“Being Smart with Money” Classes for Teenagers and Adults begin January 7

Contributed by: Charlie Eastburn

Free preview classes will be offered on Sunday, January 7 for teenagers and adults to move toward financial peace in their lives. Teenagers are offered an opportunity to begin planning for their financial futures. Whether you are planning to find a job, enter into military service, begin training at a vocational/technical school or enroll in college after completing high school, it’s smart to develop a plan. For over 25 years Financial Peace University has been offered primarily for adults. A few years ago, Dave Ramsey’s organization developed a course specifically for teenagers.  Students participating in the course, regardless of their current financial situation, will learn how to be smart with money, how to be informed buyers, how to avoid debt, invest for the future and live differently than many others in our society. Starting early with a practical plan will prevent many problems in the future. The truth is, there is no time like the present. You will see how to manage what you’ve got right now, so that you’ll be able to do more with your money for years to come, Adults also have the opportunity to obtain practical ways to eliminate debt completely, evaluate and purchase the proper types and amounts of insurance, invest wisely, budget effectively, prepare for retirement and become better stewards of whatever money they have. No investment products nor insurance policies are marketed during these classes. Participants merely get new tools to handle their money in smart and life changing ways regardless of how much or how little they may have.  The teenagers’ class starts at 3:00 p.m. and the adult class starts at 5:00 p.m. Each class lasts about 90 minutes and the materials cost $25 for Teenagers and $90 for adults. Couples pay only $90. The classes will meet each Sunday for a total of nine sessions.  The benefits will greatly surpass the cost of the materials.  First Baptist Church-Groesbeck is offering the use of their building for these classes. Call 254.729.2635 if you have any questions.
