ABF Summer Electives 2012

For the months of June and July we will be offering five different Adult Bible Fellowship electives. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so this Sunday, May 27. Please sign-up at the Info Center or in your current ABF.

Foundations: Millions of Christians have decided that the Bible is out of date. They’ve decided that the words of Jesus aren’t always true. The Foundations—Ken Ham’s signature DVD series based on 30 years of ministry—reveals the alarming state of Christianity today. Today, possibly more than at any time in America’s history, a culture detached from God and willingly ignorant of His hand in creation and world events needs Jesus. But the church is not nearly as effective in reaching the lost as it was only a generation ago. Sessions cover: Relevance of Genesis; Revealing the Unknown God; One Blood, One Race; Defending the Faith; In Six Days; Death the Enemy.

Work Matters: connecting Sunday worship to Monday work. For some this word represents drudgery and the mundane. For others work is an idol to be served. If you find yourself anywhere on the spectrum from workaholic to weekend warrior, it’s time to bridge the gap between Sunday worship and Monday work.

This ABF outlines God’s purposes for work in a way that helps us to make the most of our vocation and to join God in his work in the world. Discover a new perspective on work that will transform your workday and make the majority of your waking hours matter, not only now, but for eternity.

Give Them Grace. All of us want to raise good kids. And we want to be good parents. But what exactly do we mean by “good?” And is “being good” really the point?

We must tell our kids of the grace-giving God who freely adopts rebels and transforms them into loving sons and daughters. If this is not the message your children hear, if you are just telling them to “be good,” then the gospel needs to transform your parenting too.

Give Them Grace is a biblical perspective on parenting that shows us how to receive the gospel afresh and give grace in abundance, helping our children know the dazzling love of Jesus and respond with heartfelt obedience.

Galatians Book Study. The apostle Paul’s letter to the believers in Galatia nurtures trust and assurance in Christ. The themes of this book continue to energize and enlighten Christians today.

When God Weeps: Why Our Suffering Matters to the Almighty (Ladies Only ABF).  If God is loving, why is there suffering? What’s the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When suffering touches our lives, questions like these suddenly demand an answer.

  1. These topics look interesting. Is there a possibility on having a session next year on starting a Bible study in my child’s public school or how to start an effective Bible study at work? It would be helpful to identify who to talk to at the school and at work as well as what to say and what materials to have ready. Thank you, David

  2. I didn’t make the sign up date is it too late to attend on of these?

    • You would be welcome to attend either the Foundations with Ken Ham or the Parenting one. The other two are filled at this time. Hope that helps!

      • Thats the one that I am interested in 🙂 Is that going to be in the main auditorium?

  3. The Ken Ham Foundations series

  4. You’re correct. The Foundations series will be shown in the auditorium.

  5. This morning was wonderful in the auditorium with Ken Ham! I think everyone in the church needs to be in on this especially the kids!! Hopefully this series can be repeated church wide in the near future…possibly on Sunday nights!

  6. Wow, the Ken Ham presentation was exactly what we need! I agree with Lisa that this should be shared with our Children. I can’t wait until next week.
