CONNECTING & COMMUNICATING IN AN SMALL GROUP SETTING
Adult Bible Fellowships (ABF)
ABFs are designed to facilitate fellowship and interaction around biblical topics while providing opportunities for relationship building and community outreach. The goal is to encourage and build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11) while spurring each other unto love and good works (Hebrews 10:24). We seek to know Christ and be transformed by the Word of Truth and the power of the Holy Spirit, resulting in an outflow of service from hearts filled with gratitude and love.
ABFs come in two distinct flavors: Life-stage groups, and General groups. The Life-stage ABFs focus primarily on age-group fellowship and community building, and are strongly relational. General ABFs focus principally on teaching, with a goal to help believers grow in spirit and truth. Regardless of the type of ABF, expect to be challenged to grow in your knowledge of Christ and experience of His presence and life.
(Unless otherwise noted, all ABFs meet on Sunday morning from 9:20 – 10:15 am)
Life-Stage Groups ~
Life Stage: Seniors, Retired
Leader: Maynerd Sandberg
General Groups/Classes ~
• Café Study
Format: Teaching with discussion covering a broad range of topics. Whether new perspectives or long-held beliefs, this group seeks to understand the whole counsel of God as revealed in scripture, and grow in the truth. Come join the discussion and prepare to be challenged!
Leader: John Meader
• Fireside Room Study
Format: With a more traditional expository style, this group walks through various books of the bible to uncover the truths therein. If you're wired to learn line by line and precept upon precept, this group will suit you well. Great for building a basic foundation in the faith.
