Did you know that 89% of the people in a typical American congregation don’t have a financial safety net?
Shocked? I was too. But there’s HOPE! And that hope is Financial Peace University. FPU is a nine-lesson course taught by Dave Ramsey and his team of financial experts. With FPU, our members will learn step by step how to handle money using biblical wisdom and common sense.
Through life-changing videos, online tools and resources, and group accountability, our church members will learn how to create and stick to a budget, save for emergencies, pay off debt, and plan for the future.
Leading a Financial Peace University group here could help shift the giving culture in our church body!
Just imagine the impact we could have on the community if we were all debt-free! Marriages and families would be strengthened. People would be freed up to be outrageously generous. This kind of hope will ignite change in our entire community!

Do you or someone you know need help with exterior home repairs?
A Brush with Kindness may be able to help! Click HERE for Application. A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity’s newest program. Going on 10 years of helping Goodhue County low-income homeowners, ABWK is a unique program that enables Habitat to reach out to the community in an effort to sustain and improve existing homes throughout our county. ABWK is a program that offers exterior home improvements such as painting, roof repair, landscaping, and other minor repairs.
On Giving Tuesday, millions of people will make a donation in support of their favorite charity. But if you use Amazon Smile, you can consistently give back to Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity when you buy items you regularly purchase.
Start by logging onto http://www.smile.amazon.com, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase–excluding shipping, handling and taxes—to Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity. The service makes sense for the millions of Americans who shop on Amazon and subscribe to its Prime service, which offers free two-day shipping.
The company says that tens of millions of products on the site are eligible for Amazon Smile donations, and it promises that using the service won’t result in higher prices. Seems like a win-win situation for you and Habitat.
