This summer First Free is deploying two short-term teams for missions and outreach.
Dresden, Germany: Over several years of sending teams to engage with German youth in sports and English camps, our teams have led, taught, modeled, and assisted the German team to do ministry in the most effective way – being relational throughout the year. Now our partnership is winding down and we are transitioning from being a ministry partner to a friendship and support system. Of course, there is a deep fondness between our churches, but God has clearly directed and now is the time to release them to finish the task in their region.
The Dresden team will lead a sports camp (lacrosse, flag football, and softball), teach English, and share their personal testimonies of faith in Jesus.
Ironton, Missouri: First Free is sending 69 people to Ironton to work with the community kids at Day Spring Camp. They hope to raise enough funds to build an outdoor pavilion over the patio for more ministry space. This family mission focuses on equipping families to serve together in ministry. Ironton is running Vacation Bible School (VBS) for younger kids and day camp for the older kids. They will also do a carnival to get whole families to the camp to connect.
Please pray for team training, funding, health and safety as they travel.
