Financial Freedom Classes
Financial Peace University (FPU)
What could the people of God do for His Kingdom if they were debt-free? Find out the answer to this and other pertinent questions in a Financial Peace University class.
The FPU program is a 10-week video study created by Dave Ramsey that teaches how to apply proven common sense principles that will allow you to walk in financial peace and become debt-free. The cost is $90 for the membership kit.
*Note: When the 10-week program has begun, you are welcome to start in the middle and make up the classes you missed during the next cycle. However in order to get the maximum benefit of the program we recommend taking the classes in order from start to finish, and we don't recommend beginning after the third week.
Check out Dave Ramsey's website for helpful information on Dave and his ministry.

For many American’s, social security benefits are crucial for a comfortable retirement. Yet,many have little understanding of how the program works or how to get the maximum benefit for their family. In recent months there have been major changes to the social security program. We will review these changes and explain who can still take advantage of these claiming strategies before they disappear. Now more than ever, it is vital to know how to determine the best age to begin benefits, strategies to maximize benefits and how to coordinate social security benefits with other sources of retirement income. For more information, check us out online at crossroads.org/care-help or contact us HERE.
Trained counselors help people and families evaluate their assets, liabilities, income and expenses. With this information, they are assisted in developing a spending plan to effectively allocate income, faithfully tithe, pay bills in a timely manner, eliminate debt, increase savings and create surpluses for God's kingdom. The resulting peace and growing contentment enable counselees to connect more intimately with God, family, others and the world.
