Sunday School Class List

…exploring who we are at Blacknall?

The Cross at Iredell and Perry course will be an exploration of who we are at Blacknall. The class will parallel the sermon series in worship and will be an open discussion about what makes Blacknall an “outpost of the Kingdom of God,” stories of how Jesus has been faithful to this congregation, where the Holy Spirit is at work in our congregation, and the theological DNA of our church. Located in the Fellowship Hall (adjacent to Sanctuary). Contact: Matt Bridges.

…seeking God in the midst of college life?

College-age folks: Please join us for food, fellowship, Scripture, and prayer.  This Fall, we are studying the books of 1 & 2 Samuel, looking at the shape of God’s covenant faithfulness and how we, as God’s people today, might grow through these stories of power, personality, and providence. Located in Room 403. Contact: Beth Hilliard.

…Christ and community?

Come to the Community Class to discuss life together and the practical implications of scripture in Christian community and culture. We do this by exploring scripture and Christian commentary that is chosen to compliment the sermon series. The class format includes readings to provoke discussion and encourage the sharing of personal experiences and ideas. Located in Room 401 (4th floor). Contact: Rudy Renfer and Don Grigg.

…reading the New Testament in Greek?

Join the Gospels in Greek Class! We read a passage in Greek a few sentences at a time, exploring the meaning using activities and questions while speaking mostly in Greek. The last 15 minutes are for interpreting and applying what we read (in English). Beginners are welcome – we’ll get you through it. Located in Room 211 (David Dunderdale’s Office). Contact: Jonathan Robie.

…a biblical approach to hospitality?

The Crossroads Class will be meeting together for Bible study, mutual encouragement, and prayer.   Though the group will determine the focus of conversation, the class this fall will focus in part on what Scripture says about hospitality, its manifestations, and its benefits. Located in Room 404 (4th Floor). Contact: Bisharah Libbus.

…exploring why American Christians sometimes think more like Americans than like Christians?

The Faith Seeking Understanding class will spend the Fall exploring and seeking to understand the sources of confusion that arise with bewildering regularity in public discourse in the United States between Christianity and Americanism.   Christian historian Mark Noll has carefully blazed a trail through the perplexing set of developments from the 1730’s to the end of the Civil War in 1865 that caused Christians to look to Enlightenment political language rather than traditional Christian creeds in defining the faith with lasting ramifications for Christians in the 21st century. Located in Room 402 (4th Floor) Contact: Russ Congleton.

…the Kingdom of God according to Luke?

The Growing in Grace class is focusing on a study on the Kingdom of God, looking at what Jesus preached as recorded by Luke and how the early church interpreted His words and put it into action. Located in Room 405 (Upper Room, 4th floor). Contact: Paul Immanuel.
