Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF)

ABF Class options

At LEFC, we call our Sunday morning classes for adults Adult Bible Fellowships. Many of our classes have settled into groups based on age and stage of life, BUT you are welcome to attend any class you like.  Some people like to hear a certain teacher or topic, while others prefer the comfort of being with those of a similar demographic. Please join us!  

This August our ABF format will temporarily change from our regular classes, and we will introduce August Summer Electives.  Four electives will be offered - 2 each service.  Please feel free to come when you can during the weeks of August 5-August 26. We know August is vacation season, and teachers are prepared to see people come and go over the four weeks.  Please join us!

First Service  (9-10:15) August Elective Classes

Room A 103
Matt Sowada - Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters. (Men Only)

Using Tim Keller's book as a guide, we'll explore familiar Bibilical texts to uncover the ways in which we make “good things” ultimate.  Throughout these four weeks we hope to point to Christ as the only worthy object of our faith.

Room A 101
Hosted by Jenny Hoover and taught by various women –
Prayer: An invitation to connect and commune. (Women Only)

Maybe you long for a more intimate prayer life or deeper insight from God’s Word, but just don’t know how to get there.  Join us as we dig into several of Paul’s Prayers and put some new disciplines into practice.

2nd Service  (10:50-12:00) August Elective Classes

Room A103
Ric Joline - "A Study of Faith and Fear"

Pastor Ric leads this discussion of a topic of interest for many on a serious Faith Journey.  We’ll take a look at some OT Bible Characters from 1 Samuel and see how we can grow in our understanding of the lies we sometimes believe and the truth we should always believe.  

Room A 101
Ed Scheuerman  -- Are our Gospel presentations coming up short?

Have you ever wondered why certain Gospel presentations are more effective in certain situations.  Join us as we look at 3 different Gospel paradigms, processing how we incorporate these into our lives and conversations.

Our "regular ABFs will begin again September 9.  See below for classes.
