Our mission is to inspire and disciple youth to live as free people."Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor." - 1 Peter 2:16-17
During this season, The Free has transitioned to going live every Friday on YouTube @7pm. We also have a Zoom hangout after each service where students can get connected with other youth and leaders. The Free will also host virtual game nights for the youth! To stay up to date, make sure to check out the “Connect” section which has links to our social media and a way to get subscribed to our texting service. Please reach out to us if you have any questions!
