Lead Pastor

First Fairhope’s mission is summed up in: “First loved, love first”. It won’t take you long to discover this is truly a family rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our community and world with ministry that meets them at the center of their need.

Our doors are open. Our hearts are open too. If you’ve been thinking, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, a place to be loved, a place to call “home”, then we invite you to come join us at First Fairhope.

First Time Here?

As soon as you arrive on campus you’ll enter through our Commons area that faces the back parking lot. Inside you’ll be greeted with a smile and a handshake. If you need directions or assistance, our First Impressions team is ready to help!

You’ll see all kinds of people wearing all types of clothing. You are welcome to come just as you are.


We’d love to hear from you!
If you have questions about any of our events at First Fairhope, please send us a message here.

What’s coming up?

Perky (& masked) Pumpkin Party

The Perky Pumpkin Party is on! It will look a little different, and we’ve adjusted the time in case the lights we rent are unavailable. 
We still need the First Family to donate tons of candy for the kids. 
If the attendance at the Pumpkin Patch Festival is any indication of what to expect, its going to be huge! Remember it’s October 31 from 5-7 (new times). Trick or Treating may be something parents want to avoid this year. If so, be sure you tell your friends about the PPP! It’s goin to be a night of fun and candy and a couple of new surprises.

Operation Christmas Child 2020

We are in the middle of Operation Christmas Child Shoebox filling and gathering! You can pick up shoeboxes and all the details/stickers. There are some important thins to note about what NOT to put in them: No toothpaste or candy. Take everything out of packaging-even toothbrushes (you know some thins are packed as secure as an airplane’s “black box!”). They have no way to open them in other countries. If you want aa “Hands Free” option to packing a box, reach out to Carolyn Hammill our Shoebox Elf who is at the display each Sunday.

First Steps.

Membership Process

We need each other…

When the church started 2000 years ago, they didn’t have a building—they had each other! The Bible paints a beautiful picture of people worshipping, praying together, taking care of each other, and doing life together.  They were more than acquaintances. They were family! A commitment to each other is how the church started, and it’s still that way today! If we want to experience real life, we’ve got to do life together. When you become a member of First Fairhope, you’re joining a family where you take care of your brothers and sisters, and they take care of you!
