Week of Prayer

Each day of the week starting Sunday, January 17th we will be posting on our Facebook page specific areas of our church ministry that you can pray for. Then, on Wednesday, January 20th, we will have an all-church prayer meeting from 7–8 p.m. via Zoom.


Creekside & Velocity on Sundays

Starting Sunday, January 31st, in-person classes for Creekside Friends and Velocity Student Ministries will resume at 10 a.m. An on-line option will also be offered.


Give to the One Fund

Our Christmas Challenge: Spend Less and Give! This Christmas, as a church, we are collecting donations for the One Fund—a Minneapolis based organization that exists to support the work of local African American churches and ministries that—due to historic inequities—have been disproportionately affected by the recent crisis in our Twin Cities. Our goal is to collectively raise $10,000 by Christmas Eve. You can make a financial gift electronically by going to our One Fund giving page, or you can also give by mailing a check to First Free Church and mark your gift, “One Fund”. For more information, see our One Fund page, and the Be The Church One Fund page.
