FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY...We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!

• Approximately 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, regardless of their income.

This means that “broke” has become the new normal in our nation.

• At the end of the month, many individuals simply have nothing left because of debt and expenses.

If this is you, I’ve got good news. You are not alone.

• You may be sitting there wishing you could get more financial margin in your life. If you’d like to

take control of your money, then listen carefully.

• As a church, we want to share a practical plan that can help you discover God’s way of handling money. We want to empower you to get on a budget, get out of debt, save for the future, and take control of your money.

• Financial Peace University is that plan. This 9-week class taught by money expert Dave Ramsey can change your financial story in a matter of weeks—and your family tree for generations to come.

FPU classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks

Team Helpers assist Team Leaders in escorting groups for age to age.
Snack Co-Chair will work with the other co-chair to organize snack.
Station Helpers assist Station leaders in helping kids with crafts, games, science, etc.  Station helpers are not responsible for the planning of the station. Station leaders have already been recruited.
