Pastoral Care

Bearing One Another's Burdens

The Pastoral Care Ministry of First Baptist Richardson is committed to meeting the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of our members and their families. The following is a list of ministries available to help meet this goal.


A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.
