Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF)
ABFs are our Sunday morning classes and communities for adults--places to both learn & grow in your faith, and to meet people & 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.
Check out the below for more information on each of these communities and their teaching schedules!
