ADULT BIBLE FELLOWSHIPS 

Our ABFs meet every Sunday morning. and provide excellent teaching, fellowship and opportunities to go deeper in your walk with Christ. ABFs often involve prayer groups, service projects and social activities outside of class. Groups are typically based on age, life-stage or special interest, but the structure is not rigid. We want you to find the class that fits you best.

Find a group that’s right for you by viewing the ABF Brochure.

Foundation Seminars are short-term, content-driven courses designed to help you grow in a particular area of interest or need. These seminars help us comprehend the subtle intricacies and overarching truths of our God and the theology, ministry and history He has authored. Foundation Seminars are styled as lectures and discussion, with occasional reading assignments outside of class. Our vision for Foundation Seminars is to help adults acquire a comprehensive Christian education resulting in spiritual growth and service to God and others.

Sundays | 5 pm | FC201 | Taught by Eddie and Betsy Watkins & Steve and Casey Quinton
Cost: $15 per person

Called 2 Love is a 40-day journey into marriage intimacy, showing you how to love like you’ve been loved.  You can experience deepened closeness, freedom to share all of yourself, healing for disappointments and hurts, skills to pass on a legacy of love, and clarity on how God can involve you and your marriage in kingdom plans.  Although this is a 6 week class, it is an opportunity to gain insights that will last a lifetime.  One of the Called 2 Love authors writes,  “This is unlike any marriage book you have ever read.  Mainly because it does more than give you words to read.  This book offers specific biblical truths for you to experience which will change the way you think and act toward your spouse  Included in each chapter — following a series of daily devotionals — are experientials for you to engage in.   These experientials will guide you to explore your own personal story, your marriage story, and Jesus’ story — the One who has the power to bring change to your life.”

Called 2 Love is offered in person or via Zoom and is a 6 week class (February 21 – March 28, 5:00 – 6:15 p.m.).  The in-person class will meet in FC201.  The cost for the book is $15.00, and each participant will need their own.  You will be contacted when these books can be picked up from the church office.
