First Free Rockford Classic Service

Classic | 8:30am

Our classic worship service is comprised of elements that have passed the test of time in our church. Worship music is led by Renee Cooper and accompanied by our praise band, choir, vocal ensembles, organ, orchestra and bell choir. The service lasts 75 minutes and is an inspiring time of worship and teaching!

Contemporary Worship

Contemporary | 10:30am

Our contemporary worship service is a time of dynamic expression through high energy music, teaching, and technical arts. Worship music is led by a collective of area musicians and artists. The service lasts 75 minutes and is an inspiring time of worship and teaching!

Cafe Venue

Cafe Venue | 10:30am

If you’re looking for a casual environment where you can sit down with a hot cup of coffee or espresso worship to acoustic music, and listen to the sermon in a coffee shop like space, the Cafe Venue is for you.  The Cafe Venue meets in the lower level of our Main Campus during the 10:30am service, and was designed to create a service that would allow additional space for prayer and conversation while still participating in the traditional elements of a worship service, like musical worship, communion, and the teaching of God’s Word.  The sermon is viewed via a live video feed, but all other elements are live in the room.   The service lasts 75 minutes.

Sunday Evening Praise

Sunday Evening Praise | 6:00pm

Our Sunday Evening Praise service is a long-standing tradition at First Free Rockford and is held in the Chapel off of the Main Lobby.  This service resembles what you might find in a small simple church with pews, stained glass, and organ lead hymns.  Each service includes a time of singing, prayer, and teaching from a rotation of staff and guest teachers.  The service is an hour long and runs from March-May and then again from September-November.
