What a roller coaster our economy has been on! Many of us are forced to ride the ups and downs, driven to worry and fear in view of force reductions, drops in 401k account values and continuing challenges to pay bills and make the numbers work.

This fall, our congregation is seeking to engage every member into a process that helps us become more effective managers of the gifts that God gives. This is an opportunity to grow your heart through God’s Word and your skills through management of the resources God gives in such a way as to dispel worry, so that you can live the words of Jesus, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.”

Each household that participates is asked to make a $100 investment for the materials. It is an investment that will pay great dividends in the years that follow. We have a special opportunity to lower that investment to $80 for those who would purchase the Financial Peace materials by the end of June. If you would choose this option, please make a check out for $80 and place it in a special envelope, indicating the purpose on the envelope.
