What are we doing? First Free makes urban disciples by experiencing life in Jesus.

Our Vision
Where we picture First Free in the Future: Sharing God’s story through compassion and conversation.

Arts Program
The mission of the Worship Arts at First Free is to create an environment where the Body of Christ can step into His presence to offer our worship, our voices, our songs, our hopes, our hurts, and our laments…all our acts of love to him in loving response to His goodness shown to us. In so doing, we are shaped into His image, so that we can reflect His image to each other as we gather, and to the world as we scatter to the places that God has called us. We do this by joining our unique individual voices in harmony with one another that rises as one voice to the Father. We do this by hearing and reading the revealed Word of God. We do this by praying for one another and for the world. We do this by creating and surrounding ourselves with Visual Art that reflects the beauty and creativity of God into our place of worship.
