Online Book Study: Unshakable Hope

Online Book Study: Unshakable Hope


 With so many disruptions in our daily lives, wouldn’t it be great to focus on the firm foundation of God’s promises in Scripture? This Fall at Hope Ankeny, every group and class in our congregation will come together to study “Unshakable Hope”, a new curriculum by best-seller Max Lucado. Each week of this study focuses on one of God’s eternal promises, and we are offering 9 times throughout the week, starting September 13th, for you to join a group and experience the security of a life with Jesus. Each of these groups will meet online for 12 weeks and you are encouraged to sign up individually or as a couple. There are also optional supplemental resources for kids and teens. In a season when we feel separated, we are excited to share this study together online. 

For more information about the book, watch this short video:

What to Expect

You will be placed into groups of about 20 people based on your day and time preference. A week prior to the start of this study, you will receive the zoom link and homework that needs to be completed before the first class.

Are you willing to be a host? Each group will need a host to walk the group through the provided discussion questions in the book. Their job is simply to watch the time to make sure the group gets through all the questions. Easy! Just answer “yes” on the registration form or email with questions.

We can’t wait to see how God uses this to bring us all together!
