Free Church currently meets at the historic Arts Center in Oak Park, IL.
Free Church was started in 2012 by Chuck and Urshanna Colegrove. After serving as associate pastors in Houston, TX for 12 years, God stirred their hearts to move to Oak Park with a vision to start a life-giving church representing the vast diversity in Oak Park. They dreamed that Free Church would be a place where people would worship together and build significant, flourishing, God-centered lives, all for love.
From the beginning, Free Church focused on reaching out to the non-churched community by building relationships through Serve Projects and Small Groups. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday services, and the simple style of Church life immediately attracted new families. In year one, the church grew from 25 on the launch team to over 100 members. Today more than 300 gather for worship on any given weekend making Free Church truly a home for every story.
At our worship services, you’ll experience heart-felt praise and worship and hear practical teaching from the Bible.
We have incredible ministry to kids at each service so that people of every age can experience God and get to know Him better.
You’ll experience friendly people who’d love to meet you and get to know you, so we invite you to be our guest. We can’t wait to get to meet you!
