Affinity Groups usually focus on a specific need or objective. They typically meet at church, and are open to any who want to drop in and join. If you are interested in one of the Affinity Groups listed below, contact the facilitator to find out when the group will next meet.
Wednesday mornings from 9:30–11:00 a.m. at the church
WNBS is a weekly Bible study for women of all ages. Each week we study God's word, discuss our homework, enjoy fellowship and pray for one another. We have approximately 50 women who attend the study and we divide that number down into small groups of 8-10. The only requirement to participate in WNBS is that you believe that the Bible is worth studying…and we trust God to do the rest! Free childcare provided. Questions? Visit the WNBS page.
Fridays, twice a month, from 9:30–11:30 a.m. at the Church
MOPS is a place to make new friends, discover a wealth of helpful hints and smarter strategies when dealing with the challenges of motherhood. Our program offers a morning of food, fun, creative activities, guest speakers on relevant topics such as parenting, relationships, marriage, and more! For more information visit the MOPS website
Fridays, 6:15–7:30 a.m., at the Church in Room 103
Men United is a group open to all men that seeks to train men to be who God created them to be through biblical teaching, accountability, and closer connection to Christ. For more information or to sign up, visit the Men United page.
Second Saturday each month, 9–10:30 a.m. at the Church
SoulShare is a men’s fellowship, open to all ages, in which we share a breakfast—sometimes gourmet with our resident chefs Doug Nelson and Craig Hucek, sometimes continental and basic—and discussion. For more information, visit the Men's SoulShare page.
Sundays, twice a month, from 2–4 p.m. at the Church in Room 103
The Expressions support group is similar to other small groups at First Free. It is a place where people “do life” together: supporting and encouraging each other, praying for each other, serving, and seeking Biblical wisdom together. However, membership in the group is dedicated to people dealing with chronic illnesses ranging from ongoing physical disease to mental illness, such as chronic depression or anxiety. Using art is one way we foster talking about difficult things and often generates delightful observations and discussions. All art materials are provided, and there is no cost to attend. For more information, see the Expressions event page. If you are interested in joining, please talk to one of the Faith Community Nurses or Delores Huanca (email@example.com).
Fridays, from 9:30–11:30 a.m. at the Church
The Griefshare Group offers help and support after the death of a loved one. Griefshare is a Christian based weekly seminar and support group designed to help you rebuild your life.

For more information, or to sign up, see our GriefShare page.
