Financial Peace University
Sundays, 5–7 pm
Give us nine weeks and we will…
- Give you an opportunity to grow closer to Christ.
- Help you get a deeper understanding of being good and faithful managers.
- Help you connect with a group.
- Help you understand how God created you.
- Help you communicate more effectively with your spouse.
- Provide a framework and tools for REAL change.
Financial Peace University (FPU) is a life-changing program that teaches you how to make the right decisions with your money. You’ll be empowered with the practical skills and confidence needed to achieve your financial goals and experience true financial peace.
FPU lasts nine weeks (plus two online bonus lessons). In addition, you receive individual access to FPU Central that has online tools and mp3’s of all nine sessions.
The class is FREE but you must have a kit. The cost of an FPU kit is normally $99 but this year we are able to offer it for $95. If you already have a kit you can take the class for FREE with registration.
For more information, contact Keith and Sharon Harty at firstname.lastname@example.org
Change the Way You Think
Each of the nine Lessons deals with a different topic that will change the way you think about personal finance. You will learn about how to save money, live on a budget, communicate about money, eliminate debt, find bargains, and experience the joy of giving.
Over 650,000 families have completed FPU with amazing success. On average, they pay off $5,300 in debt and save $2,700 in just 13 weeks. That’s an $8,000 change in position in just 91 days! The classes at Christ Fellowship have averaged $10,973 of debt paid off per family in one year and averaged $2,486 in savings per family in one year.

Key answers for alumni
Q: What if I (or others) have gone through FPU already?

A: FPU gives you a lifetime membership for a reason. It covers a breadth of material from getting out of debt to building a savings to give away.
