Wednesday, September 28


6:30 PM - 8:15 PM

Alpha is an opportunity to explore faith and the big questions of life in a relaxed, non-threatening environment. Alpha is for everyone. Whether you grew up a Christian or have never set foot in a church building, whether you are eighteen or eighty, whether you raise kids or raise cattle. Alpha starts every week with a meal and relaxed conversation. Next, a talk is given exploring various aspects of the Christian faith. Finally, in table groups, guests can ask any question and discuss opinions freely with others. There is no cost, but registration is appreciated as a meal is provided.

Two Trails Book Launch

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Two Trails: A Hiker's Story of Survival and His Mother's Story of Hope is a book that was written by Karen Ziebarth after her son, Eric DeSplinter, was missing in the San Bernadino Mountains in April 2019. The book launch is set for September 29 at New Hope Church in Adel, Iowa. There will be a short introductory video recapping Eric's rescue, followed by author remarks until 7:35. At that time Eric will join via video conference from California to answer audience questions. The event will close with a short video to thank and honor all search and rescue teams involved. Books are available and will be signed at the event. We look forward to greeting and thanking the many people who prayed Eric home.

The Art of Self-Compassion Workshop (Single Parent Provision)

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Being kind to yourself, especially during difficult times, can be one of the best gifts you give to yourself and your children. When we're stressed, we can disconnect from our healthy selves and default to unhelpful stress patterns that can often be avoided through personal accountability and an abundance of grace...the art of self-compassion.

APDA Iowa 2022 Optimism Walk

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Register now and be part of this special day as we raise much-needed funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease.* Online registration is strongly encouraged * What is an Optimism Walk? Each APDA Optimism Walk is an important and fun-filled fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk that offers family-friendly activities, music, vendor tables, and so much more! The Iowa Optimism Walk is part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to step up and help put an end to Parkinson's disease. (Participants can walk as much or as little as they choose.) Sign-up yourself as an individual, create a team for your family and friends to join, or join an existing team. Together we will help Iowa families living with Parkinson's disease. Why Walk? Because every nine minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The more funds we raise, the more people we can help right in our local communities. Raise $100, $500, and $1,000+ and qualify for great prizes* like the official Optimism Walk t-shirt! Event Details: Fundraising is highly encouraged. Our Fundraising Guide (above) will help make fundraising easy to do! The walk route is wheelchair accessible around the stadium. Rain or shine! Download an Optimism Walk Flyer to share with friends and coworkers! Dogs are NOT permitted. (Service animals only, please). Your safety is our priority!

Creating community for those in blended families by offering encouragement, friendship and support. We get it - stepfamilies are complicated! Whether you are single, dating, engaged or remarried with young or grown-up kids - this community is for you. Our group is an informal gathering of people who understand the complexities of blending two families together. This group offers a fun place to connect and discuss topics related to remarriage, step-parenting, co-parenting and the unique challenges of blended families. The fall months are crazy for everyone so we will be meeting for just 6 weeks. We have partnered with Marriage365 to offer some great content on stepfamily specific challenges plus other topics such as finances, parenting, communication... issues every relationship encounters. As usual, we'll watch a short video to tee-up discussion and then enjoy some casual time together with snacks and good conversation. The group starts meeting on Sunday, September 18 from 4:00 - 5:30 PM. Future meeting dates: October 2, 9, 16, 30 and November 6. We are working on securing childcare. If you are interested in joining the group but need childcare, please call or text us at (515) 229-9928 or email us at thestepfamilygroup@gmail.com.

4:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Perspectives is a fifteen-week course designed around four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose. The goal of the class is to give students a clearer understanding of God’s mission to bring the Gospel to all nations, and to provide students with resources to take their next step in this mission, whether to go overseas themselves or get involved in other ways within their local church. You can find more information at www.perspectives.org.
