On-going Church School Classes

Greatest Generation Bible Study
(W400)
This lecture style class uses the PC(USA) Present Word curriculum. Contact Rachel Turner 

Christian Fellowship
(C200)
In January we cover the period of the apostles and the early persecution, the imperial church, the church in the middle ages, and the beginnings of the Reformation. Next, we turn to John Calvin, the father of the Reformed Faith--his teachings on the character of God and Jesus Christ, the church and the human condition, and the church as a part of culture and the social order. By March, we conclude the study of church history with advances since the Reformation--the counter-Reformation, orthodoxy and rationalism, eighteenth and nineteenth century developments, and the church today. We are primarily a lecture based class, with plenty of fellowship and food to augment our time together. Contact Carol Vassey

Faith Foundations
(K301) Living the Questions2 is an open-minded alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what's next for Christianity. Featuring thirty acclaimed scholars, theologians and other experts, LtQ2 in three units: "Invitation to Journey," "Reclaiming the World" and "Call to Covenant." We create comfortable space for all to share new ideas and wrestle with questions. Contact Jenny Washburn

Knox
(K300)
The Knox Class, an intergenerational group with members of all ages and stages of life, welcomes new members to join us this fall for a book study of “God is Not One.” Author Stephen Prothero argues that all religions are not just different paths to the same God. Religions differ in the distinct human problem that each seeks to solve; and we should understand those differences if we are to have a more complete comprehension of the modern world:  Islam, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Yoruba, Judaism, Daoism, and Atheism. Join the discussion. We love to talk and learn from each other. Contact:
Harriet Worley 

New Covenant
(K200)
Need some Revelation in your life?  The New Covenant Class will begin the study of the book of Revelation, December 8, at 9:30. We meet in room 200 of the Knox Building and welcome your presence. Please come and give our class a try. Contact
Justus Everett  with "New Covenant" in the Subject line.

Theological Forum
(K302)
Theological Forum reads and discusses books and articles on theology and ethics, using periodicals such as Theology Today, Interpretation, The Christian Century, Windows and Insight from Austin Seminary.

TNT (Thirties and Thereafter)
(K201)
In 2014 we begin a study of Your Spiritual IQ - by John Savage.

Contact Colleen Camaione-Edmonston or Sally Nunnally 

Young Adults
