Sunday Classes (Adult Bible Fellowships)Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) classes are an important "next step" beyond attending worship services. ABFs are a time of teaching and discussion with an aim of building relationships around God's Word. Also, coffee and snacks await you in class. ABFs are offered September through June at 10:15 a.m. after the completion of our 8:30 a.m. Heritage Service and 9:00 a.m. Contemporary Service, and finish in time to attend our 11:15 a.m. Contemporary Service. Classes are designed to let you join any ABF in any week. The locations on campus listed below are shown on this ABF Rooms Map.

All because we have a personal relationship with Christ, we have God’s living presence in us, living in us. The result is we have the ability to reflect His Fruit and character. Join us for this important subject as we deepen our knowledge of God’s expectations, power, and presence as we are shaped and transformed with Christ-like character.
