Sunday morning is a special time of learning and fellowship here at Grace Church. While our children and teens are learning about the Bible in age-appropriate Sunday School classes, the “grown-ups” get a chance to take what the Bible teaches and talk about how it affects everyday life. Practical Bible teaching, small group discussions and personal testimonies, DVD series, and a weekly prayer time…these are just a few of the things that make your ABF a place to belong. ABF classes meet at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. A College and Young Adults class meets at 12:15 p.m.
Summer 2017: Discipleship
As followers of Jesus we are disciples by default, and disciples must be discipling others. But what is discipling and how do you do it?
What are the traits of a disciple?
What makes biblical discipleship unique?
What happens in a discipling relationship?
What are the joys, benefits, and goals?
What are barriers to discipling?
What role does the local church play?
How do you disciple someone who is hurting?
The 9:00am class is led by Don Mills and other lay elders. The 10:30am class is led by Pastor Al Reilly. Both classes meet in Room 207 through August 20th.

Winter/Spring 2017 Adult Bible Fellowships
Journey thru the Bible: New Testament Survey (Room 208)
We will continue our journey through the entire New Testament, considering the background, purpose, and main themes of each book. We will see how the New Testament is one unified message of Christ, his Gospel, and its implications for how we live. Feel free to come and go for whatever particular NT books you would like to study in-depth. Teachers: Joe Schloegal and David Aungst
The Unfolding Mystery: Discovering Christ in the OT (Room 207)
Written in sixty-six separate units over a period of more than a thousand years against a wide variety of cultural backgrounds by people who, for the most part, worked independently of each other, the Bible is a book of unity. The individual books are made up of poetry, hymns, history, sermons, letters, and love songs. Throughout this book is one leading character (God the Creator), one historical perspective (world redemption), one local figure (Jesus of Nazareth), and one harmonious teaching about God and godliness. This study by Edmund P. Clowney will bring clarity and understanding to these four separate parts. This class is open to all ages and is interactive. It’s a great way to connect with other believers, have fun, and be transformed by the Word of God. Teacher: Don Mills
Journeying Together (Women’s Class, Room 204)
The Journeying Together Class is continuing their study with the book Awe by Paul David Tripp. We will finish up at the end of January and then begin Tony Evans’ book Like No Other. There will be a short video each week followed by discussion and prayer. Book is $7. Come join this ladies’ class for some wonderful fellowship and drawing closer to the Lord. Teacher: Linda Reilly
GLORY! An Artistic Study in Isaiah (Room 203)
Do you enjoy art? Come join us as we continue to creatively engage the book of Isaiah, developing reverence towards God’s holiness and glory, building up the Body of Christ in a way that shows his glory in a very dark world. Come and study the Bible while engaging your artistic creativity! Teacher: Sam Mylin
The Cure (Room 201)
The Cure, a practical study on how to live a grace-filled life, will continue. God’s cures rarely come in the form we expect, but what if, indeed, God is not who we think He is…and neither are we? Have you ever unwittingly carried an old, dead perspective into your new life and felt you couldn’t measure up to a standard that you have created, convincing yourself it was God’s? Have you read His words through a grid of shame and felt yourself falling farther and farther behind? This book study can offer great hope for 2017. Open to all. Teacher: Jacqui Stoner
Lamplighters (Room 208): Back to the Future: The Book of Daniel, Part 2
Join us for a study of the prophecies of Daniel, chapters 7-12. Daniel was a man of character and courage. His prophecies are so accurate that critics say his writings must have been forged hundreds of years later than his lifetime because no man could predict the future that way. Daniel is man with a message for our day and an example for us to dare to follow. Teacher: John Prichard
Young at Heart (Room 207): Joshua
We will investigate the historical and practical teachings of Joshua, the sixth book of the Bible. This study will survey the major moments and events that make this book so practical to Christian Living. You are invited to join us for the winter course. Teacher: Al Reilly
College & Young Adults: Sooner Count the Stars (Room 208)
We will continue our study of the life of Abraham, drawing lessons of faith and encouragement from his incredible life. All college and 20-somethings are invited to join this fellowship. Lunch is provided. Teacher: Adam Swift
