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 offer personal training that could fit your needs to obtain your goals faster! If there is something you would like to see offered, please contact us at recreation@firstevan.org. We are thankful for your interest!
