- One on one discipleship relationships
- Marriage Mentoring
To successfully navigate this life, most would agree that help from others is invaluable. No one comes to Christ and grows as a disciple apart from the help and influences of others. We all have life experiences and gifts God has given us to share with and receive from others. In creating community (Body of Christ), God intends to grow us up to the measure of the fullness of Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit and the gifts He’s given to each of us in His Body. Different stages in life present unique challenges. Being and/or having a trusted mentor that is uniquely gifted to help in times of need is truly a blessing from God. In fall 2018, Cornerstone will be offering an ABF course called “Mentoring 101: How to Be a Blessing.” Discover the mentor in you and how to minister your gifts to others.

ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship)
Purpose: To develop mature Christ-like disciples through the study and application of God’s Word and to foster relationships among fellow believers.
Study, application, and relationships – these are three core components of Cornerstone’s Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF). As the ABF purpose statement reads, we strive “to develop mature Christ-like disciples through the study and application of God’s word and to foster relationships among fellow believers.” To better fulfill this purpose, the Discipleship Team met last spring and set a goal of expanding the number of ABF courses offered throughout the year to include courses that focus on the application of Christian living to our daily lives.
To accommodate this goal, the ABF calendar was organized into three separate terms that include summer, fall, and spring terms. The summer ABFs continues to be made up of “elective-style” options. The fall and spring ABFs still comprise of the traditional Old Testament and New Testament “Walk Through the Bible” classes and will meet throughout the fall and spring terms. In addition to the OT and NT options, however, the fall and spring terms have been created to allow for the inclusion of short-term courses (eight to sixteen weeks) that focus on unique topics specific to the application of daily Christian-living.
A couple of the short-term courses have been offered and have received positive feedback. To continue building on this goal in the coming year, it will be imperative that that we seek and identify the various needs and interests of the church body so that we may further develop courses that support Christian growth through study, application, and relationships of the ABFs.
The Discipleship Team thanks those who have graciously given their time to develop course material and lead the ABFs over the past year. Your work is greatly appreciated.
