What Are ABF’s?
The Adult Bible Fellowships (ABF’s) provide opportunities for adults to grow spiritually through their study of the Bible and through involvement and interaction with other adults. The classes offer an atmosphere of friendship, nurture, and encouragement. Each class studies the Bible together and opportunity is given to ask questions and discuss the life-changing principles of the Word of God. The application of the Bible is the focus of each group. The relationships that develop from growing together as a result of study together produces friendships that last for a lifetime.
Within the ABF’s you will find a group of people who will pray with you and for you. If you want to grow, then ABF’s are just what you are looking for.
Adult Bible Fellowships are your place to BELONG!
A Real church is more than a place to attend. It ought to be a group of people to whom you belong and where you are needed. The ABF’s provide that type of connection because they are designed to do so. Time for fellowship and refreshment is more than incidental — it is a vital part of what ABF’s are all about!
1. The people in your ABF are the people with whom you can learn and grow.
2. The people in your ABF are the people with whom you can serve.
3. The people in your ABF are the people with whom you can do things, such as retreats, activities, outings, home meetings, etc.
If you are looking for more than a place to attend, but a place where you can learn, develop and serve with others, then the ABF Ministry is for you.
