Ongoing Events







  • Preschool "Helping Hands," Sunday mornings. Our biggest need requires NO preparation; we simply need “helping hands” to help our 3–5-year-old preschoolers stay engaged in the lesson and run the activity centers that our leaders have planned. Ideally, helpers would serve every other week, in order to build relationships with the children, but we would also welcome helpers to serve once a month. We'd love for you to join our team! Please email children@firstevan.org or call us at 682-8452.

  • Nursery, Sundays, 10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m. We need people to rock babies during the Worship Service. We'd love for you to join our team! Please email children@firstevan.org or call us at 682-8452.

  • Greeters Team — Do you enjoy making people feel welcome on Sunday mornings? We’re looking for volunteers who would be willing to serve on holiday Sundays and special event Sundays when we don’t have a Sunday School class overseeing Hospitality at the entrances. If you would be interested in helping with this, contact Crickett Keeth at 682-8452.

  • Volunteers Needed: His Touch Ministry.  Do you have a heart for the needy, the elderly, or the lonely? His Touch is a visitation ministry to the homebound.

To join this team of visitors or to receive more information, call or text Linda Lambert at 901-832-9314.

  • Moms in Prayer: We all pray to be godly mothers and grandmothers.  Moms In Prayer gives you a weekly opportunity to do so.  Connect with other moms in your area to lift up and stand in the gap for your children, schools, administrators, and homeschools. Go to www.momsinprayer.org or text Jean Lassiter at (843) 697-8042.

  • Audio/Visual Assistance Needed. Do you enjoy pushing buttons, problem solving, and being behind the scenes? Then come be a part of our Audio/Video Ministry!
