Whether on a Sunday morning or Wednesday evening, you can help kids (early childhood through grade 5) develop a foundational understanding of who God is and what it means to be part of the church!

Production Team

Help make Sundays happen. Don’t let the name intimidate you! Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome and all training is provided. Bonus: Our Production Team gets donuts every Sunday morning!

First Impressions Team

Be the first friendly face someone sees when visiting our church on a Sunday morning! Serve with our First Impressions team as a valet, usher or at our Connection Center. 

Student Ministry

On Wednesdays evenings from 6:15–8:15 p.m., be a part of the team of volunteers who pour into and shepherd our middle and high school students. The reward is so great!


Invest in God’s Kingdom

We believe financial giving is as much a part of worship as anything else we do as a church. All of First Free Rockford’s ministries, programming, staff and facilities are funded exclusively by regular giving from our congregation. Giving helps build community, furthers the work of God locally and globally … and brings joy to the giver!
