First Free Email Bulletin

October 22, 2021

Dear First Free Church Family,

Our mission is straightforward: First Free exists to guide people into becoming healthy followers of Jesus Christ. Likewise, our vision is to see people know God's life-changing power and love, grow in community, and live out his truth daily. We believe that God can transform anyone and anything for His glory. 

That's the idea behind our October sermon series, "Changed Lives." This Sunday morning, at 10:45, we'll continue this series, exploring practical and biblical ways to help our neighbors and the next generation discover and deepen their relationship with Jesus. 

Don't forget to join us at 9:30 am for our new Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) options, Discover for those new and newer to First Free, Breakfast Bible Bunch for our students, and Sunday School for children. 

Remember that we rescheduled our couples' hayride for this Saturday, October 23. And don't forget to pack your shoebox for Operation Christmas Child and share Christmas Fest invite cards with trick-or-treaters later this month! 

Finally, be sure to visit our new and updated website ( for an up-to-date ministry calendar. While there, you can learn more about the events and ministries listed above, read our latest blog posts, and more!

We can't wait to see you this Sunday! Come worship and bring a friend! 

You're loved. Don't forget it.

-Kevin Labby, Lead Pastor
