Dave Ramsey’s 13-week lessons on getting out of debt, Financial Peace University, will begin at The Rock Baptist Church on Sandy Creek Road Sunday, March 1, at 3 p.m. The program teaches families and individuals how to handle their money through common-sense principles and small group accountability.

The program is made up of 13 lessons taught by Ramsey on DVD in a fun and entertaining way.

“I like to put the cookies on the shelf where everyone can reach them,” says Ramsey.

After each lesson the group meets to help each other plan budgets, discuss successes and temptations, and support each other in their journey to beat debt and build wealth.

As they work on a total money makeover, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months.

Topics covered include saving for emergencies, budgeting, relationship and money issues, buying big bargains, getting out of debt, understanding investments, understanding insurance, retirement and college planning, buyer beware, real estate mortgages, and careers and extra jobs

Each class participant needs a kit. Special rates are routinely available online at or by calling 888-227-3223.

Included in the cost of the kit is a lifetime family membership to FPU, allowing the participant to return to any class at anytime for a refresher course. The kit also includes an FPU workbook, an FPU envelope system, 13 audio lessons, bonus CD, budgeting forms, debit card holders, and Ramsey’s best-selling book – Financial Peace.
