Children & Family

Welcome to First Free Kids!

Our goal at First Free is that through age appropriate teaching, worship, activities and events your kids will discover and deepen their own relationship with Jesus.

Our Values

Several values guide our ministry to children and their families:

  • Christ Centered
    We are committed to presenting a Christ-centered focus in the midst of a “me- centered” culture.
  • Parent Connected
    We aim to partner with parents who have the primary honor and responsibility for the spiritual nurture of their children.
  • Biblically Based
    Our curriculum is Scripture based, and we encourage Scripture memory.
  • Age Appropriate
    We help children apply the truth they learn to their unique circumstances and stage of life.
  • Loving Atmosphere
    We show love to every child because all children are made in the image of God.

Summer Blast & Pop

Summer Blast is a FREE high energy, weeklong event designed for your 6-11 year old. Join us for a week of learning what it means to be a best friend by looking at our ultimate best friend, Jesus, through drama, music, teaching, and games. Each child will receive a t-shirt, prizes and lasting friendships!

Looking for something for your 4 & 5 year old? Summer Pop runs at the same time offering a slower paced experience. (Don't worry— the t-shirt, prizes, and friendships are still included!).

You can register your child today for Summer Blast & Pop 2021 here.

Health & Safety

Your child’s safety is one of our top priority’s. Upon entering our Children’s Ministry wing, you’ll meet lots of smiling volunteers—all of whom have background checks. Your child may not notice this, but the entire wing is secure and monitored.

When you register your child, you will receive a unique security tag which you will need to show when you pick up your child. Additionally, if your child has any allergies or special needs, just let us know when you register.

Join Our Team

Every week we mobilize dozens of volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of children. If you might like to become a member of our team, please review the following:
