Inscription. Methodists in the Manchaca community began meetings as early as 1871 when circuit riders held worship services in the old rock church owned by the Cumberland Presbyterian congregation. Although this fellowship was not organized formally until 1874, the Rev. Sam A. Whipple was recorded as the pastor of an 80-member congregation in 1873. Church members later worshiped at this site in a wood frame building until current sanctuary was built in 1956-57. For more than 100 years, Manchaca United Methodist Church has provided significant service and leadership to this community.
 
Erected 1994 by the Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 14228.)
