The open house will be at on Saturday, April 27 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm in the Activity Center. We will be serving barbequed/smoked meats as part of a buffet during the open house, so come hungry!


Our in-service spring baptism celebration will be April 28, and we'll be baptizing believers in both services. Story Night will be April 26 at 7 pm. If you haven't been baptized since trusting in Jesus, we encourage you to prayerfully consider doing so. Visit to sign up!
Food Truck Sunday
Celebrate after our baptism services on April 28 with a First Free Food Truck Sunday on April 28! We’ll have a variety of trucks in the north parking lot, plus a bounce house and other fun additions!

Help us spread the word - if you live in the neighborhood, grab a sign at one of the Welcome Centers, stick in your front yard, and invite your neighbors!

KampOut! is a 1-week high energy, non-stop excitement, traveling Christian day camp experience from Kanakuk for children ages 5-12. KampOut! will be at First Free 2 weeks, July 15-19 and 22-26! Every KampOut! Kamper will see and hear that God is a loving Father and wonderful Creator who loves them and desires for us to love others.
