Dave Ramsey workshop upcoming

Christ Presbyterian Church will host a course to get residents situated financially.

A nine-week course begins June 8 at 6:30 p.m. revolving around the principals taught by financial guru Dave Ramsey.

More than 2.5 million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU).

Organizers say 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 Dave on DVD followed by a small-group discussion.

Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.

Contact the church at 234-3399 for more information or to register.

Through common-sense principles and small-group accountability, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially. On average families who complete FPU pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class nearly 94 percent of those families budget regularly.

“FPU will not only transform the way you handle money, but also your marriage and other areas of your life,” Ramsey said. “This isn’t a boring financial class. We make learning about money fun and easy to understand so people in every situation can benefit from the information.”

Each participant receives a workbook, Dave Ramsey’s “Complete Guide to Money,” an envelope system, budgeting forms and an audio CD library.
