First Evan Recreation exists to foster a supportive community through wellness, exercise, and competition while serving as an entry point to the gospel and the church.

Welcome to First Evan Recreation where you will find a community of people seeking to better themselves through a variety of physical activities. We offer a well-maintained facility that houses a beautiful wood gym floor with 6 hoops, a walking track above the gym, and a fitness room that offers treadmills, elliptical machines, weightlifting machines, stationary bikes, and free weights.

If you decide you want to get a little more results from your efforts, we also offer fitness classes and personal training that could fit your needs to obtain your goals faster!

Here's what you can expect at the Rec! Below will be a few snapshot changes we've made due to the threat of COVID-19:

  • Must wear a mask when entering and exiting the facility.

  • If it makes you more comfortable to wear gloves, by all means do.

  • There is NO shower access. It's a major task with cleaning and disinfecting those areas after every use.

  • Bring your own towel. We will not offer towels during this time.

  • Members must spray down equipment before and after use. Please be diligent in this. We want to keep everyone safe.

  • The cardio equipment is now in the gymnasium.

If there is something you would like to see offered, please contact us at recreation@firstevan.org.
We are thankful for your interest!
