ABF meets from 9:00–10:10 a.m. on Sundays and precedes our 10:30 a.m. worship service. 

The Launch Class
(Greg & Tracy Rader and Jon Sikes)
The House, Room 202

We’re studying how to build a solid foundation for life based on the truth of God’s Word. Whether you are “launching” as a single young adult or as a nearly/newly married couple, join us as together we seek to strengthen our faith, our love, our hope and the spiritual disciplines that will be needed for a lifetime of walking with Christ.

Homebuilders
(Jim & Sherry Jackson)
Room 312

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain” Psalm 127:1. This class is for young marrieds beginning their family and with toddler and preschool children. Although God is Sovereign in every area of our lives, He has given us responsibilities to carry out according to His plans. HomeBuilders’ aim is to understand and work with God as He unfolds His plans, building our lives, marriages and families.

Journey
(Phil Bruce, Zach West, &
Seth McDevitt) Room 420

This class is for adults (30s & 40s) with elementary aged children. We walk through the Bible together and challenge one another to be intentional in reaching out. We teach on a variety of topics from theology, expositional studies and church history to parenting and reaching the next generation. We do monthly fellowships—come join us! 

Next Steps
(Jermal Bridges & Marty Brown)
Room 407

Primarily for 40-somethings with pre-teen and teenage children. The Apostle Paul exhorted Christians that as they had been walking so as to please God, to “excel still more.” That thought will guide us as we search the Scriptures to continue the next steps in our walk with God personally, with our families, and in our work and church.

The Potter’s Clay
(Asir “Jeba” Jebaraj & Wil Glenn)
Room 415

Adults, young and old are welcome in this class. Genesis may be the book most familiar to Christians; children often begin their study with the first book of the Bible. Luke 24:27 states that Jesus, “beginning at Moses and all the prophets, expounded unto the two disciples the things concerning himself in all the Scriptures.” In our study in Genesis, we will search for the many obvious and subtle references and prophesies about Jesus. Join us and may the Holy Spirit open our eyes to see wonders in this ancient book.

Salt and Light
(Dennis McGee, Rich Smith,
& Chip McWilliams)
Room 401

All adults are welcome; most are 40++. We are walking through the Gospel of Luke in a video series with Alistair Begg. Come join us as God opens our eyes to the life and ministry of Jesus and its practical application to our lives today.

Hope from the Scriptures
(Rocky Hails & David Carrico)
Room 416

Couples, singles, and adults of all seasons of life are welcome to join us for a study of 2 Samuel. Woven through this book centered on David’s reign, we see the themes of God’s provision and presence, His demand for obedience, and His covenant that is fulfilled in Jesus. We desire to be a group of folks who are “well-pleased to impart to you not only the Gospel of God, but our very lives also.”

Answering the Call
(Jonathan Dirrim, Ed Bedrosian, &
Tom Treat) Worship Center

All adults are welcome, whatever circumstance or season of life!  We are currently walking through the books of 1-3 John, exploring the fundamentals of the Gospel and how believers ought to discern truth from error.  Counterfeit Christianity continues to war against God’s people. Come take a closer look with us as we prepare for this battle by recounting the truths of Christ!

Glory Bound Senior Adult Class
(Don Duncan & Gaylord Babb)
Room 106

Presently, we are doing a study of the book of Philippians which includes word study, an application of the Scripture, and a historical background of that time and culture. Join us as together fellowship in God’s Word.

H.I.S. Women
(Kim Rothaus & Lynnie Skeen)
Room 104

Do you need a fresh encounter with God? Are you ready for Him to pour out His grace on the dry, thirsty ground of your heart? In our focus on the needs and failures of those we consider less spiritual than ourselves, and in our drive to perform and to protect our image, we may be missing the heart of the gospel and the grace of Christ. Join our group as we dig in and discuss God’s pathway to freedom, fullness, victory, fruitfulness, and joy. We invite you to visit and experience our heart for the Lord and His Word, our belief in prayer, and our love for one another.

Women of The Word
(Rike Carleton & Peggy Wynn)
Room 107

Discovering Jesus in the feasts of the Lord. Have you ever wondered what the meaning of the Jewish feasts are? Should they matter to us today? Did you know they actually tell the story of redemption through Jesus Christ? Colossians 2:16-17, “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” Join us we discover more about our Savior through the feasts of the Lord established 3500 years ago.

 

The Global Class
(Mike & Leann McGee)
Room 409

A unique class for those seeking the truth of God’s Word and those who are believers in Jesus Christ desiring to dig deeper into the Bible. The class is made up of people from around the world, including some from other religions and Americans who enjoy bringing their international friends. This is a safe and friendly environment for all ages.

Wednesday Groups meet at 6:30 pm during the school year. 

Women’s Bible Study
Gospel of Luke: Good News of Great Joy!
Room 420

Dig deeper into the book of Luke and answers the question: Who is this son of a carpenter who could preach, heal diseases, and cast out demons? Pointing to Jesus as the promised King of kings–his earthly ministry is good news for all, especially the downtrodden, the hurting, and the outsider. Designed for individual or group use, each 10-week workbook features conversational teaching that aims to make in-depth Bible study accessible to women in all seasons of life, along with practical application questions and additional recommended resources. Book is $8.

Room 407

How is your knowledge of God? J.I. Packer says, “Theology (the activity of thinking and speaking about God and the product of that activity) is for doxology and devotion – that is, the praise of God and the practice of godliness.” Join us for a study about the essentials of who God is and how knowing this motivates us toward greater devotion to Him. We will be using the book, Concise Theology by J. I. Packer ($8).

2:7 Series Book 1
(Stephen Cooksey)
Room 415
2:7 Series Book 2
(Rich Smith)
Room 412

This study helps one get established in a daily walk with Bible reading, prayer, and memorizing Scripture. You will learn how to live the balanced Christian life, how to be a faithful evangelist, and grow in your walk with Christ. To sign up for or ask questions about  the next class this fall email Chip/Cindy, heymac333@gmail.com.

What Did You Expect? Marriage Class
(Chip & Cindy McWilliams)
Room 401
REDEEMING THE REALITIES OF MARRIAGE

Unlike other classes that only diagnose horizontal problems, What Did You Expect? fights a much deeper war over the worship of our heart. It’s only when we worship God as Creator, Sovereign and Savior that we will ever love as we should. Paul David Tripp, a counselor, adjunct faculty member, former pastor, and author, places the person and work of Jesus Christ in the middle of the messy and confusing situations and relationships in which every person lives. His goal is to place the Gospel in the hallways, bedrooms, boardrooms, lecture halls, sidewalks, and car rides of  everyday life.

We will be using the book, Concise Theology by J. I. Packer ($8).

Thursday Mornings, 9:30
Mark: Son of God (Vol. 2)
Room 420

This inductive Bible study workbook is designed to assist you in examining the second half of the Gospel of Mark in an inductive way. We are after the author’s original intent; i.e., what the author meant when he wrote the passage to his original audience. In this workbook, you will unpack the meaning by answering a series of questions about the text, paying close attention to the words and context of the passage. After discovering the meaning of the text, there will be questions to help you apply it to your life.
