Online Prayer Gathering

In troubling times, prayer is an avenue to peace, comfort, and hope. Pastor John Richardson will guide this interactive experience as we pray for our community, our nation, and our world. “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thess. 5:16-18 We’re hosting another online prayer gathering on Thursday, April 16, at 7 pm.

Good Friday Services

On April 10, we will be gathering together online and remembering the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our salvation through an intimate time of meditative music, devotion, and communion. Before the service, we will send out instructions on how to prepare communion at your home. Times (online services only): 2 pm, 4 pm, 6:30 pm

Easter Sunday Services

Join us online on Sunday, April 12, at 9:00 am or 10:45 am for a joyful celebration of Jesus’ resurrection and the hope that we have in Him. Even with all of the craziness and uncertainty in the world, we still have a lot to celebrate. Jesus’ work on the cross is not uncertain. His resurrection is not uncertain. Our hope in Him is not uncertain. Let’s rejoice! Times (online services only): 9 am & 10: 45 am

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!
