"Financial Peace University was a life changer for my wife Deb and me. We both have looked at each other several times during and after the FPU class and said “wish we would have done this when we were twenty years old.” Not only did this class bring us more in line with how the other person thinks about our financial partnership in our marriage, but it also stressed God’s love and gifts he showers on us consistently and suggests different ways we can be good stewards of those gifts. This class also put the subject of money out in the open for discussion and made it easier for us to pass the information onto our children. After this class we now have a plan going forward as to what to do with our treasures the Lord has entrusted to us and we have become better at giving and living."

"After attending the 9 week Financial Peace University course, we highly recommend it to anyone interested in evaluating their financial situation, regardless of age or marital status. Dave Ramsey's Christian based approach is both entertaining and thought provoking. We enjoyed the fellowship and group discussions. As a family, we now take a positive approach on how we handle our money, always knowing that it is a gift from God. Our "take away" from the course is that we now incorporate good practice on budgeting, savings and giving. We will definitely have our daughters read the FPU book, and we would like to see the course incorporated into St. John's teen ministry program."

Finishing Strong

This weekend marks the last Sunday of the fiscal (budget) year. Please consider an extra offering to God over and above your weekly gift, as a response to God's grace in Christ Jesus. These offerings enable us to carry out the gospel ministry that the Lord has set before us, to reach new souls with the message of Jesus, and to nurture the souls entrusted to our congregation's care. Each gift, large or small, honors the one who has made us eternally rich in Jesus Christ. May we always appreciate and participate in the partnership of sharing his saving name!
