It’s time for us to explore as a church what God’s Word has to say about money. There are over 800 Scriptures that apply to personal finances. Jesus talked more about money than any other subject while he was on earth, including heaven, hell, sin or love! That’s what MOMENTUM is all about.
Right now, 7 out of 10 people in America are living paycheck to paycheck. The average household has $9,000 in credit card debt, a car payment of $475, and spends $1.26 for every dollar they earn. Unfortunately, the same is true inside the church. Christ has set us free, but many of us are still living in financial bondage. We simply aren't managing our money the way God intended for us to.
As a church, we want to do something about it. We want to become excellent “asset managers” of all of the resources God has given to us, and we want to help you do the same. We want to help you live in financial freedom and change your family tree. On top of that, you’ll be able to experience the joy of giving without guilt when God prompts you.
As part of MOMENTUM, we’re going to be going through a 9-week class called Financial Peace University (FPU) as a congregation. The course is based on biblical principles, and we have already started seeing the incredible impact it has on peoples’ lives—and not just financially. More than one million families all over the nation have taken FPU.
Here are some of the things they’ve experienced
- Less stress about money and life in general
- Better communication in marriage and no more money fights!
- Confidence about their future and a feeling of empowerment
The class covers everything from the basics of budgeting and saving to real estate and investing in a way that’s easy to understand and fun! And it’s all rooted in the timeless truths of God’s Word. The average family pays off $5,300 and saves $2,700 in the first 90 days of the course.
We can’t wait to see what God does as we seek to honor Him with our finances as a church. There are more details soon to come, but please make plans to join the church family on this exciting journey. When you can talk about money, you can talk about anything. Get ready to experience freedom in your life, finances and relationships with MOMENTUM.
