Our Youth Programs 


BBAY (Burton Bridge Area Youth) is open to all youth in Grades 9-12.  It meets in the gymnasium of the Burton Elementary School every Wednesday from 6 - 8 pm.  We watch movies, play games, study the bible, and eat.  Join us. This activity has adult supervision.


Camp Hope is a summer camp open to children and teens.  Children in grades 1-6 are campers while 7th and 8th graders are our junior staffers.  High School students can apply for a Camp Hope staff position.  Camp Hope was held at our Greenvine churches (Greenvine Baptist and Greenvine Emmanual Lutheran) from June 18-29.  More than 40 children enjoyed bible study, crafts, and games.  Camp Hope will return in 2019.


Our Senior Program


Seniors (55+) are invited for fellowship and games on Fridays starting at 10 am.  We meet in the Family Life Center at St. John's United Church of Christ, 516 N. Colorado Street, Burton.  Our local EMS staff visit regularly to offer minor services, such as blood pressure measurement.  Lunch is served at noon for $3. For information on meal deliveries for homebound seniors, contact the Bridge Ministry Office at 979-289-2223.

We need volunteers to make home deliveries

and cook some of our senior meals!

Helping Hands


This ministry helps the needy in our community make minor repairs to their homes.  We can build ramps to provide accessibility to homes.  Thanks to The UM Army who made improvements to 12 homes in June 2018. To apply for assistance, contact the Burton Bridge Ministry Office.
