ABS, June 2020

Virtual Adult Bible School took place June 8-11, 2020. We were very excited to continue the tradition even during this time of COVID-19 awareness and social distancing.

The theme for 2020's Adult Bible School was “Gospel Basics in Complicated Times.” We explored the relevancy and power of the Gospel for enabling lives of discipleship even in the midst of complicated times. We learned what’s wrong with the world, what the Bible has to say, and how to practically apply the Good News to ourselves.

Our speaker was Benjamin Crelin, Jim and Cathy’s younger son.
