We also wanted to revisit our church, First Baptist Richardson, and we really felt like that warranted its own episode.
A few months ago, I talked with Ivy Lassiter, the children’s pastor at church, and this time I sat down, over Skype of course, with Ron Evans, the missions pastor at First Baptist Richardson.
We’ve heard Ron preach at church several times, and when you see him or talk with him, you immediately hear his heart for this city. He has a passion for connecting our church and our community, and it comes through in every conversation.
It was so encouraging to talk with him in the midst of this crisis and hear that same conviction for connecting our church and community even though the methods have changed.
We’ve mentioned this before, but if you are looking for a church home, we can’t recommend First Baptist Richardson enough. It is truly our family’s favorite thing about this city.
And, right now, you can visit online. No pressure, no awkward small talk. Just check out the service online at First Baptist Richardson.
The people there love God and love others, and it really just doesn’t get much better than that.
