Bible Study

Currently, we have two Bible study groups to whet your appetite for God’s word and develop a stronger understanding of what God has in mind for His people. One meets on Sunday mornings during the education hour (9–10:00 a.m.) and another meets weekly on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. If you should have any questions about either, please contact the church office by email or at 515-279-3658. We look forward to meeting you!

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Wednesday mornings, 10:00 a.m., Room 112 (begins September 6, meets weekly throughout the  program year)

This group will use the Presbyterian Women’s produced Horizons Bible study: Cloud of Witnesses, the Community of Christ in Hebrews. Written by Melissa Bane Sevier, a teaching elder in the PC(USA) and Sung Hee Chang, a Union Presbyterian Seminary faculty member, this study approaches the book of Hebrews through a lens of peace, peacemaking and hope.

Participants will read and discuss stories about women who have been witnesses to faith highlighted in Hebrews chapters 1, 12 and 13. Starting Wednesday, September 6, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 112, classes are facilitated by our own Sue Heggen, 515-222-5626. This group usually meets from September to May – taking a break during the summer months.

In nine lessons, the author invites us to explore major themes found in Hebrews, relate these themes to other parts of our faith tradition, and tie them together with the overarching motif of community. Join the hundreds of thousands of thoughtful Christians who will be sharing this study together in the coming months.
