Stafford Crossing will begin Financial Peace University (FPU) classes on our campus starting on Sunday, January 27. We will offer two classes on Sunday afternoons, at 1:30 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. Childcare will be offered for a fee at the 3:45 p.m. class only. This nine week course helps individuals/families plan for their money by teaching God’s way of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions, and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!

The cost per family/individual taking FPU is $100 for the FPU Kit. Class sizes will be limited.

Childcare will be offered at a nominal cost of $5 per child per week, with a maximum of $13 per family per week. To reduce the weekly administrative tasks, if possible, parents are asked to pay for either four weeks or the entire nine weeks upfront.  However, in no case do we want childcare costs to keep anyone from taking FPU.

FPU classes meet for around 1 3/4 hour each week for nine weeks. See the full nine-week lesson plan.

Everyone can benefit from this program, regardless of age (whether you are 21 or 61), income (whether you make $12,000 or $100,000 per year), and marital status. Everyone benefits from FPU! Over 225 families/individuals from Stafford Crossing have taken FPU over the last 9 years and their results closely mirror those of millions across the US that have taken FPU. That is, over a 90 day period, families have reduced their debt by $5,300 and increased savings by $2,700.
Benefits of the program:
  • 70% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
  • Financial stress begins to dissipate throughout this program.
  • The church congregation begins to reap the benefits of congregation members walking with the Prince of Peace.
  • Statistics show 37% (highest rate) of marital problems derive from financial situations.
  • With the burden of debt lifted, families are able to give more to support worthy ministries and building programs.
  • Participants are freed up financially and emotionally so they can become the givers God designed them to be - both with their finances and their time.
  • Teaches people how to handle God’s money God’s way.
  • Marriages are enriched as husbands and wives begin communicating instead of fighting about money; children learn God’s ways of handling money from their parents; and singles find needed support to make wise financial decisions.
  • Far too many people are living out of balance spiritually because they are so consumed trying to keep up with the rat race. They are "choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life." Even though many are not willing to admit it - Money is Controlling Their Lives!!! Many are finding themselves slaves to their lifestyle in debt.
