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!

Summer Bible Study on Wednesday mornings

This summer, join the Bible Study on First Thessalonians, a five-week series on Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, led by Wallace W. Bubar, begins Wednesday, June 6, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., in the Fireside Room at Central Presbyterian Church.

Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians is probably the first book to be written in the New Testament, and opens a window to reveal what the early Christian movement was like at the very beginning. The letter is full of life, bubbling with energy, with questions, problems, excitement, danger, and above all, a sense of the presence and power of the living God, who has changed the world through Jesus and is now at work in a new way by his Spirit. Those same qualities can touch us as well as we delve more deeply into the book.
