual foundations. By pointing to eight questions Jesus asked or is asked, Wallis provides a means to measure whether we are truly aligned with the moral and spiritual foundations of our Christian faith.
