Wednesday Night Life is what we call our mid-week evening of fellowship and discipleship for every member of the family. Adults can choose to attend a class or serve in the choir or orchestra. Students and preteens meet for worship and teaching. Children and preschoolers learn songs and do missions activities. Most classes are one hour and begin at 6:30pm. Children's and students activities generally start at 6:15pm.
Don't forget dinner! Everyone is invited to our Fellowship Meal. Each week a local restaurant provides an affordable meal before our classes begin. Come to the Gym between 4:45 -6:15pm. We would love to meet you.
Online registration for Wednesday Night Life classes has closed. For information on the classes still open, please contact the Church Office, 205.985.7295 during business hours, Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm.

Atheists and Agnostics: Their Beliefs and How to Prove that God Exists
What presuppositions/beliefs do Atheists and Agnostics hold to? Are Atheism/Agnosticism faith based Worldviews or science based Worldviews? How do you respond when someone tells you, “I don’t believe in God”? How do you use an Atheist’s denial of absolute truth to your advantage? What is an irrefutable way to prove that God exists to an Atheist? How do you answer the most popular questions of an Atheist? I will be answering all those questions, and in doing so I will explain an argument for the existence of God that is powerful, conclusive, and has no true rebuttal. As such, it is an irrefutable argument. I encourage you to come to this class in order to be equipped to lovingly challenge their beliefs and share the hope of the gospel with them. Feel free to bring an atheistic or agnostic friend with you.

The Life and Ministry of Jesus Christ: A Study of the Parallel Gospels
Jesus Christ is the focal point of all history. He is the fulfillment of Old Testament hopes; He is the source of New Testament revelation and expectation. He is all in all. In this study, we will use the four gospels, side-by-side in parallel, to survey the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. We will consider the synoptic gospels and the gospel of John verse by verse from the viewpoint and theology of each writer. The harmony of the message of the four gospel writers rises from the pages when they are viewed as a unit. We will discuss similarities, and we will discuss differences. Most important, we will bask in the power of the gospel and glory in Jesus Christ as God Incarnate

Six Ways God Speaks to Us in the Old Testament
If you are like most Christians, you struggle to make sense of the Old Testament or to comprehend how it is relevant to you today. Yet Jesus, the apostles and early Christians quoted liberally from the Old Testament. Since Jesus proclaimed that the Old Testament is the word of God, the Scriptures that "bear witness" to him, we dare not fail to attempt to understand its message to us today. The goal of this class will be to examine six ways God speaks to you today in the Old Testament, specifically we will be listening to God's written voice as he speaks in (1) the history of his people, (2) the public religious observances of his people, (3) the prayers and praise of his people, (4) the great preachers he sent to his people, (5) wisdom for daily life and (6) revealing himself and his purposes for his people. These six topics will give you an overview of the entire Old Testament and bring its' relevance for all Christians into clearer focus.
