Welcome to First Baptist Richardson! We are excited to be resuming live Sunday morning worship services on September 13th. In order to keep you safe and follow the recommendations of our leaders, we have put together health guidelines for coming back together. In the meantime, please join us as we worship together online every Sunday at 10:00AM and 5:00PM. You can view past services here.
All other on-campus activities are currently postponed until further notice. If you have questions or would like to know more about our church, please don’t hesitate to email email@example.com or visit our connect page.
God bless you, and we can’t wait to see you again soon.
We will update policies and procedures to reflect COVID-19 safety protocols when we plan to return to campus.
-When you come to our campus, you can check your child in at a kiosk located in the Children’s Building welcome area. If your child in 1st-6th grade will be staying after Kids Worship for Sunday School, they will need a second sticker to indicate they are staying.
-Before dropping your child off at their classroom, place the adhesive-backed name-tag on their clothing after it prints from the check-in kiosk.
-Place the “receipt” copy on your own clothing as identification when you pick-up your child.
-You can pick-up your child directly from their classroom. No access to the Children’s or Preschool area is allowed without this receipt.
CELEBRATION WORSHIP CHOIR
Celebration Worship Choir leads in worship every Sunday morning in our 9:30 Service.
This group is made up of volunteers who have a heart to serve, love the Lord, and are committed to using their talents to lift up the name of Jesus in worship and at CAROLS each Christmas.
Rehearsals are Wednesday nights 6:45-8:20pm in Worship East.
Wednesdays are full of energy and excitement as we prepare both spiritually and musically to be our best! Andy often says that Choir & Orchestra is More than Music – We are Family.
If you have a passion for worship and a desire to help lead the church in praise, there is a place for you in the Choir.
The Celebration Orchestra, directed by Kent Tidwell, is a talented group of instrumentalists that share their musical gifts, along with our choir, to lead our church in worship.
Rehearsals are Wednesday nights at 7pm in the Worship Center.
Contact Andy Swanner to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org
Complimentary childcare is available with pre-registration.
PRODUCTION AND TECH TEAM
The production and tech team at First Baptist Richardson is responsible for supporting our pastors and worship ministries create meaningful services every week. There are various ways to serve in this team, including video production, sound, lighting, and lyrics (Pro Presenter). If you are interested in learning more about serving in this area, please contact either Josiah Warneking or Andy Swanner for more details.
We have one of the best youth music programs around, where students get to use their gifts and talents to glorify God. Student Choir & Orchestra is led by our Worship Pastor, Andy Swanner. The youth music program is a great way for students to connect to others and to God in a very powerful way. This is also a way that our students are involved in the life of our entire congregation by participating in Sunday morning worship services and special events such as Carols. Please contact Andy at ASwanner@FBRichardson.org with any questions about these programs.

As parents, we are presented with a tremendous opportunity. Each child is a gift from God, and He has a plan for each child He has created. Part of that plan includes you as parents. Our church desires to partner with you in your new adventure. FB Richardson has created a spiritual development plan that is available to help you, your marriage and your children. We are calling this plan the Family Covenant Plan.
A covenant is a promise or agreement; a contract. The Family Covenant Plan represents a covenant between the church and the family as well as a rededication of the marriage covenant in light of the parenting responsibility. This service is held at either the 9:30 or 10:50 Worship Service.
“Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth”
– Malachi 2:15
