Adult Bible Fellowship


Our Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs) encourage growth in the knowledge and understanding of God's word together. These groups meet on Highland's campus during the three Gathering times for an in-depth study of Scripture. 

Are you looking to join a group at Highland? ABFs meet in various rooms on campus, while following social distancing protocols and measures. There is also the option to connect remotely to an ABF. 

You can find a list of ABFs and contact a leader directly here
