Beginning June 20, 2021 – First Free will be rolling out some new things!! We thank God that our city’s mitigation efforts against the spread of Covid-19 are in good control, so the city of Chicago has moved to phase 5 of re-opening
- Main floor of the Sanctuary – capacity at 100%; no registration required; sit where you would like; please be mindful of others to avoid crowding.
- Balcony of the Sanctuary – seating available with registration; households (or groups of households that register together) who reserve balcony seats will continue to follow social distancing with seats assigned ahead of time
- Face masks – while in the building, please continue to wear a face mask, even if you are vaccinated or comfortable without one. We are doing this in solidarity with those who cannot be vaccinated or who are medically vulnerable, to make First Free’s church campus a place that is welcoming to all.
- Children – kids of all ages are welcome to worship at First Free! During the Sunday morning worship service, there will be tables and toys set up downstairs with video or audio feed running for parents to supervise children while still listening to the sermon; the nursery will be open for young children (unstaffed – use with parent supervision); all children can collect an activity bag outside the main Sanctuary doors to use during the sermon. Before the worship service, there will be a kids Sunday school class from 9:20 am – 9:55 am in the 3rd floor classroom of the Family Life Center. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information!
