Within the heart of all of us is a desire to belong, a desire to be known and loved by others. 
  
First Free Methodist Church is a church where children, teens, and adults come together to worship God, make new friends, and care about each other.  Whether you have lived in the East Liverpool area your entire life or just moved to the area, we invite you to bring your family into ours.
  
 
A Place to Call Home
 
Sometimes it can feel uncomfortable walking into a church without knowing what to expect.  Allow us to help you out by answering some of the more commonly asked questions of  visitors at First Free Methodist
    
As a visitor or newcomer will I be welcome at First  Church?
You’re always welcome to worship with us.  As you walk through the doors there is a good chance you’ll be warmly greeted with a handshake and a word of welcome. 
     
What if I’m not a “Christian” or don’t have a church background?
We’re glad you’re here.  We enjoy the fact that this church is made up of people who range widely in spiritual backgrounds and life experiences.  We believe that God has each of us on a spiritual journey, but we recognize that not all people are at the very same point.  Some people have been for 50 years, others for just a week or two.  We’re glad you’re here and we look forward to having God lead you forward in your faith journey.
