Community Care Appointments

Grief is real and we need help to get through it. First Baptist sponsors a Christian-based GriefShare group that is open to the community and 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.


There are 13 sessions that include time for watching a video with experts discussing grief and recovery subjects. A discussion follows each viewing that is non-threatening. If you do not feel like sharing, it is okay to just listen. A workbook is also provided with a suggested donation of $20. It is designed to help members take notes during the DVD screening and 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.

Contact the church office at 763.689.1173

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 sessions are JAN 24 - MAY 8, 2024 and follows the same schedule as the Wednesday kids/student fall programming at church. Families with children K-12 are encouraged to utilize our kids and student ministry options. Contact the church office to register.
