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 (August 16th – December 6th)
Senior Fellowship Class
Teacher: David Howell
Our ABF class will be studying Philemon, Ephesians & Colossians in the coming semester.
The Gospel of John
Teacher: Al Knott
Our study this quarter will feature the Gospel of John. Our purpose will be to focus on Jesus and his relationship with the people in order that they and the readers of the Gospel would believe in Him as their Savior. John records events and miracles of Jesus not mentioned in the other three Gospels and we will study these as they point to salvation through Jesus. Be prepared to be part of an interactive class that will cause you to think about your
relationship with Jesus.
Love and Respect
Teacher: Mark & Nancy Barr, Kevin & Megan Kelly
What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God
intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect!
The Second String
Ever consider the purpose God had for the Old Testament prophets? Were they always proclaiming “gloom and doom”? Are their prophesies even
relevant today in our society? Join us as we find these answers.
Ecclesiology: The Church in Community
Teacher: Ron May
Ecclesiology (ED222) examines the doctrine of the church. The focus of class will be on Community in the Church answering questions like: What is
Biblical Community; How is Biblical Community developed or hampered; How living in Biblical Community impacts believers personally, the larger congregation and the world in which we live. Small Group Leaders, Counselors and folks who have a heart for people will find this class encouraging and helpful. This is a School of the Bible class but will be live lectures rather than video instruction. People are encouraged to join the class even if you don’t want to complete the homework for a Certificate from WSoB.
