Mission Statement: To provide individuals experiencing memory loss and their caregivers with a gathering place of love, hope, and dignity in an encouraging Christian environment.
The Gathering Place ministry at Houston’s First Baptist Church (HFBC) is designed to meet the needs of adults diagnosed with early to moderate stages of memory loss due to dementia, stroke, or injury.
Participants enjoy engaging social interaction, exercise, food, and fellowship – all in a loving safe environment. The ministry is open to HFBC families, as well as anyone in the greater Houston area.
In partnership with Interfaith CarePartners, HFBC offers The Gathering Place as a support for those experiencing the loss of independence. Such loss is a common occurrence in the “faith overcoming loss” phase of life as identified in HFBC’s Milestones framework.
If you are interested in participating in The Gathering Place, contact the Pastoral Care office at HFBC. You will be asked to complete a registration form that provides information about the Care Partner wishing to participate
A member of our team will visit with the Care Partner in his or her home to determine if The Gathering Place is the right fit. If so, the Caregiver along with the Care Partner will be invited to attend the first meeting.
