The Rossmoor Bible Study began March 31, 1977. The guiding force in developing the Bible Study was Dr. Bob Stevens who was the first teacher, and since then there have been numerous other teachers who have shared their unique gifts and knowledge in the teaching of the Scriptures. Those who have attended the meetings through the years come from diverse denominational, ethnic, cultural, and geographical backgrounds. The Bible topics are directly selected from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.

Students meet in discussion groups of their choice, followed by the main message in which our teacher elaborates on the discussion questions, building upon, and enriching the topic under consideration.

Singing many of the traditional hymns of the Christian faith is another prominent feature of the group, followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship.

We invite all to come and participate.


The Dollar Clubhouse at Rossmoor in Walnut Creek is the former home of the family of R. Stanley Dollar, a stately mansion with a homey feeling.

Rossmoor founder, Ross Cortese, purchased the Rossmoor, Walnut Creek, property from the Dollar family of the Dollar Steamship Lines in early 1960. The Dollar family developed the 2,200-acre showplace estate, where they raised horses and prize purebred Hereford cattle. The Dollar family summer home is still part of Rossmoor and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
