…sharing the love of Christ with Athens and the world!


Wednesday@First provides an opportunity for our members and guests to experience a time of Christian fellowship and growth in a relaxed atmosphere. It generally spans 11 weeks twice a year (fall semester and winter/spring semester).

Wednesday@First features a delicious dinner (the best in town for the price!) at 5:45 p.m. to which all ages are invited. Register for dinner here.

We offer classes for adults on a variety of topics before dinner (beginning as early as 3:00 p.m.) and after dinner (ending by 8:00 p.m).  Teachers from the congregation and community bring a wealth of knowledge and experience.  Additionally there are opportunities for service, exercise, and prayer.  Since the process of becoming a mature Christian involves us in many learning experiences, we encourage everyone to be purposeful about pursuing growth.

Whether you come just for the meal and Christian companionship or to participate in a class or activity of interest, we hope you will try Wednesday@First.
