The Evangelical Free Church of Sidney, Nebraska was born in 1983 when several area families trusted God to begin a new church that was committed to the authority of the Bible. These excited believers partnered with the Midwest District of the Evangelical Free Church of America to plant a church in Sidney. They were soon joined by their first pastor, Gordon Langlie, who helped lay a solid spiritual foundation. With the blessing of God the church began to grow and minister in Sidney and Cheyenne County. In 1987, Pastor Doug Birky was called to join in the ministry of the young congregation which was meeting at a “store front” location. Following several more years of consistent spiritual and numerical growth, the “Sidney Free Church” moved to its present location as a well established body of believers. We continue to be a growing church family made up of all ages of people in a growing community.
