Yes brothers and sisters, it was our joy and privilege to graduate the very first Financial Peace University class offered by the Warrenton Church of Christ. Seen above are our newly graduated spring class of 2017 and we are so proud of each of them. This was a nine week long course that teaches us how to manage money God’s way: and boy is that an awesome concept in today’s world. In this class we learned how to save for emergencies, eliminate debt from our lives permanently (the borrower is slave to the lender), take out the right kind of insurance to protect our families, save for our kid’s collage, build wealth for retirement and ultimately how to give generously and be an excellent steward with God’s money. As Dave Ramsey puts it, you will learn how to live like no one else, so later you can live, and give, like no one else.
On this last day we all watched one of the most powerful lessons in the course. Titled “The Great Misunderstanding”, Dave illustrates how we are but stewards of God’s money. We don’t own it, because everything belongs to God, so it’s up to us to do right with that which God entrusts us. After the class video finished, the room was silent for some moments as we all tried to absorb the powerful message Dave had just delivered. It was awesome and like this entire course – potentially life changing. We wrapped up the day with the certificate presentations, some cake and sparkling Cider. It has been a wonderful experience as we have seen the class members grow, learn, encourage each other and share their experiences and excitement for the future now that they know the path to financial peace.
We plan to offer this class again in the fall, so if you missed enrollment this time, be sure to join us for the next WCOC offering of Financial Peace University. God bless you all.
