Groups at First Free

Groups at First Free are a place to belong. Groups provide an environment for discipleship and study. They give opportunities for hospitality. They help us to grow and learn about God, the Bible, ourselves, and each other. Groups do not supplant the church, but they provide a setting where believers can more fully realize what it means to be the church. To learn more and find your fit, click the link below!

Holy Land Tour 2020

Our 2019 trip to Israel was amazing! We visited the Sea of Galilee, explored the ruins of Herod’s mountain palace in Masada, walked on the Mount of Olives, floated in the Dead Sea, and walked in the old city of Jerusalem where Jesus gave His life for us. Due to the incredibly high response from this trip and the number of people who wanted to go but could not this year, we’re considering another trip in the spring of 2020.If you are interested in joining us, please let us know at
