Financial Peace Program

By Staff | Jan 8, 2009

Two local United Methodist churches are addressing the needs of the economy by offering Financial Peace University to all persons in the local community.

Financial Peace University is more than just finances-it’s about strengthening families, creating stronger marriages and providing a solid financial foundation for single persons and married couples.

In today’s financially volatile market it is more important than ever for all people to become educated about debt, credit and money management.

Learning how to get out of debt quickly and learning how to save are just part of the solution. Learning how to discuss finances will strengthen families not just today but in the future. Most families pass on financial habits to their children. What might your children achieve if they were never in debt? Answer: Lasting wealth.

Financial problems are the number one reason marriages end in divorce. Teaching couples about money, budgeting, spending, saving and how to communicate about finances will help create longer lasting relationships and may slow the number of divorces. Single persons can also benefit from learning about money management.

Financial Peace University is a biblically based accountability curriculum that will teach your church to manage God’s money and resources in a godly way. It empowers them to make the right financial decisions to achieve their financial goals, teaching them to eliminate debt, build wealth, and give like never before. On average, families reduce their debt by $5,300 and save $2,700 in just 91 days.
