Need Peace?
leave money stress
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
If there is one thing in this world that can rob you of the peace that Jesus means for you to have, it’s finances! However, restoration of that peace can be helped tremendously by learning how to handle your finances biblically. After all, God is the source of all we have, so why not look to him for how to manage the resources he has entrusted to us.
Did you know that 89% of the people in a typical American congregation don’t have a financial safety net? Shocked? I was too. But there’s HOPE through FPU! Through life-changing videos, online tools, and resources, and group accountability, our church members will learn how to create and stick to a budget, save for emergencies, pay off debt, and plan for the future. Just imagine the impact we could have on the community if we were all debt-free! Marriages and families would be strengthened. People would be freed up to be outrageously generous. This kind of hope will ignite change in our entire community!
Toward that end…
We are offering Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) class this fall as a way for us all to grow in our lives as Christian disciples. This 9-week class will provide information on how to effectively manage your money while applying Christian values; and, we are encouraging everyone in the church to include this class in your personal fall discipleship plans! Sarah and I took it a number of years ago, and it changed our lives!
The class will be offered:
  • Sundays from 4:00-5:30 pm (beginning September 22)
  • Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 pm (beginning September 24)

The class normally costs $139 per family, but the Stewardship Team will subsidize the cost for church members. So, your cost to attend this class will only be $50 per family! (Payable at, or before, the first class.)
