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.

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.
