Adult Sunday Education

Central Presbyterian Church strives to nurture and develop disciples of all ages.

For adults we offer educational opportunities on Sundays during the education hour, on Wednesdays during our LOGOS program and regularly on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. During the Sunday 9:00 a.m. education hour we strive to offer opportunities to learn and grow in faith, experience religion from a different faith perspective and discover ways to promote social justice. We also offer programming specific to parents as they journey through raising their children in a complicated and confused world. We also will have a special Wednesday Bible study this summer on the Book of Job.

Sunday adult series on ‘Radical Hospitality’

Radical hospitality can be defined as affecting fundamentals in a friendly generous reception of guests, visitors or strangers. Part of radical hospitality is joining in justice and support of those who have escaped violence in their countries of origin and arrive in the U.S. with hope for a better future for themselves and their families.

In a 3-week study, adults at Central will have the opportunity to explore the vision of radical hospitality from both a professional and Biblical perspective.

On May 7 we will welcome Carly Ross, director of the local office of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI). USCRI is the largest refugee resettlement agency in Iowa and resettled the two families that Central sponsored earlier this winter. She will speak about the immigration issue which is now very much in the national spotlight. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.

Then on May 14 and 21 we will enjoy a 2-part series titled, Immigration: Today’s Civil Dilemma and Theological Challenge produced by the Mennonite Church U.S.A.

All three sessions will take place May 7, 14 and 21 at 9:00 a.m. in Room 201 on the upper level of the education wing.
