Community Care Appointments

We schedule appointments on Tuesday afternoons for members and attendees of First Baptist Church as well as Isanti County residents. Contact the church office for more information at 763-689-1173 ext. 123.


GriefShare provides support to those who have lost loved ones. If you or someone you know has experienced the loss of a spouse, child, other family member or even a close friend, GriefShare can help you learn about the grieving process and move towards healing.


The support group meets for 13 weekly sessions. Each session includes time for watching a video with experts discussing grief and recovery subjects. A discussion follows
each viewing. The discussion period is non-threatening and if people do not feel like sharing, it is okay to just listen. Every session addresses subjects important to those experiencing grief. A GriefShare workbook is also provided. It is designed to help members take notes during the DVD screening and it includes exercises to complete during the week following each session. These exercises are intended to help each person move forward through their journey of grief.


For information about when the next GriefShare session begins, contact the church office at or 763.689.1173. You can also learn more about this ministry and register for the next session on the GriefShare website by clicking HERE.


DivorceCare is a ministry for those experiencing a troubled marriage, are separated, or divorced. At DivorceCare you will find help with these difficult situations from a support group designed to help you heal from the deep pain you are experiencing. We watch a video series featuring relationship experts on topics such as: the road to healing, anger, loneliness, depression, moving on, drawing closer to God.

DivorceCare will follow the same schedule as the Wednesday kids/student programming at church so the group will not be meeting on    MAR 15 or APR 5. Families with children K-12 are encouraged to utilize our kids and student ministry options. Contact the church office to register.
