SUNDAY SCHOOL

Sunday School at Knollwood Baptist Church provides a comprehensive approach for all ages for Bible study and faith development. Our program encourages spiritual growth, offers a caring community, fosters the development of a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and empowers learners to be servants to one another in the world through faithful living.

Please accept our invitation to join in the fellowship and community of the Sunday School class of your choice.  Join with others in the journey to grow in knowledge and understanding of our Christian faith and in a Christian lifestyle.

Join with us as we strive to be faithful to the journey in answer to God's call through Christ.
A Sunday School greeter is available each Sunday morning in the vestibule of Building B
to assist you in visiting any of our classes.  


Preschool and Kindergarten


1st Floor, Bldg. B
Infants through five-year-olds are provided a nurturing and caring environment during the Sunday School time and in extended session at worship time. Activities are designed to develop a positive concept of self and church through a knowledge of God's world and God's people surrounding the preschooler.  A creative learning environment is provided through Bible stories, music and craft activities.

Elementary
Grades 1-5


2nd Floor, Bldg. B
Children in the elementary division gain greater experience in applying the teachings of the Bible to their own lives.  Activities are designed to help these children develop an understanding of the Christian faith as expressed in Bible stories, in the life and work of the church and in personal service.


Youth
Jr. High & High School

Noffsinger Youth Building (Bldg. C)
Dynamic Biblical teaching and the occasional mission adventure challenge youth to grow in their relationship with God. More than any time during the week's youth program Sunday school is a focused time of Bible study. In 2007-2008 the youth surveyed the Old and New Testaments. In 2008-09, we will follow the lectionary scriptures (the ones we use in Sunday morning worship) and see what discuss what it means to live like Christ. So come prepared with Bible in hand to learn about what God can do in you and this world.


Adult Division
updated October 2016

 
The adult small group Sunday morning offerings make up a rich and diverse tapestry. There is a place for everyone in these Bible study and Christian education groups. The common vision is to meet the spiritual needs and challenges of the changing years of adult life.

 
Agape Class
A178-179 Ted Philpott

This larger class of mostly “children-have-left-home” adults offers vigorous examination and discussion of scripture texts and their present relevance and challenge. Our curriculum explores biblical themes, at times drawing from the rhythms of the lectionary and the seasons. Social gatherings in members’ homes extend our fun and fellowship.

 

The Barnabas Group
B221 Matt & Alyson Jamison and other leaders from the group

This diverse group of couples and singles spans two or three decades from younger adults forward. Our seminar format encourages dialogue and sharing; lessons range from Bible studies to book studies, always asking questions about the complexities of faith and life.

  

Faith in Action Class
B224   Peggy Haymes, Mark Hix, and other class leaders

This large group of diverse ages values questions, discussion, active service projects, and mutual care and support. Our faith formation discussions often follow the common lectionary to see how the biblical texts matter to us and our world.

 

Faith Journeys

NYB Upstairs David & Melanie Wilkinson

This new group of mostly young adults offers focused Bible study, active discussion, and times for reflective prayer. Still small in numbers and shaping its identity, the class warmly welcomes newcomers.


Faith Matters Class
B231  Katharine Martin and other class leaders

This group values lively discussion, mutual support, acceptance of diverse people, and involvement in social ministries. With varied ages but tilting toward younger adults, we begin with particular prayer practices, then explore questions of faith, biblical interpretation, and cultural relevance.


From Here to There
B224  Jim Hylton, Chuck Hinson, Megan Maguire

This discussion-oriented group applies scripture to life, with a particular focus on mutual support for parents and mentors of children and youth. We often choose book studies and explore current parenting challenges and broader life situations.


 Kindred Spirits
A164  Facilitators:  Bill Davis, Bill Hearn, Suzanne Newsome and other class leaders

This group seeks community through study, service, and shared life experiences. We range in age from mid-40’s to mid-60’s, with many empty nesters who have not yet retired. We often choose multi-week topical studies and frequently tackle shared service projects.

 

Mary Martha Class
A175  Susan Borwick

The service-minded Mary-Martha class consists of women “of a certain age” who eagerly study the Bible in light of God’s guidance and our life experiences, continuously seeking to live out God’s love. This vibrant group of women is one of Knollwood’s longest standing Sunday School classes.

 

Pilgrimage Class
A161  Chip Mims

With a lively mix of retired and not-yet-retired members (but open to all adults), this large class enjoys vigorous teaching and serious study of biblical texts, often following the lectionary.  The teacher brings biblical teaching into the challenging arena of 21st century living.


Roddick-Discovery Class
A166 Maurice Briggs, T. M. Craven, Fred Clifford (president), John Harrisonand Rodney Stilwell

This class of mature, retired adults has stretched in the past year to bring together the former Discovery class with the Roddick group. The teachers alternate leading the study of biblical literature and other topics as the class also reflects on the spiritual gifts and challenges of our life stage.

 

Searchers
A182  Ted Dougherty

This intergenerational class uses scripture, theology, and current issues as starting places for lively discussion. We often use DVD series (topics have ranged from world religions to the Bible to the lives of great Christians) to stimulate conversation and application to our contemporary lives as Christians.
