Q. What if we have to miss a week or two?
A. Please try not to miss; the class participation cannot be replaced. However if you have a previous conflict, you will be given the AUDIO CD’s of every lesson with your FPU Membership and so if you miss a class session: Please just listen to the audio CD and complete the required assignments for that week.
Q. If we are married, should we both go through FPU together?
A. YES! The effectiveness of the class is dependent on the unity of husband and wife committing to prayer and the application of these financial principles together. If at all possible, don’t go at this alone; bring along your spouse at no additional cost!
Q. Is Childcare provided?
A. We are trying to ensure that childcare will be provided for both classes. This will take some creativity so stay tuned. If you can take care of childcare through outside means, please do so. However, we don’t want this to be the reason why you cannot participate. We may try to “hire” some teens or others to help out, so maybe we can all pitch in a few bucks each week for some entrepreneurial teens! We will likely be showing videos from the Financial Peace Junior program while the parents are in class. We haven’t finalized all of the details yet, but please know that we will. So don’t let that keep you from signing up! To see information about FPU Junior click here.
Q. Will we have to attend FPU in the Spring 2015 if we go thru this trial group?
A. Yes, we will all be going through it together. However, you will NOT have to pay any additional cost. And you will probably be in a much better place financially and with your budget – so you may not have to complete the homework that everyone else is doing. But MORE IMPORTANTLY – when we go through FPU as a church we will need many helpers to form the necessary “teams” to lead the church through this process. So you can help behind the scenes as part of one of the various teams – Promotions team, Prayer team, Celebration team, etc. You will be a great help during the corporate FPU experience!
Q. What if we’ve already done FPU or have an FPU membership? Do we have to pay to go through it again?
A. Anyone with previous FPU Membership is welcome to participate in the class for no additional charge. FPU Central online is a new tool that was added to the 9 week FPU. Members who have the 13-week material do not have a Membership ID so they won’t have access to FPU Central. To get access to FPU Central a returning Member can upgrade their entire FPU Membership ($49) or workbook only ($19.95) A Member ID will be included with either option. If you would like to upgrade, please have them contact Kelli 877-378-2667 Ext: 5700 and mention your Name/Class Location and she will gladly assist you.
If you would like to watch a video from Dave Ramsey – there are plenty on Youtube. Here’s an introduction video of Dave Ramsey explaining the origins of Financial Peace University.
