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.
Fall ABFs (August 18th – December 8th)
Senior Fellowship Class
Teacher: David Howell
Join us as we study 1st and 2nd Thessalonians and read about Paul’s letters about the end times.
Life Changing Sermons of the Bible Part II
Teacher: Al Knott
This will be a study of four sermons recorded in the New Testament; two by the Apostle Paul and two by Jesus. We will study how these sermons impacted the lives of those who heard them abd how the sermons impact our lives today. These are timeless sermons that changed lives 2000 years ago and are still changing lives today. You will want to be a part of this class as we discuss how the Word of God is alive and active in our world today. It will be an interactive class so be prepared to ask questions and participate in biblically-centered discussions.
Survey of the Old Testament
Teachers: Roy Klavitter, Janice Simmons, and Max Ellicott
A person will never properly understand the New Testament scriptures if the Old Testament scriptures remain a mystery. Come join us for a great time of discussion and fellowship as we do an overview of the Old Testament.
Every Good Endeavor
Teacher: Mark Barr
Based on Timothy Keller’s book Every Good Endeavor, this class will explore God’s plan for integrating our faith and work. It will be a study and workshop in practical application.
Teachers: Ron May and Gerad Hall
God is clear that children are a blessing from God. They are. Parenting, helping your children successfully navigate the stages of growing up, is the wonderful responsibility that God gives along with the blessing of children. Our hop is that this class will be both helpful and encouraging for people in the midst of parenting, whether your child is a newborn or you are an empty-nester. Join us with your personal insights, questions, observations, and concerns.
