Freedom Christian Church is a place where we care about people, and focus on loving others and using ministries to lead others to Christ while building relationships with one another. Therefore, we have a variety of ministries that God has birthed within the fellowship, and we hope and pray that as you come to join us on this journey that you will find a place to serve in an area of ministry.
Nursery & Children's Church
Sunday morning during our 10:00am service all children birth through fifth grade worship with the congregation in song. Pastor Eric will dismiss the children right before the sermons starts, babies 0 - 4 years old will be cared for in the nursery by one of our loving volunteers who will read a bible story, sing, and give them a snack. And children K - 5th Grade will go to Children's Church in the Education building where they will study God's word, sing, and play games. We love our kids and often include them in the morning service, they are the church of today!
Sunday Mornings the Middle & High School Students are invited for a fun and dynamic bible study. They are dismissed for Sunday School after the morning worship. (All Middle & High School Students stay in the service the first Sunday of the month). The first Sunday of the month Freedom Youth Group work on a service project, or have a fun social event.
