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

Wed@First

Wed@First provides an opportunity for members and guests to experience Christian fellowship and growth in a relaxed atmosphere. It features a delicious dinner and classes for adults on a variety of topics before dinner (beginning as early as 3:00 p.m.) and after dinner (ending by 7:30 p.m.).

Teachers from the congregation and community bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. There are opportunities for service, exercise, and prayer. Additionally, we offer children’s choirs on Wednesdays for ages 4 year-olds – 5th grade. 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 Wed@First.

Our Fall program will begin on Wednesday, September 13 and continue through November 15, with the theme “Fruit of the Spirit.”  Dinner opens at 5:45 p.m. Our after dinner program is from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Each week we will focus on a different Christian virtue (“fruit”) from Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians.

Please make a dinner reservation here, with the church office, or on the Fellowship Pad (during the service on Sunday mornings) by Monday at 12:00 p.m. for each Wednesday. $8 adults, $5 children & students, $20 max per family.
