The goal of our Youth Ministry is to work hand-in-hand with parents to encourage, equip, and establish teens in Christ. We strive to:
ENCOURAGE teens in their journey of faith and to live Godly lives despite the obstacles.
EQUIP them with applicable knowledge of God’s Word and a servant’s heart.
ESTABLISH a foundation of Jesus Christ for their lives and what a disciple of Jesus looks like on school campuses today.
We endeavor to help parents raise Christ-minded teenagers through the offering of various classes, retreats, mission opportunities, and resources.
About BYG Ministries
“BYG” stands for Belton Youth Group. We come together for a common reason and purpose, but we are much more than just a “group”. In addition to being a body of Christ-followers, we seek to use our group to minister to others around us in order that God may be glorified.
“Big God, Big Purpose, Big Impact” is our motto as a youth group and communicates what we are constantly trying to live out.
The youth program consists of teens in grades 6th-12th with the group divided into Middle School & High School classes. Middle School classes consist of grades 6th-8th and High School classes are grades 9th-12th.
Come join us for class!
Youth classes are held in the BYG Room, located beside the gym on the west side of the complex. Our class schedule is:
Sunday Morning – 9am in the Youth Center for middle school and high school students.
Wednesday Night – 6:30pm in the BYG Room for middle school and high school students.
Sunday Nights – We have various activities on Sunday nights including devotionals, area-wides, and small group. Please see the youth calendar for more details.
We begin each class time altogether in a general hanging out time. Teens are free to sit and talk, play ping pong/foosball, etc. until we gather for a time of singing, announcements, & prayer. After a brief worship, we divide into our Middle & High School classes for the duration of class time.
Don’t worry, we don’t have a dress code (However, we respectfully ask that you don’t wear anything too revealing). Casual, everyday clothing (i.e. shorts, t-shirt, jeans, etc.) is just fine.

Teaching students how to live Christ-like lives is the most important role of parents (Deuteronomy 6), and thus one of the most important jobs of any church is to equip and partner with parents towards this goal. We are growing our library of resources, but here are some available to you now:
BYG Ministries Parent Facebook Page – A closed group dedicated to sharing helpful parenting information
Tech Talk Tuesdays – Helpful conversation starters about social media, video game use, tech tips, latest research and more
