First United Methodist Church
Methodist services were conducted in Corpus Christi as early as 1846 as Federal troops gathered in preparation for what would become the Mexican American War. A Methodist Church was not established in the city until 1853, first meeting in a shellcrete structure. Early facilities served as a community center, school & emergency hospital until 1955 when new facilities were completed.
