The Agape Sunday School Class welcomes you to join us for a 15-week study beginning on Sunday, October 7, room 212 (on the breeze way) at 9:45 between the two traditions worship services.  The lesson book and study guide set are available on Sunday, September 30 or any Sunday thereafter for $20 from Sharon Wykle, leader. 

“In Unshakable Hope, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado offers encouraging, practical guidance for overcoming difficult circumstances and gaining inner peace, building resolve, and walking into a better future.  Unshakable Hope examines twelve of God’s promises that Max has turned to over the years to encourage himself and others. Each chapter explores one significant promise and reveals how it will equip you to overcome challenging circumstances, experience lasting security, and make wise decisions. What are you anchored to—the circumstances of life or the promises of God? For every problem in life, God has given you a promise. Join Max as he takes a closer look at Scripture’s unbreakable promises and shows you how to live with an unshakable hope.”
