Our Wednesday evening activities focus our efforts on discipleship. Believing that Jesus was crystal clear when He gave his final instructions to go into all the world and make disciples, we have clarified the purpose of our Wednesday evening events to strategically focus on the task of Disciple making - or making missionary followers of Jesus.

Thursday is usually a school and work day! Being sensitive to your family's needs, we have scheduled these activities from 6:00 pm- 7:30 pm so you have the opportunity to experience Wednesdays at First and be able to get your family home earlier in the evening.

Leaders: Steve & Jeanette Stallings | Room 308 (started on Jan. 25)

After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues and you feel alone. Often, friends and family want to help you, but don’t know how. That’s the reason for GriefShare. This group is led by caring people who have experienced grief. They understand how you feel because they’ve been in the same place. And they will walk with you on the journey through grief towards healing and hope for the future. Book Cost: $15. For more info, visit the GriefShare page.

The Cross and the Crescent

Leader: Bill Bassette | Room 309

Entrusted: A Study of 2 Timothy (Women)

Leader: Sybil Quillin | Room 317 – 319

We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this 6-session Bible study, Beth Moore will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. In this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness. Book Cost: $13

Book of 2 Corinthians

Leader: Hilton Oliver | Room 321

Second Corinthians is the most autobiographical of Paul’s letters and provides deep insight into his ministry as he writes to a church which was plagued with worldly problems but had largely responded positively to his previous admonitions. Hand-outs will be provided.
