Dr. Eric Hankins

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?

We are getting ready for VBS this summer, which will be June 11-15, 2023,  but we can’t do it without help.  Enrollment each year continues to increase, which is wonderful, as that means more children will be introduced to Jesus in a real, personal way –but this is where we need you.  Will you please consider teaching a class?  We have first – fourth grades that need teachers. Thank you for your service.

Walk For Life

Our Goals: 150 Walkers and $15,000 raised in donations.

The Annual WALK FOR LIFE is a fundraiser for the Women’s Care Medical Center, one of our important community ministry partners. This easy walk is a way to show your support for preborn life and help raise much-needed funds to help families dealing with an unplanned pregnancy and follow up counseling.

The walk will be held at the Fairhope Pier from 7:30 – 10:00 AM, rain or shine. We plan to take a group picture at 9:00 AM in front of the fountain.

In addition to walking, here is how you can raise financial support:
-Sponsor yourself and walk and donate.
-Get a Sponsor Form and ask friends, family and co-workers to sponsor you for the walk. You get a T-Shirt with $200 in pledges.

The good news is that you don’t have to bother with collecting the pledges. Women’s Care will follow up and collect the funds for you!

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!
