    What is Financial Peace University?

    We all need a plan for our money, no matter what stage of life you are in. Whether you are a recent college graduate finding your first job, a parent trying to save for your child’s college education or someone planning for retirement, this class is designed to help you be the best steward of your financial resourcesFinancial Peace University is a 9 week course developed for church use by Dave Ramsey to teach the basics of money management.  The class meets for two hours and includes a video lesson by Dave Ramsey and class discussion and interactive small group activities to teach practical steps to create a household budget, manage your money wisely and get free of debt. Sample class topics include: Super Saving, Relating with Money, Cash Flow Planning, Dumping Debt, Retirement and College Planning, and the Role of Insurance.

    The Board of Christian Stewardship has offered this class the past four years with over 50 households participating.  A group snapshot taken at the beginning and end of each 9 week session measures the amount of money saved and debt reduced.  The families taking the course at Plymouth have reported an average of $4,333 in reduced debt and $5,179 in average savings – very comparable to the advertised results. For more information contact Jennifer Hines, Director of Operations and Finance, at 515.255.3149 ext. 19 or jhines@plymouthchurch.com.

The Preaching of Paul and a Punk Rock Song: Acts 13 and 14

  This week’s Scripture reading reminds me of a punk rock song. No, seriously. Belfast’s own Stiff Little Fingers has a song called “Nobody’s Hero.” It’s a (loud, angry) reminder that human beings have a habit of trusting too much in mere mortals. But the thing is: you don’t need a punk rock song to... Read More
