The Adult Bible Fellowships at Faith Bible Church seek to create opportunities for deep connection and authentic relationships with others because of our belief is that building genuine, Christ-centered community is one of the key factors in the sanctification of all believers.

We encourage all who attend Faith Bible Church to get connected in one of our Adult Bible Fellowships.

ABFs at Faith Bible Church are designed to achieve four main objectives:

  • Connection with One Another
  • Member Care
  • Outreach/Mission
  • Biblical teaching

Currently we offer a wide variety of ABFs on Sunday mornings at both 9:45 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. Groups range in size from 15 to 75 people, and each ABF meets in an adult classroom within Faith Bible Church. Please note that some groups are multi-generational, while others are focused on a certain stage of life. If you have any questions about our Adult Bible Fellowships, please contact Seth Brown, Pastor of Adult Connections.

Below we have provided a detailed group listing, but please check back often as new groups begin throughout the year.
