The Thorn Tour - Volunteers Needed!

The Thorn is a visually dynamic and heart-stirring theatrical portrayal of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are excited to be bringing this production to First Free to draw in people from our neighborhood who may hear the gospel for the first time in our building!  A production of this size requires quite a few volunteers, so if you would like to help share the gospel and be a part of reaching out to our city and our community, we'd love to have you on board! Whether on stage with the cast or behind the scenes making it all happen, you will be taking part in a larger than life show with a larger than life mission. We need adults, teens, and kids in all kinds of roles, from on-stage talent to set up and take down. Learn more by clicking below!

Spring Clean Up Day
Expand
Join us on April 18 for our spring clean up day!

This spring we’re having a bigger clean-up day than usual as we need to focus a lot of energy on the Becker property! Our vision for this property is a park-like setting where ministry can happen, but there’s a lot of work to be done before that can happen.

We want to make this the biggest church workday fellowship we’ve ever had! There will be lunch and snacks provided. Please join us at 8 am on the north patio for prayer to start our day.

Baptism

We'll be baptizing believers in both services on Sunday, April 26. If you're a follower of Jesus who hasn't yet been baptized, we encourage you to take this opportunity to do so! You can learn more and sign up at efree.org/baptism.

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!
