Bible Study

Bible study is central to a life of faith.

Currently, we have three 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 the other two meet weekly on Wednesdays, one at 10:00 a.m. and the other at 6:00 p.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!

Sunday Adult Education Class

Sundays mornings, 9:00–10:00 a.m., via Zoom meetings.
This class is facilitated by Central’s Parish Associate Rev. Annika Lister Stroope.

Exodus: Living Faithfully in the In-Between

Mondays & Wednesday mornings,  10:00–10:30 a.m. via Zoom Meetings.

Pastor Wallace Bubar leads a Bible study two days a week.  The book of Exodus was written for a people on the move, in between one place and another. We’ll explore what it might have to say to us in our day and time, with its hope of deliverance and a God who accompanies his people along the way.

What We Believe

Wednesday evenings, 6:00–7:00 p.m. via Zoom Meetings. Click image at right for weekly schedule.

Join us for a new Bible class on Wednesday evenings, January 8 through May 20, 2020, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. The class is facilitated by Central’s Seminary Intern Sheryl Puderbaugh.

Do you have questions about your faith? Perhaps you have doubts or even disagree with what you think Christians believe? This new Wednesday class, titled What We Believe, will explore the foundational beliefs of our faith.



Enlivening Your Prayer Life

Thursday evenings, 7:00–8:00 p.m. via Zoom Meetings.

Join us for a new study group on Thursday evenings, April 2 through May 21, 2020, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. The class is facilitated by Central’s Seminary Intern Sheryl Puderbaugh.

We hope you will join us for an opportunity to look at prayer suggestions offered in a book entitled, Kneeling With the Giants. We will be praying for the needs of our church, families, community and world, but also learn new styles and ways of prayer. We also will be exploring how the “giants” of our faith have prayed, hoping to learn from them how we can deepen and develop our life of prayer.
