WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIFT

Wednesday Night Lift (WNL) provides a short-term small group environment where individuals invest a season of their life to learning insights and skills that allow them to more fully participate in community. In addition, WNL provides a safe environment where individuals can find community to help overcome a particular life-dominating struggle of sin or suffering. WNL classes and workshops are not meant to be long-term substitutes for discipleship. Instead, WNL seeks to help deal with immediate needs, with the goal of directing everyone to Lifegroup participation.


WNL classes and workshops will offer support for those needing encouragement and support during a period of suffering or hardship, hope for those struggling with life-dominating sins, education for those needing information or resources about a specific life issue, and a place to process or counsel for those needing to deal with problematic emotions or life stressors.

Below are some classes we offer:

A Praying Life

For most of us, prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand it, we simply do not pray. Prayerlessness is rooted in unbelief. Because of prayerlessness, our lives are often marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy. If prayerlessness marks your life more often than not, the class A Praying Life is for you. In this class you will learn that prayer is simply you – a child of a good Father – making conversation with Him a rhythm of your life.
