Adult Bible Studies
Our desire for the people of Colonial is…
“that we might present every man complete in Christ” (Colossians 1:28).
One of the ways we accomplish this goal is through the ABS classes offered on Sunday mornings from 11:00am - 12:00pm. These classes seek not only to teach truth about God, but also to provide a venue for personal application and genuine interaction with other believers. If you are not a part of one of these classes we encourage you to find a class to connect with and allow the Body of Christ to work in your life.
