Adult Bible Fellowships
what are adult bible fellowships?
Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs for short!) are our Sunday morning classes and communities for adults. These smaller groups provide places to learn and grow in your faith, to meet people, and to find community! Many ABFs have formed based on age and stage of life of attendees, but all are welcome to join any group at any time.
Teachers rotate through ABFs, communicating truth that is both Biblical and practical in nature. As teachers cycle through, the teaching style naturally varies from discussion-based to lecture.
when do adult bible fellowships meet?
ABFs are offered during first service (9:00am to 10:20am) and second service (10:50am to 12:15pm). Check below for a list of classes, descriptions, and locations.
