February 5 – Financial Peace University

Financial Peace University  |  Begins Wednesday, February 5 @ 6:30 pm
Peace and money sound like opposites. But it is not only possible it is doable. Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace leads you on a journey of freedom from financial chaos and enslavement. No matter how much you make, how much you have, or how much debt you’ve accumulated, FPU teaches you how to use the resources God has entrusted to you wisely – and not be used by them! 
If you want to know more about FPU, there are numerous people at Grace who have applied what they’ve learned from this 9 week seminar to transform their lives and walk in freedom from financial chaos. Talk with Curtis and Ashley Hoffman ( or Dennis and Patricia Menn ( 
The FPU costs $100. And it’s abundantly worth the investment. The resources and material you receive. The content you learn, and the freedom you come to know! If you’ve never taken FPU before, register today. We are absolutely convinced of it’s value for you and your family. If you’ve taken the course before, you are also welcome to join again. When you click the register link, it will take you directly to the Financial Peace website.
