What is an ABF?
The letters “ABF” stand for “Adult Bible Fellowship.” ABFs are the medium sized groups at Wildwood. Just as Jesus had a group of 70 or so regular followers, we have ABFs for the study of scripture and the Christian life in a more informal setting.
How many ABFs are there? When do they meet?
We currently we have between four and eight different ABFs, depending upon the season. The classes are multi-generational, with some meeting at 9:00am and some at 10:30am.
Why should I go?
We are happy to have you attend our morning worship services, but those are large gatherings and do not afford great opportunities for developing friendships, sharing prayer needs or truly feeling part of the Wildwood family. ABFs provide all of these opportunities.
How do I join?
We encourage you to try out the class that most interests you for a few weeks and see how it fits. Feel free to visit more than one class before you make a decision. It is that simple! If you come to church during the middle of an ABF quarter, don’t hesitate to hop into a class.
ABFs Starting December 2nd
Senior Fellowship Class
Teacher: David Howell
Seniors are invited to join this class for a time of fellowship and study in the book of Acts.
Exploring Christianity’s 10 Toughest Questions
Teacher: Terry Barber
1 Peter 3:15 sates that believers are to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope you have.” How would you answer a non-Christian who believes that evidence strongly supports a view that God does not exist and that Christians fail to provide good reasons to accept their beliefs? This class will study some Christianity’s toughest questions and give you knowledge that will help you clearly present your beliefs to those who have doubts about the Christian faith.
God’s Plan for the Ages
Teacher: Al Knott
Beginning with Genesis and continuing through Revelation, the Bible teachers us that God has been working out His plan. In this ABF study, we will look at the various stages in God’s timetable (from man’s innocence to the kingdom age) as He brings His plan to fruition. This study will help you to understand how God’s special creation (men & women) fit into His plan. Be part of an interactive class that will challenge you and encourage you as you live the Christian life.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Mark
Teacher: Jana Gosa
Please join me in this fast paced gospel that shows us the three year ministry of our Lord. Mark focuses on His service and sacrifice while allowing us to see the “human side” of the Son of God. During our time together you will also learn ways to study God’s Word for yourself and how to share this knowledge with others!
Financial Peace University
Teacher: Ron May
Financial Peace University with Dave Ramsey is a life-changing program that teaches people to achieve their financial goals by eliminating debt, saving for the future, and investing in things they value.
I’m Not Just Here for Show
Teachers: Travis and Anna McCrumb (and many more)
In this 13 week class taught by an entire team of teachers, we will delve into various topics that often arise in marriage today. We will be approaching marriage from the real-world example offered to Christians through the Bible as well as several authors that have plenty to teach married couples at all stages in their walk together and with God. With the help of teachers in all walks of married life, there will be something for everyone and all are welcome to join in the class as we celebrate God’s gift of marriage.
