Adult bible Fellowship (ABF)

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.

Beginning June 24th, Cornerstone-Eldridge will launch its summer ABF series, offering something for everyone with three diverse options. Please take a moment to read through the information below to determine which course piques your interest the most.

Note – Please note that our Summer ABFs are offered online, via Zoom, on Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 – 6:45p. In addition to these ABFs, we will continue to offer in-person Bible study at the church on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 – 7:15, followed by our prayer meeting from 7:15 – 8:00.

1. Money Made Simple   Course Instructor: Pat Reid

Dates: June 24th - Aug 19th   Time: 6:00-6:45p

Course Description: Master your money, do not let money become a master over you. Too many people focus on Return on Investment, we will discuss Return on Life! We will discuss the basics of finances and put a personalized plan together for you. You will have access to on-line planning software to help you keep track of your plan. Patrick will help guide you through this process.

This will be a great course for high school, college, and young adults that have not been taught the basics of money. It will also be valuable to pre-retirees planning for the transition into retirement.

2. Getting Free from the Fears and Frustration that Divide Us   Course Instructors: Shane Knoche and John Hawley

Dates: June 24th - Aug 19th   Time: 6:00-6:45p

Course Description: LET’S ADMIT IT. When it comes to the topic of race, we feel conflicted. We’re angry, offended, sad, hopeless, and confused. For so many people, the racial divide is an argument, a political position, a debate. However, keeping our distance is not working. It’s not an option anymore. This is about you and me. It’s about our neighbors, our children, and our world. We will be utilizing the book Under OUR Skin by Ben Watson. This book offers a look at both sides of the race debate and appeals to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing. It’s a bold new path for us to follow as we come together to talk about truths, myths, and realities of racial conflict.

3. New Testament Study – Ephesians Course Instructor: Pastor Steffan

Dates: June 24th - Aug 19th   Time: 6:00-6:45p

Course Description: The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—having been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world.
