Pittsboro, NC – Chatham Community Church will be hosting Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) beginning Monday, September 14 at 6:30 pm. The class will be held at the Chatham Community Church offices in Pittsboro at Chatham Mills (480 Hillsboro Street Suite 110, Pittsboro, NC 27312).  FPU runs for nine weeks, one night a week for one and a half hours so we will finish up on Monday, November 9. Child care can be provided if needed.

Financial Peace UniversityIf you are not familiar with FPU this is a class on how to manage money from a biblical perspective. In the nine weeks we cover, saving, eliminating debt, investing, college funding, retirement, insurance, how money affects relationships and a host of other financial issues.

Ok…you may be thinking, this is for people who have a lot of debt right? No, that is not necessarily true. Basically, if you know how to spell the word “m o n e y”, have ever seen money, have ever used money, are broke or a millionaire, this class is for you. When our family started FPU we thought we were doing well managing our money, and we were to some extent, but taking this class has completely changed our financial future and allowed us to focus on and achieve our financial goals.

To sign up click here. It is time to change your future!

Dave Cunningham is a Financial Peace University coordinator
