In the meantime, we encourage our church family to:

Worship. We will continue to stream our Classic and Contemporary services, available each Sunday morning. You can stream online at firstfreerockford.orgFacebookInstagram, or YouTube. Services are also available through the First Free Rockford apps for Google, Android and Apple devices.

Grow. Life Groups are encouraged to stay connected digitally through services such as ZoomSkypeFaceTime or Google Hangouts. Many Life Groups use the teaching resources found on RightNow Media, which also has resources for individuals and families to aid in spiritual growth.

Serve. Many in our community and congregation are frightened, angry or confused. We as Christ’s church can be agents of calmness, peace and reason. Please check on your neighbors and church family, especially the elderly. If someone is in need, share what you have. Always practice safety under local and state guidelines for social distancing.

Pray. Ask God to bring about an end to the spreading of this disease, and to protect our community and our world. You can also use our Coronavirus Prayer Guide.

Give. Many in our congregation already give their gifts and offerings through electronic means. If you would like to give online, you can do so here. We are also able to receive checks in the mail at 2223 N. Mulford Road, Rockford, IL 61107

Stay watchful. We will post all new information at, and also email, Facebook and Instagram. If you are not already receiving our weekly church emails, scroll to the bottom of this page and click “Subscribe.” You can also call the church at 815-877-7046.
