God has blessed First Free with great facilities that serve us well in making disciples and demonstrating hospitality to like-minded ministries in Wichita. Every Sunday we gather as a congregation for worship and classes for children, students, and adults; as well as a number of church events during the week. In addition, we host and average of eleven non-First Free events each week. It has been close to forty years since we updated the gym and courtyard and we believe that now is the time to enhance those spaces and to make the entrance that most people use more noticeable and inviting.
Renew 20-21 is our endeavor to remodel the south entrance by making it highly visible, the courtyard by making it more open and with better acoustics that allow for greater use, and the gym by adding larger windows and better acoustics. We will also be opening up the staircase off the courtyard and widening the hallway at the basement level of the staircase.
