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.

Learn to practice joy, defiant joy. Sooner or later, we find ourselves on the battlefield of life and struggle to know how to respond. But God says, “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chronicles 20:15). On that fateful day, King Jehoshaphat and his army marched forward rejoicing. Though we can choose from many weapons, God wants to empower us to fight back with joy. Join Margaret Feinberg for this 6-session Bible study that will help you embrace a life that’s richer and fuller than you’ve ever known before ---a life radiant with joy. Book Cost: $13
