Masterpiece is a group for those with special needs because First Free believes everyone is a masterpiece in God's eyes (Ephesians 2:10). The mission of our Masterpiece classes and activities is to equip adults, youth, and kids with special needs with the knowledge and tools to connect with God in a personal way.
The Buddy Program pairs children (Pre-K-5th grade) and youth (6th-12th grade) with trained helpers who make sure their needs are met in the regular classroom on Sunday mornings.
The Bridge Class provides a friendly environment where teens and young adults can feel accepted and encouraged while learning about God's love for them. Re-launching this fall.
Hand-in-Hand is a place where adults of any age with special needs can come together to grow relationships, experience an interactive Bible lesson, and share prayer requests. Volunteers serve as mentors during class time. Re-launching this fall. Watch interactive videos on YouTube
Update: Respite Nights are temporarily on hold as our community responds to the coronavirus. We hope to see you again soon!
At Respite Night, parents drop off their child(ren) with special needs (any age) along with siblings through age 13, while background-checked volunteers care for them. We offer a variety of activities for the kids to enjoy, and our volunteers find so much joy serving parents in this way as they laugh, play, and interact with these wonderful kids! Respite Nights are offered four times per year.
