Heart 2 Heart is a ministry of San Antonio’s First Baptist Church and was founded on two simple principles: We all experience brokenness sometime in our life; and There is healing in God’s Word. Divorce Care Will anyone accept you after divorce? This group will. Take steps toward courage and wholeness with those who know how deeply divorce can cut. Considering Forgiveness Does forgiveness mean excusing harmful behavior? Is forgiveness necessary? Explore these difficult questions in a group that won't insult your dignity by minimizing or downplaying the hurt you have known. Grief Share Grief is a burden too heavy for anyone’s shoulders to bear alone. In this fellowship, you’ll find a group that stands by one another when the loss you’ve known bends you to the ground. Men's Freedom Group (meets year round on Tuesdays) We are a Christ-centered, 12 step self-help group providing a safe and confidential setting (apart from other H2H groups) for men recovering from sexual addiction. Our goal is to provide you with the support of fellow recovery travelers with once weekly meetings year-round. Journey to Restoration This caring ministry creates a safe space for those who during childhood were abused, sexually, physically, emotionally, verbally or by neglect.
All groups are open to the community. You do not need to be a member of the church.

Grief Camps are a great resource to help normalize individual reactions to grief by allowing children to interact with peers who have suffered similar loss. Grief camps engage children in therapeutic activities that incorporate art, writing, music and movement to help process feelings of grief. Children who attend grief camps learn to develop healthy coping skills while restoring a sense of normalcy with peers and surviving family members. The Center currently offers two different camp experiences for children, Camp Heroes and Hermann Sons Life Camp. Your child may benefit from our program if you notice they are experiencing one or more of the following: • have trouble concentrating in class • come to your office often to seek attention, but have difficulty explaining why • withdraw from peers or social activities they once enjoyed • express frequent somatic complaints (headache or stomach ache) • have increased anger outbursts
Camp Heroes is ideal for any child: • Ages 7-11 years • Currently enrolled in an elementary school • Have experienced the death of a family member within the last two years Please keep in mind that camp priority is given to first time campers.
Camp Heroes is held twice during the year. (March and November)Please keep in mind that camp priority is given to first time campers.
We believe that each person’s journey through grief is unique and therefore deserving of a distinctive approach to healing. Our goal is to help children, adolescents and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief, stabilize and preserve family relationships, and develop healthy coping skills after the death of a loved one. From this philosophy, we offer private therapy sessions, for both the individual and family members, who are experiencing or anticipating the death of a loved one. Our homelike facility accentuates the healing process as clients receive psychotherapy and choose expressive art modalities such as art, music, poetry, dance/movement, drama, writing in a tranquil and supportive environment. Our specialties are: • Play therapy for children • Sandplay for all ages • Expressive art therapy for all ages • For more information on our Peer Grief Support Groups, click here. All counselors are state licensed mental health professionals or graduate level therapists working under supervision.
