Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF)

At LEFC, we call our Sunday morning adult classes "Adult Bible Fellowships" (ABFs). Many of our classes have settled into groups based on age and stage of life and meet regularly most of the year. For information on these classes, which will continue through July, please visit the Welcome Desk. During the month of August, though, we will mix things up a bit by offering elective classes on various topics. We hope you will try a new class and meet new people. We know that summer is busy with vacations and activity, but we hope you will join us when you can!

Men's Elective: The Imperfect Disciple - Room A103
Join us as we process not only what it means to be a Disciple, but an imperfect one!  We’ll hear testimonies and dig into God’s word together as we study the God of all grace.  Using Jared Wilson’s new book, The Imperfect Disciple, as a guide, we’ll encourage each other to trust Him in the midst of the mess of our lives!

Parenting GenZ - Room A101
Wondering how to connect with your teenage son or daughter and trying desperately to keep up with social media? Generation Z, growing up immersed in technology, is unlike any other generation in history. We’ll spend four weeks looking at some trends in today’s teenagers, talking about unique challenges and struggles parents face, and looking at what Scripture has to say.

Discipleship & Me, Discipleship & You, Discipleship & The Church: An important conversation about LEFC's Mission  - Room EE (Modular)

The mission of LEFC is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We do this by sharing Christ in our relational worlds and pouring into the lives of others...but what does it really mean to be a disciple of Jesus in today's culture?

Join us as we discuss this and other questions like:  

  • Is discipleship a program or a set series of studies?
  • How can we best make and multiply disciples?
  • Is this statement true: "Everyone is a disciple and no one ever stops being a disciple."? If so, how? 

Bring your questions and join the conversation as together we seek a contemporary understanding of this ancient biblical concept and how it impacts our daily lives and relationships in 2019.  

Facilitators: Ric Joline, Steve Brubaker & Steve Polonus
