Hermeneutics [Equip Course]

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. -2 Tim. 2:15

As we go through the Word series in the Fall of 2017, we also desire to equip our entire church in the process of how to study the Bible.  That’s why Pastor Travis will be teaching a Hermeneutics Course for the duration of the entire series. On Sunday nights at 6PM, we will gather in the Fellowship Hall and learn how to “rightly handle the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15).

This course is a part of our Equip partnership with Southeastern Seminary.  All ages are welcome to come to this course and all levels of biblical exposure will feel welcomed.


  • If you are a degree-seeking participant through Southeastern Seminary or dual-enrollment through the College at Southeastern, you will need to register through the school and then inform them of taking the course at the Rocky Creek extension.  You can download the Degree Syllabus here on Wednesday, Aug. 16th.
  • If you are a knowledge-seeking auditor who wants the information but is not needing a degree, you just need to show up.  While we will have outlines each week, if you desire to do extra reading, you can download the Audit Syllabus here on Wednesday, Aug. 16th.
