Summer’s almost over and that means it’s about time for Wednesday Night Live to start up again!  What is this “Wednesday Night Live” you might ask?  It’s our weekly Wednesday gatherings where we feed our bodies and souls.  Starting September 6, we’ll gather at 5:15pm in the gym for dinner together.  Then we’ll head to our classes and small groups that go from 6:30pm – 7:30pm.  Check out the great classes being offered below and get ready to plug in!

  • Children and Adults begin Wed, September 6
  • Youth (Emerge) begins Wed, August 16 at Lake Reba for the Back-to-School rally (6:30pm).

Contact a group leader directly or email Jamie Jordan at adult@richmondfumc.org for more information or to sign up.

 

Adult WNL Classes

Men!  Take the Flag – led by Morris Thompson

Pastor Rob Fuquay sees a parallel between the flags used in auto racing and the signals GodW sends us in our fast-paced lives. This group will help members become stronger disciples of Jesus Christ by paying attention to the signals God gives us each day.

 

Women!  Disciple Fast Track – led by Kathy Vockery

Based on the original Disciple Bible study, this class will study the Bible in-depth with reading outside of class to prepare for group meetings.

 

Women!  Gifts of Love – led by Lori Chassé

The Gifts of Love class is for all crafters to create crafts of your choice. Participants will bring their own supplies and we will spend class time creating our own, one of a kind crafts while discussing scripture. These will be sold at the Women’s Ministry Christmas Craft Fair. All proceeds will benefit the church’s Sharing Ministry Utility Assistance Program. This class will provide a way for you to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

 

Young Adults – led by Jamie Jordan

This semester our young adult class will join other young adults at the Wesley Foundation so we can dig into God’s Word together. Transportation from church will be provided.

 

For Everyone

Moses: Reluctant Prophet – led by Sonnie Maas

Join author Adam Hamilton as he travels from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, the Nile, the Red Sea, and the wilderness exploring the sites of Moses’ life. You’ll gain a better understanding of Moses’ significance in your life today, and you’ll discover how you, too, can turn your own reluctance into boldness.

 

Parenting – led by April Cain

Designed for those who desire to become better parents, this class will involve teaching, sharing and prayer.

 

Financial Peace University

Learn how to follow good stewardship practices through Dave Ramsey’s teaching and group accountability. Participants will create a budget and take steps towards reducing (and preventing) debt.

 

Matthew: Prelude to the Great Commission

Led by Pastor Bruce Nettleton

Join us as we read the gospel of Matthew through a very particular set of lenses: What it means to be and make disciples of Jesus in the 21st century. This class will span the both semesters of the school year and involve some reading and study between Wednesdays to prepare for lively discussion. We hope the final product will be a plan for discipleship ministries for ourselves as individuals and for the larger church family.

 

Epic of Eden: Isaiah – led by Stacy Jordan

Dr. Sandra Richter takes participants back to the eighth century BCE. This study explains Israel’s religion and economy, explores the definition and role of the prophets, and helps us to apply the message of this great champion of the faith to our lives today.
