Members Meeting
Sunday, April 18, 6 pm, Worship Center
Plan on attending our upcoming Members Meeting to stay informed on what’s happening at First Free. Agenda items include staff, elder, and financial reports; as well as updates on the Renew 20-21 project and our worship pastor search.  

Parking Lot Security
As the weather gets warmer, church parking lots are more often targeted for break-ins. It is very important that you not leave any bags, valuable items, or garage remote openers visible in your car. Our on-duty police officers also recommend not keeping papers or mail with your home address listed in the glove compartment or out in the open.

Recognizing Our Graduates
Do you have a graduate in your family this year? We will be recognizing 2020-2021 high school and college graduates in the bulletin on May 16. If you have a name you’d like included, you may submit details online or call the church office by Monday, May 10.

A Closer Look
Begins May 2, 11:00 am
Take a closer look at First Free! This 3-week intro class covers our mission—what we do; our methods—how we make disciples; and our message—what we believe. If you’re looking for ways to engage in the life of our community, this is a great next step. Our next session begins Sunday, May 2. Please register online to let us know you’ll be coming. Questions? Feel free to contact Connections Pastor Jordan Green.
