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.

1 Peter: Holy Living In An Ungodly Culture

Taught by Allen Black

Missional Motherhood

Facilitated by Amanda Price and Lindy Carr

7:00pm / Room A104

As mothers and nurturers, your part in God's kingdom plan is vital. Your role is much more than changing diapers and running a taxi! He wants to partner with you in making next generation disciples.

The Family Clinic

Multiple Teachers

Our idea is to  provide information with the will to create a stronger marriage, better parenting and a summer focused on men. The first 4 classes are on Marriage. We plan to have a diversity of teachers speaking to today's areas of concern.

April 19 / Class 1 / Surviving Life / David and Jenny LaVelle

April 26 / Class 2 / Surviving Marriage / David and Jenny LaVelle

No marriage is immune to attack from without and decay from within. Jenny and David will share some of the scriptures and tools they have used to keep their marriage alive in hard times and good.

May 3-24 / Boundaries in Marriage / Bill Ivey & Len Shelby

May 17: Resolving Conflict in Marriage
May 24 : Misunderstanding Boundaries in Marriage


Facilitated by Chris Altrock & Lawana Maxwell

7:00pm / Room A104-105

Quest is not for everyone. It’s limited to those tired of a subnormal faith and hungry for a life with God filled with greater risk and even greater reward.It’s reserved for those undaunted and undeterred by the invitation to climb higher and dive deeper than ever before. We’ve only got room for those willing to say “no” to other things and say “yes” to this expedition. The 2017 class is now closed.

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.
