At First Free we’re always looking for ways to love and serve our city in relational and practical ways. This year COVID-19 has presented significant challenges for many in our Lincoln Public School system. Together, we have the opportunity to impact marginalized families, struggling kids, and overworked teachers and administrators alike. Want to join us? Here’s how you can help.
Pick one school on your heart or pick several! Then join the FFC Loves LPS network for the school of your choice.
Once you join a school network, you’ll discover specific ways to encourage and equip the teachers, administrators, and families of that school. You may also receive additional opportunities to love and serve your school via email from the FFC point person for that school throughout the season.
See how our teams are spreading the love! Share your photos and stories by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
