Adult Bible Study (ABS) Classes are a time for adults at NHBC to dig into God's Word, and have small-group discussions about how it applies to everyday life. These classes give plenty of opportunity for getting to know one another, asking questions, and just learning how to live life God's way. Currently, we have two elective classes. Books for the classes are available for $12 each. Join us every Sunday at 9:30 AM.
The Hole in our Holiness:
Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness
Teacher: Paul Kinghorn
Location: Music Room
The Hole in our Holiness is that we don't seem to care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don't understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you've been trying really hard to be holy and it's just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don't seem all that concerned about it.
This is a class for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a class about God's power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of transformation.

The Gospel & Personal Evangelism:
Understanding and Telling the Truth of the Gospel in the Context of Real Life
Teacher: Jim Withers
Location: East Fellowship Room
The gospel should not just be something we add into our conversations -- it should be the foundation for our conversations about real life. A gospel worldview affects everything we speak about with friends and family, neighbors and coworkers. This class will focus on connecting those everyday conversations to their gospel roots, and articulating the good news to those the Lord brings into our lives. We will talk about the basic concepts of the gospel message, and key Biblical passages to support them.
This class is designed to help prepare those who are serious about sharing the gospel.
The book for this class is "recommended reading," but is not required for participation.
