First Evan offers opportunities throughout the year for members to get together outside of the traditional worship service and enjoy fellowship and fun. Listed below are just some of these activities.
Lighthouse Run Every summer First Evan puts together a team for the annual Lighthouse Run in Racine.
Church Picnic This worship service and picnic is a great way to enjoy the summer weather and fellowship with each other and with New Hope Lutheran Church. The picnic is typically held at Johnson Park in late summer. After the worship service there is a meal of summer favorites followed by games for both kids and adults.
Advent and Lent Suppers Before each Wednesday night service in the seasons of Advent (before Christmas) and Lent (before Easter) a supper is served in the church basement. Volunteers sign up to prepare and serve these suppers.
