Adult Bible Fellowships

ABFs During Coronavirus Shut Down

Adult Bible Fellowships are meeting online. Don't let social distancing keep you from experiencing Christian community. Fill out a Connection Card to get connected with one of these groups.


Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs) meet on Sunday mornings. Each ABF provides a great setting for digging into God's Word and for getting to know other believers from throughout Bloomington - Normal. The following is a list of our current ABFs. Please contact anyone of the leadership team members with your questions. If you have questions regarding ABFs in general, please contact Pastor Traig

ACTS 2:42 | 9:00 A.M.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." Acts 2:42. Some things never change, like the basic needs of people desiring to live a Christian life in a culture antagonistic toward Christian living whether it's Corinth and Ephesus or Bloomington - Normal. After 2000 years of church history, those basic needs are still Bible study, relationships of interdependence, and prayer. You'll find in ACTS 242 a group of people on the exciting adventure of creating that kind of ABF. You're invited to join the adventure. Meets in Room 171. Contact: Jon Scott

BUILDERS | 10:30 A.M.

We live and work in greater Bloomington - Normal and think that Scripture should affect the way we live, speak and act. Every week, we go to God's word for His perfect instruction for our lives. Also included every week are delicious refreshments and terrific times of prayer. Did we mention we have delicious refreshments? 40's and up.  Meets in Room 171. Contact: Jeff Fritzen


We're focused on what the Bible has to say about facing the challenges that come during the retirement years. You'll find a warm welcome, new friends and good Bible teaching. 60's and up.  Meets in Room 126. Contact: Wes Hill


Do you believe—really believe—that God's love can change you life—really transform who you are? We are committed to making our lives all that God intends them to be. We pursue the transforming love of God together by studying the Bible, praying for one another, fun activities, and caring for each other through the highs and lows of life. Please join us as we seek to build a fellowship that walks more closely with God.  Meets in Room 172. Contact: Jim Simmons


Not your typical ABF. Search the Scriptures is an in-depth Bible study requiring daily preparation throughout the week. Class time focuses on discussing the observations and the learning that have taken place through that week's daily study. Search the Scriptures is cross generation with some singles and young marrieds. Meets in Room 170. Contact: Lyle Risius

FELLOWSHIP 13 (Young Marrieds) | 9:00 A.M.

All the marriage "how to" books in the world will not make you the spouse that God wants you to be.  Deepening your relationship with God and becoming more like Christ is a journey of discipleship and a strong foundation for a joyful marriage.  Our friendships and study of the Bible will influence not only your marriage but every area of your life.  Meets in Room 139. Contact:  Steve Mann and Ruston Edelman.


This lively and relevant ABF is designed to present the life-changing truths of God’s word and support one another in prayer and genuine care. You will find an accepting, friendly, busy, loving group of people. All college students and young career singles are welcome.  First we have lunch together! Meets in Room 172.
