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 has now closed, but you can still participate. Please call or come to the Church Office for more information. Click here for room assignments.
Exploring the Psalms
The Psalms are a tote bag for the whole of the Bible. In them we find God teaching us what life looks like before Him. In this series, Dr. Ken Mathews and Dr. Mark Gignilliat will engage various Psalms in order to enter into this live encounter with the God who creates and redeems.
Leader: Dr. Kenneth Mathews and Dr. Mark Gignilliat Both serve as Professor of Divinity in Old Testament at Beeson Divinity School

Home Base: Forming a Life-Giving Family
Home can be a place where children are grounded and nurtured in the Gospel but too often a focus on good behavior, athletic or academic achievement and sexual purity can actually diminish rootedness in Christ and fruitful Christian living.

- A nurturing foundation for young children
- Recognizing good discipline and how it breathes life into a child’s character
- Cultivating settled and vibrant sexuality in your children

In this class, we’ll explore how God works in the mess of our relationships and how we can respond to others with both grace and truth.

John 13—17, The Farewell Discourse of Jesus
The gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke devote considerable space to the teaching and actions of Jesus during his last week prior to the Passover meal. But John dedicates most of his writing during the final week of Jesus to his teaching and actions during the Passover meal. These five chapters delivered on Jesus' last night with his disciples have come to be known as “The Farewell Discourse". John's recorded eyewitness memories are saturated with vital doctrine. Jesus had promised to never leave his followers, but he knows that he will go to the cross the next day and then after the resurrection return to heaven. How can the disciples continue forward without him and how will anyone else ever come to even know of Jesus Christ? These issues and more are answered here as Jesus lays out the Father's plan that will begin to unfold over the next fifty days and continue until his final return. Through the sending of the Holy Spirit, Jesus will continue to be present with the current disciples as well as with all new believers throughout history.

Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God's Unfailing Love (A Women’s Study)
The freedom in falling short of God’s standard relies on His gift of grace. Unfortunately, too many of us forget the free offer. We spend our lives basing our relationship with God on our performance rather than on Him. We see our identity as never being worthy of His love. Isn’t it time to stop trying to measure up and begin accepting the transforming power of God’s grace? Using the book Transforming Grace by Jerry Bridges you will be inspired renewed to see just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is.

Grace Filled Marriage
Couples come to the altar bursting with love for each other. Yet, based on how many marriages are unfulfilling, unhappy, or worse yet, end in divorce, it would seem that the love that gets couples married isn't enough to keep couples married. Maybe if we had the ability to love unconditionally, like God does, love would be enough…but we don't. Therefore, love falls short. Love isn't enough to save struggling marriages. This study explores a radical hypothesis: Most marriages don't fail because they lack love…they fail because they lack Grace. Grace can bring intimacy and restoration to broken marriages. Grace means giving your spouse something they desperately need, but don't necessarily deserve…things like kindness, forgiveness and the benefit of the doubt. And the best part is that if we focus on grace, the love we so desire with our spouse will naturally follow.
