Volunteer at First Baptist Richardson
At First Baptist Richardson, we believe everyone is called to serve others. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities and we want to help you find your place.
“There are diversities of gifts...and there are differences (different kinds) of ministries...but the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all...but one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills...but now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”
1 Corinthians 12:4–5, 7, 18, 27
Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
We Read Together
We Read Together is Richardson ISD’s volunteer initiative to champion early literacy skills for students. Students who enter school lacking reading readiness or who don’t read at grade level need additional interventions and resources to catch up to their peers. We know community volunteers and mentors play a pivotal role in advancing literacy skills, and helping more students learn how to read, write, and play.
RISD volunteers helped 85 students last school year and 84% of kindergarten students in the program met or exceeded their MAP growth goal for the year. We Read Together is helping close this achievement gap. We have a great group of volunteers who logged almost 2,000 volunteer hours. We need MORE volunteers for the 23-24 school year to grow the program. Click the link below to register to become a We Read Together partner!
We will have a training session on October 1 at Noon in Fellowship Hall.
