What is an ABF?
ABF stands for Adult Bible Fellowship. Sometimes the church can seem large and it’s hard to get to know other people. ABFs are a way to learn about God’s word together in a smaller setting; one small enough to make friends in. ABFs meets weekly on Sunday mornings throughout the church. There are many to choose from, so we are confident you can find one that’s right for you!
As an ABF we typically start with 10-15 minutes of social time. We then transition to announcements and “what’s happening” with our class/Maranatha. We pray and then spend the remainder of our time discovering what God has for us from His Word. We let scripture explain scripture. Occasionally there are topical studies like “Who were the major prophets?” but typically we study a book of the Bible. Participation and questions are encouraged.

Mike’s mission for the class is to love God and people! Everyone who steps into this class is family, and the desire is to make everyone feel a part of the family. This class is a balance of discussion, teaching the Bible, prayer, and time in community groups.

John Wiseman’s Sermon-Based ABF
We are now doing sermon-based studies in our ABF. Each week there will be ample time for review, discussion, and application of the teachings and truths revealed in God’s Word based on the previous week’s sermon in the auditorium.
Sermon-based studies are designed to help us to better understand and then apply Sunday morning sermons in our daily lives.

Find Your Place at Our Place, Room 505
Our ABF consists of people who desire to carefully study God’s Word in a loving, caring, serving community. We are a multi-generational class and our members include grandparents and children (and literally all ages in between)! Our goal is to understand what God has to say as we learn from His Word verse by verse and we strive to apply those principles to our everyday life. We are a close community, but we always welcome new friends. We provide opportunities throughout the year for families to build relationships at planned activities. If you are looking for a place to study God’s Word in-depth while also building strong relationships, this ABF is for you. Join us this Sunday!
