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.

Fall 2017

Sunday morning classes start on September 17.

Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

EFCA Distinctives
Led by Gary Ellingson, Room C
Join Pastor Gary Ellingson as he shares 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. 

Love That Lasts: When Marriage Meets Grace
Led by Pastor Craig Johnson and Kenyon Williams, Room D
Marriage is a profound and marvelous mystery established by God for his glory-and that is for our good. So many marital relationships never reach their greatest potential because they have the fatal limitation of being focused on one another. When our focus is solely on God, our marriages have the potential to thrive and not merely survive. Cost for this book is $10.

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.

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.

Why I Still Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist

Summer 2017

Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

A Praying Life – Led by Pastor Craig Johnson, Room E
June 4 through August 27
We all have our struggles with prayer and questions about the nature and practice of prayer. We want prayer to be a natural part of our daily lives, but it doesn’t seem to be. Through the teaching and interaction in this class we will develop a proper, biblical understanding of prayer, as well as focus on the practical application of praying for ourselves, our families, and watching how God works in others and us as we grow in a praying life.

Join Pastor Craig Johnson at 9 a.m. each Sunday starting June 4, 2017. Books and discussions guides are $15 and will be available on the first day of the summer Adult Bible Fellowship.
