2017 Fall ABF Classes
Join us for an Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) class beginning September 3 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.
Teacher: Gretchen Leigh
Location: Conference Room
Topic: The "N" Commandments
Specifically for young adults
Jesus commanded his followers not to do a few things. But his Not commandments were so extreme, his followers were tempted Not to try. Then he rose from the dead, and everything changed. This 6-week series will cover Jesus’ Commandments; fear not, doubt not, worry not, and more. We’ll uncover the question, when you see your resurrected savior, what do you have to be afraid of, doubt, or worry about? (This class will begin Aug. 27th.)
Teacher: Carl Brinkmann
Location: Open area of the Great Room
Topic: Learning Life's Principles from the Prophets of the Old Testament
The prophets of the Old Testament ministered at different times (famine, drought, economic prosperity, decline, corruption, spiritual renewal). They come from different backgrounds (priest, judge, farmer, shepherd, friend of king, enemy of king). They had ministries that lasted for only weeks or for over 40 years. All had in common that they brought God’s truth to the people of their day. As we study the lives of these prophets we will see mirrored many of our own present day situations and find application for our own personal lives.
Teacher: Jim Mason
Location: Sanctuary at approximately 9:40 a.m.
Topic: Paul's Letter to the Galatians
In his commentary on Galatians, Martin Luther said, “The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom of the world. Jealous for its own religious views, the world in turn charges the Gospel with being a subversive and licentious doctrine, offensive to God and man, a doctrine to be persecuted as the worst plague on earth.”
Paul is absolutely on fire in his letter to the Galatians. He pours out anger, concern and correction. Since this is an inspired epistle, we know that the harsh words said in defense of the Gospel are what God wanted to say through Paul He makes one of the clearest presentations of the Gospel to be found. By nature, mankind always gravitates to adding something to the Gospel. We will look at that tendency and how to avoid it to stay close to Christ.
