Combined Sunday School on Transgenderism – April 7, 14, & 21

Transgenderism

Teachers: Kevin DeYoung and professors from Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS)
Location: Sanctuary

Western culture is currently undergoing deep transformation in how people view sexuality and personal identity. Rather than seeing sexuality as a gift to be received from one’s Creator, it is increasingly understood as determined by the individual—even down to remaking bodies to align with a sense of sexual identity. This cultural change has brought unprecedented challenges to the Church as she seeks to bear witness to God’s Word on what it means to be human, and as she seeks to minister in a deeply confused culture.

This all-church mini-series taught by our Senior Pastor and professors from Reformed Theological Seminary will equip Christians to understand what Scripture teaches on issues related to transgenderism, how we got to this cultural moment, and how Christians might wisely and compassionately minister to others on this issue. Adults and youth are welcome.

Classes Beginning April 28, 2024

The Character of Christ: The Fruit of the Spirit in the Life of our Savior

Teacher: Bruce Creswell
Location: Worship Center Rooms 201 and 211

The Apostle Paul uses the singular “fruit,” not “fruits,” to describe the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. “Think of the fruit of the Spirit not as nine separate jewels, but rather as nine separate facets or sides on one shimmering diamond.” What do they look like when lived out in our lives? As we study the fruit of the Spirit in the life of Christ, we see how they are they are manifested in us by our union in Him. We will use Jonathan Cruse’s book, The Character of Christ, as our study guide.

Biographical Insights into Influential Christians

Teacher: Paul Engle
Location: Community Life Center rooms 1 & 2

British essayist Thomas Carlyle once asserted: “The history of the world is but the Biography of great men.” The actions of a few great men and women have shaped not only history, but also today’s Christian community. In this class we’ll share the story of four significant Christian leaders: John Bunyan, William Tyndale, George Whitfield, and Eric Liddell. This is but a small sampling of the myriads who have been used by God to have a lasting impact on the church. Why study history? G.K. Chesterton believed that “The disadvantage of men not knowing the past is that they do not know the present. History is a hill or high point of vantage, from which lone men see the town in which they live or the age in which they are living.” Join us in this class as we look out from several hills of past history to gain a clearer knowledge of our present age. The class will be illustrated by hundreds of sides and will provide weekly handouts.

A Theological Reflection on Beauty

Teacher: Nathan George
Location: Community Life Center rooms 3 & 4

Beauty is often considered to be purely subjective—in “the eye of the beholder.” It may come as a surprise that Scripture is not indifferent to beauty, and so our faith shouldn’t be either. This class will survey a history of thought on the subject of beauty in the created order, explore how beauty interacts with truth, and attempt to apply a theology of beauty in life and liturgy.

The Christ Covenant Story – How Did We Get Here?

Teachers: Rob Veerman and Guests
Location: Community Life Center room 5

Christ Covenant is a thriving local church with global impact. But it hasn’t always been that way. How did we get here? In this class we will see God’s providence through a survey of the forty-year history of Christ Covenant and the convergence of people, places and events leading up to its founding. Over the course of four sessions, we will look at the history of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, our Presbyterian roots, the PCA, a young church planter and the ministers that followed.

Reading the Bible like a Christian (and Unlike Everything Else)

Teachers: Will Ross
Location: Community Life Center room 6

This class is a brief study of how the Bible is unlike any other book, and how Christians ought to read it unlike anyone else does. Taking our cue from Scripture itself and the history of the Church, we will consider and practice three sensibilities for reading the Bible as those who Jesus says are taught by God: a concern for Scripture’s very words, its theological and Christological unity, and its importance for the church.

The Biggest Story

Teachers: Ginny Joyce, Aaron Mayes, Amy Van Dusen & Tiphany Speck
Location: Worship Center Room 107

The King’s Community is a class designed for those with special learning needs or disabilities, but open to any who want to get to know and learn together with this wonderful community in our church. In addition to singing, serving and sharing concerns and celebrations in prayer with one another, team teachers use an engaging curriculum with an interactive approach to facilitate discipleship and community connection. This semester we will be working through stories from The Biggest Story Bible Storybook by our pastor, Kevin DeYoung, and learning to see the biggest story that runs through them all and points us over and over again to Jesus.

Youth Sunday School (Middle & High School)

Teachers: CCYM Staff
Location: Meets in the Youth Center (Lower Community Life Center)

When you read the New Testament you will occasionally see Jesus or the biblical authors praying the words of the Old Testament back to God. While it may seem weird to “pray God’s Word back to him,” this can actually be a great way to structure your private prayers. At the same time, we understand that you don’t always know where to start and how to go about it, much less what you should focus on and how you should phrase things. For our short Sunday School series, we will look at some encouraging passages in the Bible, specifically with the goal of learning about how we can utilize a text of Scripture to fuel and guide our prayers. We would love for you to join us in our normal rhythm of having a short lesson accompanied by small group Bible study and prayer time!
