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

The Gospel Of Luke

Led by Dr. Ken Hanna, Room E
Luke is every man’s Gospel, the good news of salvation for all humanity regardless of gender, social status, ethnicity, or position. Written by Luke, the beloved physician, God’s love for lost humanity permeates the Gospel of Luke. As Luke’s presentation of Jesus unfolds, people from all walks of life are drawn to the Savior and they are never disappointed. Join us as we see Jesus bring healing and new life to those that are hurting and helpless.

Friends (Special Needs Class for Adults)

We believe regardless of disability God has equipped all his people to know Him in a personal way. Appropriate age is teenage and above.

Getting to the Heart of Parenting with Paul Tripp

Video/Discussion Series Led by Pastor Craig Johnson, Room D     Beginning Sunday, January 14
“Parenting is more than using your power to get children to behave in certain ways. Parenting is all about the exposure and change of the child’s heart. When the heart of a child changes, the behavioral change that is needed, will last.”
Join us as we consider the family, behavior, and change from a biblical perspective.  This series with Paul Tripp, a Pastor and a Seminary Professor, will address parenting children of all ages.
“Learn how to be an instrument of heart changing grace, in the little moments of life, that God will give you with your children, whether they are toddlers or teens.”
