ADULT MINISTRIES

Adult Bible Fellowships

What is an ABF?
An ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship) is a medium sized group (15-70 people) that meets during our Sunday morning worship services. ABF’s are one of your best opportunities for connecting here at Lakes Free and for building relationships with people of a similar life stage.

How do I get involved?
ABF’s are offered during both hours on Sunday mornings. Please note the schedule below and find the group that fits you best. ABF groups are organized by life stage, but we invite you to join the group that feels most comfortable to you, regardless of age or marital status.

Please come and visit. We will be happy to welcome you! Come early for coffee, snacks and fellowship!

What happens at an ABF meeting?

  • Fellowship: An ABF cultivates a warm, friendly atmosphere to meet people and provides a setting for relationships, spiritual growth, and caregiving.
  • Teaching: Bible and topical studies are covered by a team of great teachers.
  • Prayer: ABF’s provide time for corporate prayer for your needs and for our congregation.
  • Team Led: Each ABF is led by a committed, caring ministry team made up from peers within your group.

Support Groups

GriefShare

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

Journey Group

Come be a part of a small group that meets weekly for 9 sessions finding encouragement and gaining tools for moving beyond the effects of past traumatic events or abuse. A Journey Group is led by trained facilitators. This uniquely non-judgmental group environment is a safe place where participants can experience core biblical concepts as they explore ways to journey toward restoring healthy relationships and new life.

Hope Ministries

Hope Ministries is excited to announce a support group for adoptive and foster care families, or families who are contemplating adoption or foster care.

We will meet the first Sunday of each month from 6-8pm in Room 219. We will have a time for connecting with other adoptive and foster care families, as well as group discussion.
