Welcome to Outreach at First Free!
Connecting with a new church can also mean connecting at a deeper level with the communities and partners it serves.
At First Free, we love McKeesport, White Oak, and their surrounding communities. We're committed to sharing God's love with our neighbors both directly and alongside community partners. These partners include:
Sonshine Community Ministries
Sonshine is a ministry of mercy and compassion to the needy and hurting of McKeesport. The ministry operates a downtown soup kitchen, clothing distribution center, tutoring, a 12-Step program, mentoring and special events throughout the year.
Hope House is an extension of Sonshine Community Ministries offering a local resource for pregnant women seeking life-affirming choices.
Pittsburgh Region International Student Ministries reaches out to international students and scholars attending downtown campuses. First Free partners with PRISM through a variety of ministry opportunities in order to reach out in Christian love to those who are very far from home. Forming relationships in a culturally-safe environment opens doors for introducing these students to Christ.
White Cross is a group of dedicated women who meet on the third Thursday of each to support the work of Tandala Hospital in the People’s Republic of Congo, a health facility operated by the Evangelical Free Church in America through its missions arm, Reach Global. The women sew layettes, bandages, boys’ shorts and girls’ dresses for needs of the people who come to the hospital.
The vision of First Free's Global Ministry, as an extension of our church’s vision, is to strategically partner with people and agencies committed to go beyond cultural boundaries in order to make and develop healthy disciples of Jesus and to develop and strengthen the church around the world.
We believe that global ministry is an integral part of the life of the local church. Believers should be engaged in prayer, sending, and being sent. Every member of the church has a part to play in the mission of Jesus to the world.
