Jesus is the most generous person to have ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As ones who follow Christ, in joyful response for all he has given us, we give him thanks and glory as we generously give of our time, talent, and finances.

Flocknote Signup

What is Flocknote and how do I sign up?

Flocknote is a service to better communicate more effectively with you and in order to do this we are using a new, simple service called FLOCKNOTE. Like sending "notes" to your "flock". Flocknote.

This is all totally free for you to use and it's going to also make it easy for you to stay plugged in to the ministries or groups that you care about, all by text message or email updates. Your information will be completely safe and secure. And you can unsubscribe from any updates at any time!

Flocknote is very simple. From your cell phone, text the letters FIRSTEVAN to the SHORT 5-digit phone number 84576. FIRSTEVAN is all one word, no spaces. And make sure your auto-spelling-corrector on your phone doesn't mistakenly change the text.

Once you send that in, Flocknote will send you back a confirmation message AND another message asking you to click a link to complete the process. Click the link in that message, add your first and last name, email address and select whatever committees you belong to.

If you can’t complete this on your mobile phone, please click the link below to complete the form online.


If you are interested in joining our church or simply would like to know more about what we teach and preach, we offer a Bible Information Class. The class is held at various times throughout the year, lasting 13-15 weeks. For more information or to sign up, contact Pastor Roekle using this form. You can also sign up here.
