‘Thursdays in the City’ church program offers individuals emotional support during pandemic

Free childcare available with registration

SAN ANTONIO – How is your emotional health right now?

With April being Stress Awareness Month, it’s a good time to take stock of how you’re feeling, especially during the pandemic, when a lot of folks have been in isolation, which can add to all the stress.

First Baptist Church of San Antonio has a series of in-person presentations and conversations this month to help deal with some of those mental challenges.

FBCSA will spend four weeks in April thinking through prominent issues surrounding mental health and exploring how the church can suffer with, live with and discover courage with one another as we face mental health challenges in ourselves and our loved ones.

Free childcare is available with registration online.

“We will indeed be looking at mental health,” said Brian Richardson, associate pastor of Pastoral Care in Single Adults at First Baptist Church. “Every week we will look at what mental health challenges actually are. And then we will look at resources to help families and people who are feeling all alone with mental health challenges.”

Thursdays in the City calendar run from 7- p.m. (Free parking in the orange lot)

  • April 8: COVID-Exhaustion and well-being
  • April 15: Understanding mental health challenges
  • April 22: Therapy, faith, medication and mental health
  • April 29: Families and mental health
