Adult Bible Fellowships (ABF)

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.—Ephesians 5:1-2

What is an Adult Bible Fellowship?

One of the ways we connect in community at Bethel is through mid-size classes throughout the week. These Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs) provide a context to make friends, learn together, and serve.

EFCA Distinctives – Led by Pastor Gary Ellingson, Room A (Started January 22)
Join Pastor Gary Ellingson as he shares a second session of distinctives of the Evangelical Free Church of America. Recognizing that many of us have grown up in different denominations, this course will help you better understand what it means to be Evangelical Free. Books will be available to purchase in class for $20. *This is not a continuation of the class offered last semester. It’s the same class offered again.

The Legacy Journey – Led by Jim Dunkel, Room B (Starts March 5)
The Legacy Journey is a 7 week, biblically based class that teaches you how to truly live and leave a legacy for generations to come. This class will lead you deeper into investing, basic estate planning, purposeful living, safeguarding your legacy, and discovering the keys to generational wealth and true generosity. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small-group activities, you’ll learn a biblical framework for living intentionally now so that later you’ll be able to leave a legacy that will secure your family’s future and make a lasting impact on the world around you. Sign up online asap to get your materials in time for class!

Zechariah – Led by Ken Hanna, Room E
The prophet Zechariah is the most intensely Messianic prophet of the Old Testament. The New Testament, particularly the Gospels, refer to his prophecy over 40 times. He offered hope to the Jewish exiles as they returned to the ruins of Jerusalem and faced an uncertain future. His message of hope resonates today for all who look forward to the return of Christ. Join Kenyon Williams, Alan Bruns, and Ken Hanna for a time of digging into the book of Zecheriah. Join us anytime.

Sundays at 10:45 a.m.

Friends (Special Needs Class for Adults)– Led by Brenda Hansen, Randy Finley, and Ramona Burchill, Room A
Our Friends class is a Bible study for adults with developmental disabilities. Lessons are ability-appropriate and use the intellect of the individual as well as music and crafts to encourage the understanding of Bible stories, helping others, prayer, and Jesus Christ. We believe regardless of disability God has equipped all his people to know Him in a personal way. Appropriate age is teenage and above.

Financial Peace University – Led by Stan & Jocie Wiens, Room B (Starts March 5)
Using the Financial Peace University curriculum, we are seeking to lead our people to financial maturity by cultivating a culture of giving in the church and community. Financial Peace University is a DVD study based on Dave Ramsey’s Proven Principles for living debt-free. This new session of the class is only 9 weeks! Cost for kit is $93. Register online and early in order to get your materials here in time for the first class!
