Wednesday Night Classes

  • WHEN: Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.
  • The RISING (for teens): 6:00 p.m. during the school year
  • Children (nursery–6th Grade): 7:00 p.m.

So many of us lead busy lives, and our tanks run on empty. If we never pause and refuel, we can lose focus on God.

Our Wednesday night classes are an opportunity to do just that -break from our busy lives and refuel on the Word of God. We join together for inspiring teaching on topics of life, culture, family and faith. We also take time to catch up with one another as a family, encouraging each other in our walks of faith.

We have options for the whole family on Wednesday. Our children and teens meet for fun and formational classes and often share a meal together. Adults share in classes, times of praise, and in other ministries like FriendSpeak, a conversational English program that uses the Bible as a textbook. Take a break from your week, join us on a Wednesday evening, and refocus on God.

Teens: The RISING

The Rising is designed to be a refuge for students from all over the city. HYG opens its doors at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays during the school year for food and fun. The Rising is not offered during the summer because of the many mission trips, outreach opportunities, and group activities. Students can eat, play video games or sports, and hang out with friends and mentors. We gather together from 7:00-7:45 p.m. for exciting worship and a lesson designed to encourage and challenge. We want The Rising to be a time when students are empowered and equipped to make God the focal point of their lives. And we want it to be fun!

Children's Classes

During the school year, our Nursery-6th graders have both small group and large group activities each week. They are involved in age-appropriate games, skits, and devotionals that help them understand God’s teachings. During the summer, they meet as a large group for active learning. Running shoes and comfortable clothes are a must for this age group! Group-led games include relays and other high action activities. Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man… That is our goal for this group. We work their minds and bodies, and we provide settings for them to build close relationships that will continue throughout their adolescent years.
