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.
Spring ABFs (January 10th )
Senior Fellowship Class
Teacher: David Howell
Our ABF class will be studying Genesis in the coming semester.
The Hole in Our Holiness
Teachers: Gerad Hall and Alex Logan
This class will examine a noticeable concern with Christianity today: the struggle of being passionate people who lack personal holiness. Kevin DeYoung’s book The Hole In Our Holiness will be our launch pad into a discussion and study of Scripture’s view of holiness. Whether you feel competent to discuss holiness or you don’t know the first place to start, this class will engage and challenge you in your relationship with Jesus and the way that relationship plays out in your daily life.
Teacher: Beth Fox
There are many dimensions of discipleship with which Christians have difficulty. Those surveyed, however, said their number one area of confusion or challenge is how to be a more effective or faithful witness to Jesus Christ. A reviewer of this study wrote, “Jesus implored us to pray for laborers to go into the harvest. Here is a tool that puts legs on that prayer and helps instill passion to sustain it.” Come learn what it means to be GOSPELfree so we can become GRACEfueled witnesses in our day to day lives.
The Gospel of John, Part 2
Teacher: Al Knott
We will continue from where we stopped in December 2015. We will see how John presents Jesus as God and Jesus’ relationship with His disciples as He prepares them for service after His crucifixion and resurrection. We invite you to attend this class and experience Jesus in a way that will excite and encourage you in your Christian life.
Introducing the New Testament
Teacher: Ron May
NT101 Introducing the New Testament. This class offers an introduction to the 27 books of the New Testament. The class will investigate the literature, events, and message of the New Testament, including the organization and basic geography of the New Testament. We will look into the key events in the life of Christ, historical context of the intertestamental period, and the authorship, theme, setting and purpose of the individual books on the New Testament.
