Financial Freedom Classes

Financial Peace University (FPU)
What could the people of God do for His Kingdom if they were debt-free? Find 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 $100 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.

Created in collaboration with The Center for Innovative Care in Aging at the John Hopkins University School of Nursing, this workshop will provide comprehensive information on housing options in retirement and the financial implications of these choices. We will discuss a proactive approach that will help you design a plan that suits your needs and financial situation. The pros and cons of aging at home, independent living and various levels of assisted living will be covered, along with the costs of each option. Attendees will be provided with material to help you assess your housing needs and evaluate the various housing options available in your community.

Financial Mentoring

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.

There are two ways to get connected with a Financial Mentor. Fill out the Financial Snapshot form, save it, and then e-mail it to OR you can complete a Mentor Request Form at our Financial Freedom Ministry table in the Grand Hallway.
