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 the Spring Term (March 14 - May 9) has now closed, but you can still participate. Please call or come to the Church Office 205.985.7295 for more information. We will not meet Wednesday, March 28.
FALL CLASS REGISTRATION COMING SOON.
Christianity Explained: Understanding and Sharing the Essentials of the Christian Faith
Do you have a child, parent, friend, neighbor, or co-worker who you are not sure if they understand the gospel? Are they curious about Christianity and open to talking with you? Do you want to learn an easy and comprehensive way to share the gospel with someone? Do you personally want to learn what it means to be a Christian and how to become one? Or, do you want to start a Bible study where you live, work, or play? If so, this class is for you!
This class will equip you to lead someone through this Bible Study in order to help them clearly understand the gospel. All who attend will be given the teaching notes to use when teaching others. No preparation is necessary other than reading the Book of Mark each week.

Hidden in Plain View: Undesigned Coincidences in the Gospels and Acts
Undesigned Coincidences in the Gospels and Acts revives an argument for the historical reliability of the New Testament that has been largely neglected for more than a hundred years. An undesigned coincidence is an apparently casual, yet puzzle-like “fit” between two or more texts, and its best explanation is that the authors knew the truth about the events they describe or allude to. Connections of this kind among passages in the Gospels, as well as between Acts and the Pauline epistles, give us reason to believe that these documents came from honest eyewitness sources, people “in the know” about the events they relate. This argument helps Christians defend the New Testament by using the New Testament itself.

Jesus From Boyhood to Kingly Reign
In this course Dr. DeVine will give attention to selected episodes in the life of Jesus while asking the question, “what does this have to do with our lives today?” Dr. DeVine will give attention to commonly highlighted themes such as the death and resurrection of Jesus but also to some lesser known and neglected ones such as the boyhood, post-resurrection appearances, ascension of Jesus as well as the session of Jesus at the right hand of God the Father.

Joy Where You Least It Expect It: A Study of Luke 15
When Luke 15 opens Jesus has a bad reputation with religious leaders because He is spending a lot of time with some pretty rough people. To respond to the criticism, Jesus tells three parables. These three parables make up the remainder of the chapter. In this study of Luke 15, Jesus teaches about the consequences of sin, the hard-heartedness of those who legalistically follow the rules, and the need to take the gospel to uncomfortable places. Best of all, Jesus teaches about the joy of salvation!
Leader: Tommye Lambert
A distant spouse. A rebellious child. An angry co-worker. A needy relative. A backstabbing “friend.” We all have messy relationships, and we often struggle to know how to respond to the difficult people in our lives. 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.

To God Be the Glory: A Study of Romans 9-11-CLASS FULL
This class will seek to understand Romans 9-11 in the context of Romans as a whole. After Paul defines the heart of the gospel (chapters 1-4) and the assurance the gospel provides (chapters 5-8), a reader of Romans might make this objection: If God set his love on Israel (Deut. 7:7-8), and the majority of Israelites are "accursed and cut off from Christ" (Rom. 9:3), has the word of God failed (9:6)? And if so, how can I be sure that nothing will separate me from God’s love (8:38-39)? Paul's answer to this objection is Romans 9-11.

A Family Matters Milestone Class

These issues include sex, drugs, sexually transmitted diseases as well as the Internet, social media, pornography, and human trafficking. The class will cover the nuts and bolts of being a preteen in today’s society, including how to maintain a biblical world view.
