New LifeGroup getting underway for fall…

Unshakable Hope examines twelve of God’s encouraging promises and how they equip you to:

  • Overcome challenging circumstances
  • Live through sadness and renew hope
  • Experience lasting security
  • Make wise decisions

What is your life built on—the circumstances of life or the promises of God? The answer to that question changes everything. For every problem in life, God has given you a promise. Join us as we take a closer look at Scripture’s unbreakable promises and discover how to live with an unshakable hope!

Come and be a part of this life-changing small group study led by Bill Lalla, to be held Mondays, September 10-November 26 at either 10:30 am or 7 pm!
