Spring 2013 Sunday School Classes
Young Adult Community
Calling all college students, young adults, graduate students, young professionals, yuppies, or however you identify yourself! The Young Adults at Blacknall gather each Sunday for fellowship, prayer, and to study the Bible – no preparation or prior experience required. This Spring, we are working through the book of Luke. We share meals and life outside of Sunday mornings together, as well.
Location: Parlor | Contact: Griff Gatewood or Goodie Bell
Introduction to the Old and New Testaments: Have you ever wanted to know the Bible better? If so, we’d love to have you join this class where each week we look at a different book of Scripture and learn what it says and why it matters. This class is not geared toward biblical scholars, but toward those who want a solid introduction to what Scripture says.
Location: Fellowship Hall | Contact: Josh Leim
Christians in Action (CIA)
James: The CIA class uses a big circle discussion format, discussing a variety of topics that affect our Christian discipleship. Currently, we are studying the book of James. During this past year, we have also explored politics & Christianity, the Meaning of Marriage, and the Christian Walk, a series in which guest speakers shared experiences that challenged their faith. We are newcomer-friendly and we start at 9:45 with snacks and informal socialization, and start the formal discussion at 10:00. We have social get-togethers occasionally throughout the year as well. Please join us!

Galatians, Ephesians, and Colossians: The Crossroads class is a participatory discussion-based Bible study class. It aims at developing understanding of Scripture through inquiry and understanding of text in its cultural context. Come join us for an adventure of learning where questions are encouraged and participation for understanding is valued.

Faith Seeking Understanding
Civil Religion: We will examine the dangers of idolizing the modern nation-state and attributing redemptive roles to the state that belong only to Jesus Christ.
Location: Room 401 | Contact: Russ Congleton
Growing in Grace
Living in Sync Using Kingdom Principles in 2013: We will be exploring the message of the kindgom of God as found in the Old and New Testaments. The class, which will include biblical exposition, skits, and discussion will have the objective of spiritual formation and transformation as a community of believers. Click here for more details.
Location: Upper Room | Contact: Paul Immanuel
The Book of Acts: We hold an ongoing discussion of topics regarding life together & the practical implications of Scripture in Christian community and culture. Currently, we are reading through the book of Acts and discussing how the story of God and His people during the early days of the church would affect our communal life here and now at Blacknall in Durham.

Biblical Book Study: This class uses prayer, lecture, and discussion to learn to follow Christ and live out biblical teaching. We are a combination of young adults and others of varying ages and life stages. In January we learned about how class members live out their faith within their paid work. In February, we started a new study led by Mandy Rodgers-Gates and Jonathan Lett. We would love for you to join us!
