Foundations Adult Bible Study

A College-Level Study for A Lifetime of Bible Study Skills

Foundations meets each Sunday morning at 9 am in room 146. All adults, regardless of age or background, are welcome to join the class at any time throughout the year. The class follows a multi-year study format, but prior notes are available for newcomers and there are natural organization breaks that ease joining at any time.

The teaching goal of the class is to encourage each member to grow in the spirit and skill described of the Bereans whom were commended in the New Testament on their eager and personal examination of the Scriptures. The social goal of the class is the mutual encouragement of like-minded Christian friends.

Contacting Class Leaders

The class is led by Jim Anderson, Jim.Anderson@cedarmillcc.com, and Clayton Greer, clayton@greers.us, is the primary teacher. Both Jim and Clayton can be contacted for additional information about the class.

Current Study

The current study is a detailed examination of end times and last things:

  • Top down extensive theological presentation of dispensational premillennialism.
  • Top down extensive presentation of competing views to stretch and mature our position.
  • A study of hermeneutics in general and prophetic material in specific.
  • A bottom up study of end-times and last things prophetic Scriptures stretching from Genesis and culminating in Revelation that draw upon our hermeneutical skills.

The current study will continue through mid 2017.

Outlines and partial notes are distributed at the start of each class. Members can choose to fill in the provided outline to assist in following the planned material. Prior notes are available for newcomers to come up to speed.
