Youth Group Pancake Fundraiser—Today!

The Youth Group is serving pancakes in the Fellowship Hall 9/5/21. This fundraiser will help cover the expenses from this past summer’s Apex Mission Trip to Kansas City. During the breakfast, you will also hear an update from the team and see photos from the trip. The suggested donation is $4/Person or $10/Family.

Fall Kickoff: Next Sunday!

On Sunday, September 12th we will kick off the fall ministries of 1st E Free! The morning service will be followed by Sunday school for all ages beginning at 10:30am. After Sunday school, we will have an extended time for churchwide fellowship through food and fun for the kids including inflatables—all right here at the church.

Church Directory Photos:

We will be taking free family portraits for the online church directory today and next Sunday. Please meet in the café area after church to get these pictures taken.

We are using an online church directory which is available for smartphones.  To begin using the directory, please follow the steps below.
  • Find and install the Instant Church Directory from your app store.
