Adult Bible Fellowship

2018 Spring ABF Classes

Join us for an Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) class beginning March 4 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. between our two worship services (unless otherwise noted).  We encourage every adult to take part in the fellowship, encouragement and teaching of one of our ABF options.


Class 1

Teacher: Carl Brinkmann
Location:
Open area of the Great Room
Topic: The 10 Greatest Struggles of Your Life

Carl will be presenting concepts from the book by Pastor Colin Smith, The 10 Greatest Struggles of Your Life. The study opens up the 10 Commandments to show them to be more than a list of dos and don'ts, but rather a barometer of your love for God (matters of the heart). He calls them "our 10 greatest struggles", such as our struggle with worship, religion, time, authority, purity, integrity, truth, and contentment.


Class 2

Teacher: Jim Mason
Location: Sanctuary at approximately 9:40 a.m.
Topic: God's Transforming Grace in Troubled Times

2 Peter applies to our day as it teaches that the grace of God in Christ transforms and empowers Christians to live righteously in the face of opposition. He spells out his greatest concerns, his confidence in the Word of God and His look forward to the return of Christ. Peter says that the letter is to "stimulate us to wholesome thinking." That will be the purpose of the ABF, too!


Class 3

Teacher: Nick Henthorn
Location: SE corner of the Great Room
Topic: What Did Jesus Teach?

To be a Christian is to be a follower of Jesus. He says to us, "take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Before God called us to himself, we were slaves to sin. Jesus calls us to cast off that yoke and take on his own. So if we mean to bind ourselves to Jesus, let's make sure we know what he has to say about how we can serve him well.


Class 4

Teacher: Scott Johnson
Location: NE corner of the Great Room
Topic: What Does the Bible Say about...?

A look at what Scripture actually says (or doesn't say) about a wide range of contemporary topics, such as marriage, sexuality, substance use/abuse, government, abortion, finances, etc., with an eye toward forming and communicating a clear and intentional Christian worldview.


Class 5

Teacher: Jim Bos
Location: 
Woodridge Retirement (across the street from the church)
Time: 10-11 a.m.
Topic: 
God Loves You - He Always Has, He Always Will!

This is a 10-week study. We will also be doing an Easter lesson on Easter Sunday.
