Adult – this word identifies the participants. The classes are for Adults — from college-age to Senior citizens.
Bible – this word identifies the subject matter. It’s about the Bible. Adults are studying what the Bible has to say about life and relationships.
Fellowship – this word identifies the atmosphere of the class. It’s inviting. It’s sharing. It’s community.
During the Summer of 2017 (after meeting in their classrooms at 9:30 am), three of the Adult Classes (Koinonia, Berean, and ekklesia) will meet together in the Worship Center for Bible study electives. (See the schedule below.) PLEASE NOTE: These Electives are open to ALL adults.
The other two Adult classes (Lydia Ladies and Life Matters) will meet in their classrooms for the entire ABF hour.
The Lydia Ladies Class meets in the southwest wing of the church’s lower level. Starting June 18, 2017, this class, taught by Sandy Bolden, will be continue the study the life of David.
Life Matters meets in the Upper Room (above the lobby). Starting June 18, 2017, this class, led by Peter Pollet, will continue the “Discerning the Voice of God” video series by Priscilla Shirer as the basis for their study and discussion. Class members are generally college-age and young adults.
ekklesia class members are from a wide range of ages and backgrounds which is appropriate because “ekklesia” is the Greek work for “church.” The class meets in the north end of the Fellowship Hall, closest to the main level bathrooms and nurseries.
The Berean Class meets in the South end of the Fellowship Hall (by the Church Office area). Class members are generally in their mid-40’s to late-60’s.
The Koinonia Class meets in the Worship Center. Class members, consisting of our Senior Saints, are generally in their late-60’s and up. Hearing assistance is available in the Worship Center.
