What Is First Wednesdays?

At Eaton Community Church we realize that followers of Jesus are to be Everyday Disciples. As Everyday Disciples, we realize that takes place everywhere we go, not simply on Sunday mornings. First Wednesdays are one time a month where we gather to:

1. Remember we are Everyday Disciples

2. Be disciples together, across generations, not alone

3. Find creative ways to navigate life as disciple makers

2023-2024 THEME:


"6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness..." - Exodus 34:6

This particular passage is used in some way over 25 times throughout the whole Old Testament to describe who God is. Though these five characteristics aren't the only ways to describe The Lord, they are the five ways he chose to describe himself to Moses. 

Therefore, we have chosen to spend the first Wednesdays of 2023-2024 to discover WHO God is, and thus realize as disciples we are to be like him.

First Wednesdays 6-8pm - Meal at 6pm

February 7 - Slow to Anger

March 6 - Loyal Love

April 3 - Faithful


At First Wednesdays, we've been using The Bible Project as a guide to our theme on the Character of God. We also provide a monthly discipleship card that gives helpful tools and tips on how to follow Jesus in multiple facets of life.


The final 30 minutes of our evening we breakout into smaller groups to address what it looks like to Build Homes of Disciples.

Children (4yr-6th Grade)

We desire to help our children understand the heart of First Wednesday: Building Homes of Disciples. Therefore, during the children's breakout there will be some activity or lesson that will coincide with the theme of discipleship for the evening.

Youth (7th-12th Grades)

Being a Christian in Middle School and High School is not an easy task! The youth spend their breakout time addressing the difficulties of being a Christ-follower among the culture and in the midst of school. 


It doesn't matter what stage of adulthood you're in, this breakout time is designed to help you fine-tune your discipleship while also looking for ways to help disciple others (friends, family, co-workers, etc.)
