Christoval in Tom Green County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Christoval United Methodist Church
The records of the Christoval Methodist congregation date from 1923. In 1926, with the Rev. J.E. Young as pastor, the Methodists erected and occupied a red brick structure at the corner of Second and McKee streets. Fundraising projects at several Fourth of July celebrations helped to defray the cost of the building loan. In early years church women organized the Women’s Missionary Society. Their first major project was to raise money for the Methodist’s orphan’s home. A men’s nondenominational Sunday school class was established in 1951. A parsonage was built in 1947 at a cost of $1,200; an educational building was erected in 1956. Further additions and renovations were made as needed, including the construction of three classrooms given in memory
With continuing activities of worship and community service including an annual barbecue hosted by the men’s nondenominational Sunday school class, the Christoval United Methodist Church carries on in the traditions of its founders.
