An ABF is where you are known, cared for, and encouraged in your relationship with Christ.
Adult Bible Fellowships, or ABFs, are a great "next step" beyond attending the worship service. Classes made up of anywhere from 10-40 adults provides those in the same stage of life to study God’s Word and share experiences with one another. Each group studies the Bible together and provides opportunities to ask questions and discuss the life-changing principles of the Word of God. Friendships developed from growing together in The Word often last a lifetime.
Take a look at the ABFs and their descriptions and “try one out” that you think would fit you best. Our groups always welcome new members. Whether you go to the worship service during the first or second hour, there will be an ABF where you can get connected.
