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 (Start August 21st)
The Land of the Bible
Teacher: Gerad Hall
This class is designed for anyone who wants to develop a geographical understanding of Israel and the role it plays; recognize God’s heart for Israel (both the Land & the People); and increase their passion for God’s Word & God’s Son. If you’re hoping to join us for our tour of Israel this will be a great primer.
Introducing the Old Testament
Teacher: Ron May
This class offers an introduction to the message of the Old Testament and the story of Israel. The class will investigate the major themes of the Old Testament books that narrate Israel’s history from the call of Abraham through the return from exile by looking through the Torah, Joshua through II Kings, Chronicles and Ezra through Nehemiah.
Teacher: David Howell
This ABF will be studying the book of Exodus and the life of Moses as he leads God’s people, Israel, out of Egypt to the promise land.
Old Testament Prophetical Books (Zephaniah – Malachi)
Teacher: Al Knott
In this series of lessons we will be studying the last four books of the Old Testament. We will focus on the nation of Israel and Israel’s reaction to each of the prophetical writings. We will also study the relevance of each message as it pertains to us today and how to apply the truth of God’s Word in our lives. This will be an interactive class so bring your questions and be
prepared to discuss Israel’s relationship with Jehovah and our relationship with God as well.
