What we’re all about:
Our goal is to help children get anchored to Jesus & for them to share Him with their friends. At First free we love to partner with parents to help kids grow in Jesus.

Preschoolers engage in Bible stories, crafts, and play time. There are consistent teachers who use the HeartShaper curriculum by Standard Publishing while they get to know and love the children! They rotate monthly and transition between the two worship gatherings. The children are encouraged to stay in their classrooms the entire morning and snacks are given at the end of the first hour. Preschoolers need to be checked in and parents will be texted if needed.
Creekside Bible Time: Grades K-6

The students* meet in individual grade levels for “Bible Time” where they will have 1 or 2 consistent teachers who teach from the Discipleland curriculum. This is a time of building relationships with peers while establishing a firm foundation of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus!
K-3 parents must pick up their children at 10:00. 4-6th graders are dismissed on their own to go to fellowship time.
