Dear Families and Members,
What would your life be like if you had no payments? No credit card bills. No car payments. No home equity loan. Not even a mortgage payment. How much money
would you have for vacations and fun experiences? How much could you give?
What if every dollar you brought home represented an opportunity for the future
instead of an obligation to the past? What kind of difference would it make to your
family, your community, or your church if you were completely debt free?
How you spend your money tells a story. It’s a story about what is most important
to you— what really matters in life—and it shows where your heart is. Jesus said,
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
If the story your financial life is telling conflicts with your heart’s desires, don’t
worry, there’s good news: Your story isn’t written in stone. You can change your
situation. And you can start right now.
Our Savior’s Church and School will be hosting Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace
University, a nine week course starting Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 9:30 am. FPU
Membership (accessible online) is $109/ family for life. That price includes the kit
for the class and grants you access to any and all subsequent FPU classes you
choose to attend.
Financial Peace University (FPU) isn't just about getting out of debt, saving money,
and growing a healthy retirement fund. Although those are all goals of the
curriculum, FPU isn’t really about money at all. It’s about living and giving according
to God’s design, strengthening your marriage and teaching your kids, leaving a
legacy and being the change agent in your family tree. Basically, it’s about learning
what to do with everything God has entrusted into your care.
FPU teaches what most American families are missing in their personal finances:
A Plan. This class covers the “what” and the “how,” but if you want to make positive change in your finances, it might help to consider your own personal “why.”
Do you want stay home with the kids? Retire early? Get on the same financial
page as your spouse? Or maybe you’d like your kids to attend college debt free.
Whatever your reason for wanting to make a change, this class is sure to help
you on your journey toward financial peace. To register for the class at Our
Savior’s, http://www.fpu.com/1066680 (or go to daveramsey.com and search

provided. If you have any questions please contact the event coordinators listed
