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.
Who goes to ABFs? When do they meet?
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.
Summer ABFs (May 31st – August 9th)
Senior Fellowship Class

Our ABF class will be studying 1st & 2nd Timothy in the coming semester. The study of the Apostle Paul’s letter to a young preacher with his instructions to maintain the faith and ensure the continuity of the Church of Jesus Christ.
The Ten Greatest Struggles of Your Life
We struggle with time. We struggle with truth and authority. We struggle for peace, for purity and contentment…and that’s just the beginning. This life is not easy. Anyone who tries to seriously live a life with these qualities is soon convinced we are desperately in need of help. Join us as we explore the ten greatest struggles of our lives and the strength Christ gives through His Word and our faith to press on.
Have you ever wrestled with doubt, questions, fears, and uncertainty? Did you know that God can use these seemingly undesirable traits to increase our faith? This will be a discussion-based class that will utilize the book No Doubt (available & recommended for purchase) by John Ortberg. Please join us for great fellowship and discussion as we see how God can encourage us through adversity to give us a hope and a future. God’s strength is perfected in weakness (II Cor 12:9).
Teacher: Ron May
