Dream Team Sunday

August 26th, 2018

THE WHAT

Dream Team Sunday is an opportunity to jump right in on one of our Sunday morning teams and experience what it's like to belong to the Freedom Church "dream team." You can think of it as a "test drive" as you find your place as a volunteer on the Freedom Church team.

THE WHY

We believe that volunteering with the Freedom Church team is about more than just getting the job done. For our volunteers, it's about finding the joy and satisfaction of participating with God in his mission to save the world.

We also consistently hear from people that serving on a volunteer team is how they began to develop friendships with others in the church. We want you to experience the life of Jesus as you serve to advance his Gospel in the context of a team.

Yet, we know there are sometimes obstacles to taking that first step. Perhaps you are worried about signing up for something and then getting "lost" in an application process with people you've never met? Maybe you're afraid of committing to do something that you later discover isn't a very good fit for you (awkward!)? Maybe you just want to get started right away before you get distracted?

THE HOW

Signup for the team you'd like to try from the list below. Then, show up on Sunday, August 26th at 8:30am to get some guidance about what to do next and to join us for our team rally moment! You can expect to get acquainted with the others on the team and to shadow them as we serve for the first service. After the team has finished their first-service duties (around 10:45am) you will be free to attend the 11am church service.

Freedom Empower

August 26th, 2018

Freedom Empower is a powerful time of personal ministry which is a follow up to the study on the Holy Spirit contained in chapter 4 of our Bible study, "Lordship: Responding the the Good News of Jesus Christ." Completion of this study, either through the Foundations Class, or in a small group Bible study is a prerequisite to attending Freedom Empower.

At Freedom Empower you will hear a short teaching from Pastor Gabe and some of our church leaders will pray for you to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. Everyone always leaves this time strengthened and encouraged.

Freedom Empower meets at the church office at 232 S. 4th St. at 1:30pm. (This is at the intersection of 4th and Locust.)

Freedom Foundations Class

September 9th - September 30th, 2018

A new round of Foundations Class is beginning soon!

If you are new to the Christian faith or deciding to make Freedom Church your home, we invite you to join us for our next Foundations Class. Foundations is an introduction to the basics of the Christian faith as well as an overview of our church’s core teachings. It's a great way to find out more about what we believe and to grow in your faith personally.

The class times will be from 11am - 12:15pm, for four consecutive Sundays. Foundations Class meets upstairs on the second floor of the Prince Theater.

Water baptism

Water Baptisms

September 30th, 2018

Water baptism is an important step in a response to believe and follow Jesus. In the early church baptism was a clear step that was taken to publicly demonstrate this decision.

If you have made the decision to repent from sins and trust in Jesus as your Savior and Lord, but not yet been water baptized, we want to invite you to take this important step.

This event is scheduled to be held at Optimal Gym, located at 325 Bainbridge St, Philadelphia, PA 19147. The location will be confirmed and participants will receive an email the week before the event.

For the baptisms you will need to wear a dark colored t-shirt and shorts and bring your own towel. There are locker rooms available at the gym, which you may use to change clothes.

This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family members. They are all welcome to come and witness you take this step in obedience to Jesus, though only those actually being baptized need to register.

Lastly, please complete this pre-baptism questionnaire to help us know how to best guide you in this process. It should only take you a few minutes to complete.
