Financial Peace University

Does money stress you out? You’re not alone! 78% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. But, you don’t have to be a math wiz or make 6-figures to win with money. You just need a plan, and Financial Peace University can help! FPU consists of a short nine-week video curriculum taught by financial expert Dave Ramsey, plus small group discussion time. Financial Peace University runs for 9 weeks on Sunday mornings (February 2 – March 29). If you have any questions, email financialpeace@efree.org.

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!
