NASHVILLE – More than two million families have changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.

Updated in summer 2012, the now 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, at which time a different lesson is taught by Ramsey on DVD. It is followed by a small-group discussion.

Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.

First Christian Church, 455 West Southmor Road, Morris, will host a session of Financial Peace University in September. The classes will begin at 5 p.m. Sept. 22.

Contact Denise Visco at 815-942-3454 for more information or to register. 

Since its inception in 1994 FPU has helped more than 2 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. After 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,” Ramsey said. “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.”
