Financial Peace University: Since almost EVERY decision involves money, you can become educated on how to become financially secure in 5, 10 or 15 years. Avoid the common pitfalls and learn what those preparing for retirement wished they knew earlier in life. Families with children are encouraged to attend. Childcare is provided on-site for a small fee. Financial expert, Dave Ramsey, teaches via DVD, a 2-hour, 8-week, class about being “money smart.” Group discussion questions follow the presentation, which are designed for self-reflection — nothing confidential about one’s personal financial situation is required to be shared. Contact the church office for more information.
