BRIDGE MINISTRY OF BURTON, TEXAS

Our mission is to build a bridge between racial, cultural, educational, and economic divisions within the community.

Client Choice Pantry

 

In partnership with the Brazos Valley Food Bank, part of the Feeding America network, we operate a Client Choice Pantry at 601 North Main for qualified residents of Washington County.

Contact the Burton Bridge Ministry administrative office at 979-337-3370 for information and qualifications.

Senior Ministry

 

Senior citizens (55+) gather for fellowship, games and meals each Friday, except on holiday weekends. We meet at St. John's United Church of Christ, 516 N Colorado in Burton. Reservations are not required. The suggested donation is $4.

 

Volunteers also take hot meals to homebound senior citizens and the disabled every Friday. There is no charge for homebound delivery and this service is limited to the Burton area. Call 979-337-3370.

Children and Youth Ministry

 

Our one week summer day camp is scheduled for June 20-24, 2022. It will be held at Greenvine Baptist Church and Greenvine Emmanuel Lutheran Church. There is much joy in this ministry as children are introduced to God through games, snacks, worship, songs and fellowship. Beginning in April, 2022, pick up a registration form at Burton Elementary or call 979-337-3370. Scholarships are available for families who qualify.

Helping Hands

 

Our all-volunteer crew helps with minor home repairs, as well as the installation of accessibility ramps, for senior citizens, the disabled, and low income families.

 

We also connect homeowners with partner agencies that can help with weatherization, additional home repairs, or assistance with electric or propane bills. Call 979-337-3370 for more information.

Community

 

Fellowship events provide an opportunity to gather together, make new friends, and cherish existing relationships. Annual events include a free Thanksgiving dinner, Volunteer Appreciation, and Washington County Toys for Tots (at Christmas-time). When it becomes safe to gather in large groups we will plan our first Job Fair (on campus for graduating students and also off campus for job-seeking adults). In the interim, our bimonthly Lunch-and-Learn seminars help connect the unemployed with career opportunities.
