Did you know that 89% of the people in a typical American congregation don’t have a financial safety net?
Shocked? We were too. But there’s HOPE! And that hope is Financial Peace University. FPU is a nine-lesson course taught by Dave Ramsey and his team of financial experts. With FPU, you will learn step by step how to handle money using biblical wisdom and common sense.
Through life-changing videos, online tools and resources, and group accountability, you will learn how to create and stick to a budget, save for emergencies, pay off debt, and plan for the future.
Leading a Financial Peace University group here could help shift the giving culture in our church body!
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!
In your FPU group, you’ll be motivated and encouraged by others just like you! When you sign up for FPU, you’ll get your member workbook and one free year of Financial Peace Membership, with access to exclusive online tools to help you on your journey. Contact Pam Brown for more info or sign up today!

Who is the Holy Spirit? We say it every Sunday—I believe in the Holy Spirit—and yet what does that mean? How can we believe in something or rather, someone that we don’t even know? Beginning on January 6th, Dorothy Rinderknecht will guide us on a personal discovery of the most ignored and misunderstood Person in the Church— the Holy Spirit. Sunday mornings at 9:05 am in the library.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
