The Laingsburg United Methodist Church will be offering Financial Peace University beginning Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. with a free preview session. If you decide that FPU is the right program for you, you can sign up for the class at that time and order your FPU kit which includes 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. To learn more about the program, visit www.daveramsey.com or contact the Laingsburg UMC office. 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. 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, 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,” says Ramsey. “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.” Ramsey knows first-hand the pain that financial stress can cause. After creating a net worth of more than a million dollars by age 26, he quickly lost it all. Since then Ramsey has helped families and individuals across the country learn how to get control of their finances and avoid debt so they don’t have to experience the same pain he did.
Every Sunday morning, beginning at 10am, we have our weekly worship service in our sanctuary. During this service, we sing and hear music, read scripture lessons, have a sermon, share community prayers, and much more. We like to describe our services as being relaxed and comfortable while maintaining some important worship traditions. Everyone is welcome in the service, especially children of all ages (even crying is welcome – that’s a child’s prayer, too). We promise that you will not be made to introduce yourself to the church or embarrass you in any way. We hope that you’ll come and enjoy a worship service with us.
