Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF)



At LEFC, we call our Sunday morning adult classes
"Adult Bible Fellowships" (ABFs), and we are thrilled to announce that:

ABFS RELAUNCHED ON
SEPTEMBER 13th!

Please Note: All ABF attendees are required to wear a mask in the classrooms at all times due to the size of the rooms. So, yes, though masks are optional in the sanctuary, masks are required in these smaller spaces.  In an effort to limit exposure, there will also be no food or drink provided (unless it's prepackaged), and no tables set-up in the rooms.

We so hope you will join us as these communities gather and connect. Whether you have been attending a specific ABF for years, have casually attended in the past, or have not yet experienced this type of community at LEFC, we encourage you to check them out! After a season marked by disconnection, we hope you will find true community in these smaller group settings here at LEFC.

Below you will find a list of classes along with where and when they meet. Please check back soon for updated teacher and study information.

While all are welcome to attend any class they wish, many of these community-driven classes have settled into groups based on age or stage of life. Teachers rotate through classes communicating truth that is both Biblical and practical in nature. As teachers cycle through ABFs, the teaching style naturally varies from discussion based to lecture. ABFs occasionally gather outside of their Sunday morning routine for additional fellowship.
