Foundations is Cokesbury’s Next Step for adults to help explore what and why we believe. You will find resources to complete the Foundations curriculum on this page. 

To get the most out of this experience, we invite you to register for our Foundations email list, which will share new videos and content as they are released throughout the year. If you are interested in joining an in-person Foundations group, please email Jill
