Youth Retreats (seasonal)
Once in the fall and winter, we host youth retreats for both high school and middle school students. These are fantastic opportunities to spend extended time with each other to learn, grow, and create lasting memories. From unique outdoor activities to special speakers and worship experiences, students will be inspired and transformed to follow Jesus more. Visit our website for upcoming dates and pricing.
Student Leadership Team (year-round)
Every first and third Sunday of the month, our SLT meets in the student rooms at 8:45 a.m. to deepen our faith, grow as leaders, and dream together about the future of student ministry at First Free Rockford.
Around Town Tuesdays (year-round)
Throughout the year, our First Free Students director goes to various coffee shops and cafés in Rockford to meet up with students. It’s an open-house extension of our pursuit of authentic community. Visit us on social media for dates and locations.
Mission Trips (summer)
Each summer we take students on two different missions trips outside Illinois. These trips challenge students to put their faith into action in new ways and to experience how big our God really is. Visit our website for dates, pricing and how to apply.
