Financial Peace University – Wednesdays 6:00pm-7:30pm. Do you use money? Do you need money? Does handling money God’s way really work?
The average American has substantial consumer debt from mortgages to auto loans to credit cards, and would struggle to meet a $1,000 emergency expense.
The average graduate of Financial Peace University pays down $5,300 of debt within 90 days, saves $2,700 over those same 90 days, and learns techniques to gain control over their money that can last forever and can be passed down to their children.
FFPC is offering the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University class beginning Wednesday, September 5 at 6PM in the Conference Room, facilitated by Elder Larry Zimbler, MST, EA, and ELP (a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider). Childcare is available. The class lasts between 1½ and 2 hours once per week until November 7th (no class on 10/24). Typically attendees bond closely with each other and learn not only from Dave Ramsey but from each other.
This class is for young professionals, newlyweds, those in debt, those not in debt yet wishing to have their money work better for them, and anyone who uses money. If you don’t need this class, I guarantee that you know someone that does. It is an investment in your/their future financial security and, if followed, is the smartest investment you can make.
Register online at http://www.fpu.com/1066799; there is a $109 cost for materials when you sign up – typically $149.
