Next Steps - Adult Classes

Our adult ABF classes starting January 7

Class options:


1st Peter: In the midst of suffering, do you ask WHY (is this happening to me)

or WHAT (am I to learn through this)? Peter focuses on the WHAT and

the results that suffering can produce. 

Teacher: Rich Kornoelje - Rm The View

The Fold

2 Samuel in Redemptive History

The reign of King David in 2 Samuel represents a breakthrough in God's plan to

redeem the world. The covenants that God had already made with his people, first

with Abraham and then with Israel, culminate in God's promise to give David an

eternal kingdom. The unrighteousness of the later kings of Israel and Judah

would eventually lead to God's punishment through exile to a foreign land.

But God's promise of an eternal kingdom means that David's family will ultimately

bring a worldwide blessing for all peoples, most notably in the last and greatest

Son of David, Jesus Christ.

Teacher: Steve Holman - Rm L017

Strong Foundation

1 John: John wrote to churches full of discouragement but he wanted his readers

to experience true fellowship with God and with God's people.

Teacher: Kevin Groothuis - Rm L014A


The Assurance of Victory Over Sin. No Christian should live in defeat day after day

year after year. No Christian should feel hopeless in their struggle against sin. We will

show you why and how. It is the promise of God!

Teacher: Dave DeCook - Rm L018

Overview of the Bible

The book of Genesis will be reviewed, and this will be done by looking at each event,

and people in those events, to understand what God would have us learn. By taking

this approach, we can begin to see God's sovereignty and His plan for His people;

and how this would reverberate through the Bible into the New Testament.

Teacher: Dan Mills - Rm L037

Managing Our Finances God's Way

This class will inspire you to live debt-free and manage your finances. This will enable you

to respond to God's calling on your life in a way that will honor him. This class is 6 weeks

long and will start on January 7. The cost is $15 per book/cd combo. This class will require

significant homework (tracking spending, creating spending plans, creating debt

elimination plans) but will change the way you manage and think about finances.

This will be limited to the first 10 individuals or couples signing up.

Teacher: Jeff Irvin - Rm L014B
