Financial Peace classes scheduled

More than one and a half million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU). 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 where a different lesson is taught by Dave on DVD followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.

FPU classes will begin at 6:30 p.m. June 3 at Mansfield Seventh Day Adventist Church, 1951 N. Main St. Contact Derry Jackson at (817) 483-6551 for more information or to register.
