Financial Peace University courses now enrolling

August 21, 2013 

Several Lee’s Summit churches will be offering sessions of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, a popular self-help course toward financial security

The nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success. The course meets once a week where a different lesson is taught by Ramsey on DVD, followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.

The course will be offered in Lee’s Summit at:

• New Beginnings Church located at 214 NE Chipman Road in Lee’s Summit. The classes will begin 6:30 p.m. Sept. 4. Contact Scott Johnson at 816-525-7403 for more information.

Since its inception in 1994 FPU has helped more than 1.5 million families positively change their financial future. Through common-sense principles and small-group accountability, Financial Peace University gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially. On average families who complete the class pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class, nearly 94 percent of those families budget regularly.

After purchasing a membership each participant receives a workbook, Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money, an envelope system and an audio CD library. Participants will also have access to budgeting forms and MP3s of all the lessons.
