On Sunday mornings at Christ Church Knoxville, we offer semesterly courses (you may also hear it as Sunday School classes) for all ages before our worship service. At 9:15am grab some coffee so you can be in your classroom at 9:30am. These courses are a time of digging deeper into God’s Word as it relates to particular topics. We normally offer two semesters (Spring and Fall) with sets of three classes each semester. We break into our classes before coming back for worship together at 10:30am. Sometimes we also offer a corporate Course in the off semesters (Summer and Winter) so be sure to check the Calendar Page for the most up to date information on schedules.
For the Fall semester of 2019 (starting September 8th) we are offering two different classes for adults to choose from. Please see the descriptions below for each class and then submit using the form for which class you would like to sign up for.
Please note: There will not be 1st through 5th-grade classes this semester so parents need to plan for their kids to join them in Courses during this time.
Apologetics in a Post-Truth World: Mark Baker
Previous generations taught apologetics in order to equip people to "defend" their faith against the truth claims of other religions. There are still times when we need to provide reasons for our faith. But most of us don't find ourselves debating the stereotypical "atheist professor" in the middle of a religion class. Most of us want to engage our non-believing friends with the gospel in a way that captivates both their minds and their hearts. Therefore this course seeks to equip the church in engaging in apologetics in a post-truth world in order that many will come to know Jesus as the embodiment of the way, the truth, and the life.
Gospel-centered Parenting: Brent Blake
Ephesians 4:11-12 speaks about the responsibility of the church in equipping the saints for the work of ministry. Can you think of a more important ministry you have than the discipleship of your family Jonathan Edwards put it like this, “Every Christian family ought to be as it were a little church, consecrated to Christ, and wholly influenced and governed by his rules. And family education and order are some of the chief means of grace.” That is what we are longing for at Christ Church Knoxville. As we begin this parenting course together may God create as it were many little churches in our body. May he exceed our expectations.
For the sake of administration, we do ask that each individual planning on participating in a course sign up below:
