Financial Peace University | Lives Changed By Christ · LCBC Church

Common sense for your dollars and cents

Financial Peace University is a life-changing 9-week program that takes the knowledge of the Bible and turns it into real action in our lives through a simple step-by-step process. The program includes practical lessons to eliminate debt, build wealth, give like never before, and much more!

During our Set For Life series, starting January 5, 6, and 7, our goal is to see 10,000 people in our church family find financial freedom by going through Financial Peace University (FPU).

88% of people are living beyond their limits and are one change of circumstances from a financial crisis. Jesus wants us to live a remarkable life, but debt robs us of that reality.

Even if you feel good about where you are financially, the following statistics give us an idea of what those around us are experiencing:

70% of us are "Normal"
—broke and busted

  • Statistically over $30k in debt
  • Annual income is $40-$60k
  • It'll take you almost 6 years to pay off your debt

16% of us are "Bankrupt"

  • Statistically we have 2 new cars ($32k),
    a school loan ($20k), and credit card debt ($8k)
  • Total monthly expenses: $2,840

2% of us are experiencing
"Death by Credit Cards"

  • Same as the "Bankrupt" 16% above, but add
    an additional $100k in credit card debt
  • Too much pressure - you've lost all hope!

Financial Peace University

Over the last six months we walked with our Staff and key volunteer teams through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University (FPU) in order to help write a new story for everyone who calls LCBC home.

Over 2,500 people from our church have learned the principles of wise money management, and the results have been incredible. In just one FPU class alone (about 61 households) $318,872 of debt was paid off, $175,125.66 cash was saved, and 132 credit cards were cut up.

Now it’s your turn.

Join us on the weekend of January 5, 6, and 7 as we kick off our new five-week series, Set for Life. Dave Ramsey will be joining our weekend gatherings live to help us get started.

Each of our locations will be offering multiple Financial Peace University Groups throughout the week starting in mid-January. It’s a 9-week course that will teach you the nuts and bolts of wise money management that will help you get set for life!

We have groups to fit every schedule you can imagine, meeting in church and homes throughout the state of Pennsylvania.

Is there a cost?

We are able to offer membership kits for $69 per family for the Set for Life series. We guarantee that the investment will be worthwhile. Many of us can cover this cost, but don’t let cost be the barrier that stops you. Reach out to us and we'd be happy to start the conversation around how to get you a kit.


What is Financial Peace University?

Financial Peace University is a 9-week course taught by America's most trusted financial advisor, Dave Ramsey. Dave and his teaching team will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more.

What will I learn?

At FPU you’ll get your questions answered by Dave Ramsey, his team, and trained facilitators on a wide range of topics;

  • Budgeting, saving, and paying off debt
  • How to get on the same page with your spouse when it comes to money (yes, it’s possible!)
  • Identifying which types of insurance are best for you
  • Planning and saving for major expenses
  • Investing in your future, giving generously, and more
What happens in an FPU Group?

Some FPU Groups meet in homes and others meet on-site across our locations. Regardless of where you meet, our time is centered around discussion. We’ll watch a 45-minute video lesson where Dave Ramsey will walk us through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. We'll wrap up with a group discussion, Q&A, and celebration of people who are taking their next step. Each week there will be homework to keep you engaged in the journey during the week.

I’m doing okay financially, so is it worth it?

It’s totally worth it. FPU isn’t just for those who are struggling financially. The reality is we all have room to grow in this area. The topics covered through the course will help you regardless of where you are on your financial journey.

When is this happening?

Groups launch mid-January and run through mid-March. Each location will offer multiple options during the week to fit everyone’s schedules.

What if I have a conflict in my schedule?

We know that life is busy, so we’ve worked hard to accommodate just about every schedule imaginable. Look over the options; we’re confident we have something to fit your unique rhythm. If you can’t commit to come consistently over all 9 weeks, it’s not a problem. At each location we have multiple options. You can jump into the class that best fits your schedule for that particular week.

Is there anything for my kids?

During the Set for Life series kids through adults will spend five weeks learning about how to wisely handle finances. During the 9-week Financial Peace University groups, many of our offerings will have kidCare available from newborns through Grade 4. Check out the class options to see what options are available for you.

For our high school students, we’re offering a special FPU option that will break down these principles on their level.

What is in it for LCBC?

Our only goal for FPU is to help every person in our church live a remarkable life. We believe that if we learn to apply the principles taught through FPU we'll be on our way to living a life marked by peace and margin. We believe so strongly that this will help you that we’re investing our resources to make this as accessible as possible.

Why is the the Church shifting other environments during this time?

Focus matters! We believe becoming good managers of our resources is a fundamental building block that is critical for living a life of freedom and impact. From Janurary-March, our primary focus will be be on Financial Peace University classes in small groups at all of our locations. We want everyone to be on the same page for Set for Life, which is why we believe it’s important to focus on one curriculum during this series.

Why should I listen to Dave Ramsey?

Dave Ramsey has been there before. He went from millionaire to bankrupt and back. He learned these principles the hard way, through personal experience. He created Financial Peace University nearly 25 years ago after learning how to pay off debt, save and spend wisely, and build wealth. Today, millions have used the same principles to transform their lives.

What is kidCare?

kidCare is a safe and fun environment for children ages 6 weeks through 11 years old to enjoy while you are learning how to help your family be set for life! In all of our environments, you'll find trained and cleared volunteers who are excited to connect and engage with your children.

How can I help?

This winter we will need hundreds of volunteers to help us create an amazing FPU experience. If you would like to serve as an FPU volunteer, we'd love to hear from you! Complete this form.
