Welcome to BeFree Barrington!

We are a faith community of ordinary people, experiencing God’s extraordinary, transforming grace in Jesus Christ. Together we are being revived by faith, renewed by hope, and restored by love as we seek to live out the core teaching of Jesus to love God, love others, and live to help people encounter His good news.

**Winter Storm Cancellation Procedures**

Occasionally BeFree services are cancelled when weather makes it unsafe to travel. If you’re not sure if a scheduled event will take place, there are several ways you can get information:

  1. Call the church phone (664-5132) 24 hours a day to get up to date information. If phone doesn't answer, the power is out and there is no service.
  2. Check here on the website.
  3. Follow us on Facebook.
  4. Follow us on Twitter
  5. We may also send an email to everyone in the church directory.

After an overnight storm, we may cancel Sunday morning classes and Connections to give time for roads to clear and the parking lot to be plowed before the 10am service. In such cases, the decision to cancel might not be known until 8am, so if you are uncertain on a Sunday morning, call for an update after 8am.

Current Connections Study Series:

He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado

Series runs March 26 - April 23, 2017

In He Chose the Nails, a five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado examines the gifts that Christ gave at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns, the nails, and the empty tomb. The cross is rich with God’s gifts of grace, and as we unwrap them, we will hear him whisper, "I did it just for you."

We strive to nurture even our youngest attendees by demonstrating God's love through our Children's Ministries. Each Sunday, a mother or father can hand off a toddler or child with confidence to the care of faithful others. Not only is this a ministry to them, their children get to experience an environment of welcome, personal worth, and focused care from the broader church family.

Pat Wakeman, Children's Ministry Coordinator

Pat Wakeman brings a faithful and persevering kindness to the ministry for our youngest on Sunday mornings that involves child care, classes, and Adventureland (a fun, interactive worship experience for children ages 4-9 during our Sunday morning gatherings). Not only is Pat responsible for the coordination of these essential ministries, she also serves by recruiting for them and often subs in when needed. We are blessed by the many people who give their time and attention to our children every Sunday, from infant to high school. Theirs is a ministry to all of us.
