Seeking the Shalom of Our City
Brokenness, Hope, & Healing in the Durham Community
This Deep Common Journey class will celebrate what God is doing to bring hope and healing to broken places in the Durham community, particularly through ministry partners that Blacknall supports. Participants will examine the scriptural foundation of mercy ministry, pray regularly for divine intervention in our midst, and learn from those who are working to relieve suffering and/or share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Leader: David Dunderdale & Bo Harrison

Discipleship in a Confusing World
Practical encouragement from the book of Revelation
Join the Growing in Grace Class as we study the book of Revelation. The book was given by Jesus Christ to encourage followers in a world that is not too different from ours. The class will focus on encouraging us to live in a fallen world faithfully despite the difficult circumstances, grief and pain as we see that God is very much on the throne and is in control.

Greek for Beginners
A Living Language Approach
We will be learning New Testament Greek by working our way through the Gospel of John, using techniques that are more like an English as a Second Language classroom than a seminary. We learn how to ask and answer questions about the text in Greek, reading, listening, speaking, and writing to get an active understanding of the language.

Take a moment on Sunday mornings to “pause” with the Word and God’s people. The opportunities and transitions of post-high school years can be overwhelming. The College Class is an opportunity to reflect, listen to Scripture, and have fun.
Location: Parlor, Room 215
Young Adults Class
Let’s start conversations. The Young Adult Sunday School class is designed to start honest conversations about Scripture and our lives. If you’re looking to get to know people at Blacknall, this is a place for you. If you want to put a regular time of Bible Study into your schedule, this is a place for you. Young professionals, graduate students, working, or aimlessly wandering are all welcome.
Teacher: Goodie Bell
Location: Community Room, Room 201
This multi-generational class studies scripture following the sermon series. We use group discussion as a means to enrich our understanding of how we might practically live out the gospel, as well as provide Christian community for one another.
Facilitators: Don Grigg & Rudy Renfer
Location: Room 402
Faith Seeking Understanding
Our fall classes—and probably winter, too—will take up the question of whether “the Reformation” is over. Regardless of the way in which one answers that question, it begs a second question: what difference does it make for the church in the 21st century?
