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 Wednesday Night Life registration has now closed for the Spring Term (March 8 - May 10), but you can still participate. If you have any questions, please call the church office at 205.985.7295. click here for class Room assignments.
The Not So Minor Prophets
This class will delve into the Minor Prophets as we listen to the individual prophetic voices and the canonical force of the whole. The focus of the class will be on the first six books of the Minor Prophets, though we may be able to go beyond these. We will also aim to hear these prophetic books as Christian Scripture, providing interpretive instruction for how to read Scripture in light of a two-testament Bible.

A Beautiful Design
God created us to function according to His perfect design, and for all of human history, our world has been male and female. But our ever-changing culture faces challenges due to sin. More than ever the church needs to be a safe refuge for the gender-confused, the sexually broken, the single, the married, and the divorced. In this video study, Matt Chandler gives evidence that God’s plan for man and woman is the ultimate design. And life lived within this beautiful and unchanging design is part of His greater purpose for humanity and leads to our greatest joy.

Remember the honeymoon period of your marriage 1, 5, 15 years ago... when you thought conflict, differences in handling finances, communication problems, and struggles with intimacy would not be a part of YOUR marriage? The truth is that all marriages have issues, and these are areas each couple has to work on in marriage.
Join Brian and Heather Hinton for a Marriage 101 refresher course as we cover issues discussed in premarital counseling and apply what we learn to our marriages today.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Are Their Beliefs Biblical?
Do you have any Jehovah’s Witnesses friends? Have you ever had a pair of friendly Jehovah’s Witnesses come by your house to tell you about their faith? Would you like to be better equipped to biblically respond to their arguments? Would you like to learn an airtight biblical argument that confirms the deity of Christ and the Trinity? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you are encouraged to attend this class on Jehovah’s Witnesses and their theology. This class will lovingly, respectfully, and clearly show the main differences in what Jehovah’s Witnesses believe and what the Bible teaches.
The class will be discussion oriented, and two elders from a local Kingdom Hall (Jehovah’s Witnesses Church) have been invited and are planning to attend and participate. Feel free to invite any Jehovah’s Witnesses friends you have.

Wise for Salvation: A Survey of the New Testament and What it Means
The Bible has 66 books but tells only one story: The story of God redeeming and reconciling humanity unto himself. Many of us read and study the Scriptures without grasping this overarching narrative. In this course we will survey the Bible from Romans to Revelation, growing in our understanding and appreciation for how God reveals his glorious character and his marvelous redemption in the rich variety of Scripture.

Why didn’t the “foolish Galatians” think Jesus is better? This study of the book of Galatians will explore that question. This study will also look closely at the answer which teaches the truth of the gospel that helps you live, “Coram Deo-In the Face of God,” through the ups and downs and many decisions of daily life.

The Book of Jeremiah reflects the ever-worsening situation Jeremiah encountered. At various times, he had the unenviable tasks of challenging the religious hypocrisy, economic dishonesty and oppressive practices of Judah’s leaders and those who followed them. Jeremiah was the voice of warning, the watchman who brings attention to hard truths that others would rather ignore. In this study you will see how the “weeping prophet” mourned the sins of his people, but never flinched in his confidence that God would vindicate the truth of his message. Learn how Jeremiah could continue to be faithful because God had promised to be faithful to him.
