Financial Peace University
What’s the single greatest stressor for people of all ages? What do most families argue about?
We don’t have to tell you, its money. This course, designed by Dave Ramsey, will help you take control of your money, plan for your future, and transform your life. The class includes video teaching and in-class conversation shared by facilitators Kurt and Maegan Cooper. The Coopers are among many individuals and couples in our churches who have shared how taking this course was a great investment of their time and has helped them take control of their finances in ways that have brought peace and open doors.

The course costs $130 for the materials.
