What is an Adult Bible Fellowship?

Adult Bible Fellowship’s are mid-sized communities between 15 and 90 people who meet to learn, extend care, and serve together. Some ABF’s meet on campus and are assembled by stage of life and age. We also have ABF’s that meet in homes throughout the area.

ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship)

On site small communities who meet Sunday to learn, extend care, and serve together.

HABF (Home Adult Bible Fellowship)

Small communities who meet off-site to learn, extend care, and serve together.
