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 6-7:30 pm so you have the opportunity to experience
Wednesdays at First and be able to get your family home earlier in the evening.
All of our Wednesday evening activities are at our Kempsville Road Location unless otherwise noted.

Some names live in infamy, and some names inspire the greatest kinds of hope. But there is one name above all other names, and it belongs to the Son of God, Jesus. Jesus is the most unique person who’s ever lived, and his names carry with them great weight.In this six-session series, Dr. Tony Evans journeys around the stomping grounds of Jesus in the land of Israel and presents a complete picture of the Incarnate God. By teaching on each of the major names of Jesus, Tony brings us face-to-face with the Second Person of the Trinity. Shot in the major locations where Jesus himself lived and taught, we find ourselves asking one question: “What will we do with Jesus?”
