Financial Peace University (FPU) provides biblically based, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. We all need a plan for our money and that’s why FPU is for everyone – from the financially secure to the financially distressed. During this nine-week class you will learn how to manage your resources, spend and save wisely, get rid of debt, and much more! Each session will include video teaching by Dave Ramsey, class discussions, interactive small group activities, and homework that will help you apply what you’ve learned. An experienced group facilitator will encourage you through every step so that you can experience the freedom God wants for your life.
Participation in this class requires a Financial Peace University Membership that includes all necessary materials. This lifetime membership can be purchased as part of the registration process for $85 each. A couple attending together may use the same membership.
Financial Peace University will meet for nine weeks on Thursday nights, from 6:30-8:00, starting January 25.
