Hello! If your reading this page, I assume your wanting to know a little more about who we are at FBCG. Our goal is to know Jesus more in His word. We want to grow in our walk with Christ as well as develop relationships within the body of Christ! My goal as the youth pastor is to help raise our students in the faith. Jesus is calling each one of us into a life with Him. We learn more about that life as we study His word together and serve in His church.

FBC youth meets Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7pm and Sunday mornings at 9:30am.  

Our youth group also participates in many things throughout the year. We like to stay involved with things in our community and with other churches. We believe that the body of Christ is one, so we enjoy being a part of whatever the church is doing in the community of Gatesville and beyond. Our group attends summer church camp every year. 

Being a part of the body of Christ also allows you to use your talents and desires to serve. If you have any desire to serve as a volunteer with our youth department, please email me or call the church office using the number and email below!

We are always challenging ourselves to grow here at FBG. If you are looking for a place to be plugged in and serving, we’d love to have you! If you have any other questions or would just like to meet me, feel free to call our church office!


Branton Tennison,

Youth Pastor

Leigh Carroll


The Children's Ministry

We're dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment in which children of all ages will learn the basics of faith and build a strong foundation for the future.


Sunday School

FBCG takes the commitment to lay a strong biblical foundation in the early years seriously. Engaging Bible study leaders are eager to make the Bible come alive to kids of all ages - from infants through 6th grade.

Children’s Worship on Sunday Mornings

Nursey Care | Infant - 3 years old

Infants through 3 years of age are cared for during the worship service by a team of preschool staff, committed volunteers, and parents of preschoolers.

Children’s Worship | pre-k - 4th Grade

Holy Moly, Sermon 4 kids, and the Gospel Project are all curriculum used to study the Bible which incorporates video, interactive music, and learning actives in a manner that kids can grasp! Kids sit with their parents in corporate worship until they are dismissed to Children’s Worship. Parents pick up their kids in children’s area at the end of the Worship Service.

Wednesday Nights

On Wednesday nights, our children and preschoolers participate in Bible Activities, serving the community, and choir. It's age-appropriate, interactive learning that's fun for everyone, no matter their size. Typical schedule…

5:30-6:00 p.m. Dinner

6:00-6:15 p.m. Worship in Sanctuary with Youth Praise Band

6:30-7:00 p.m. Bible & Missions

Baby Dedication

Parents make a public commitment during corporate worship to raise their children in a manner which is consistent with the teachings of scripture. The church also makes the commitment to provide resources and guidance to parents in this journey. Baby dedication is typically scheduled on Mother’s Day.

Discipleship Class

This class is offered periodically in the year. It is an course where children who are wanting to have Jesus Christ come into their lives and be ready for Baptism. Please contact the Children’s minister to have your child be a part of this class.

New Believers Class

A five-week New Believers Class is periodically offered to children who have recently accepted Christ. Children learn the fundamentals of the Christian faith, how to share their own testimony, and ways they can continue to grow in their faith.
