In an ABF, you will find excellent teaching, friendly people and opportunities to go deeper in your walk with Christ. Adult Bible Fellowships meet every Sunday morning. ABFs often involve prayer groups, service projects and social activities outside of class. While Adult Bible Fellowships are typically based on age, life-stage or special interest, the structure is not rigid, and we want you to find the class that fits you best. ABF classes are designed for you to join and remain in for as long as you desire.

Our vision for ABFs is that individuals would CONNECT to the Body of Christ through relationships, fellowship and social interaction; GROW in faith through the teaching, discussion and application of God’s Word; and BELONG in a loving community based on encouragement, care, support and prayer.

Find A Class

The best way to find an ABF is to visit several classes until you find your perfect fit. While all of our classes are centered on God’s Word, they each have a unique focus and format. For example, some classes emphasize small groups while others have a combination of lecture and discussion in a large group. Some classes focus on marriage and family relationships and some study verse-by-verse through books of the Bible. Some tend to have students of all ages and some are more focused by age. Visit several, and contact Scott Wylie if you would like to talk about the various options.

Recalibrate- 11:10 AM / Room FC201 (Taught by Joel Thimsen)

Perhaps you've been a Christian for years, or maybe you’re new to the faith. Perhaps you're newly married and you long to be more grounded as a Christian couple, or maybe you’re a single adult who desires to live wisely. Perhaps you're a parent and you desire to raise your children to the glory of God. When you think about your faith, you may be thinking - “Can I do this?" Or maybe you find yourself in a rut. This class is called Recalibrate because it communicates our intent as a community to honestly assess, change course when needed, and orient everything we do in light of the Gospel. Our goal is to dig deeply into God’s Word, and allow the truth we find there to Recalibrate our lives. We are working through a curriculum called The Gospel Project for Adults which goes through the major themes and story line of the Bible in three years. Incidentally, if you’re a parent, ColonialKids uses The Gospel Project for Kids at the same time as our class so your entire family will study the same passage and theme each Sunday.
