January 6-February 17

Epiphany (ee-PIH-fuhny), meaning "manifestation" or "shining forth", is the celebration of God's incarnation in the child Jesus, and also that His gift of grace is extended to all, both Jew and Gentile. Epiphany contains several important festivals: First, the day of Epiphany celebrates the visit of the magi and their prophetic gifts declaring Jesus to be Messiah, priest, and king. Next, Jesus' baptism reminds us that Jesus came to fulfill all righteousness - and God the Father declares that Jesus is His Son. Finally, near the close of the Epiphany season comes the Transfiguration, commemorating the day when Christ, for just a brief moment, pulled back the curtain and let the disciples have just a glimpse of His Godly glory - and, once again, God the Father declares that Jesus is His Son. The two colors of Epiphany are White and Green - White for the glory and purity of Christ, and Green for spiritual growth which comes from hearing Christ's revelation as God. At the end of Epiphany, we come down from the mountaintop and begin the penitent walk toward Christ's passion and death in the season of Lent.

You are able to attend FPU by purchasing a membership kit ($110 per family).  This membership includes admission to all classes plus class materials.  One membership is sufficient for an immediate family (spouse or fiancé, older kids living at home), and is valid at any FPU class around the country for the rest of your life.  There are no hidden fees, additional classes, or gimmicks.  You may purchase your own membership kit from, or contact our office and we'll get one for you.  If $110 is more than you can afford, we believe so strongly in this program that our congregation offers grants, even to the general public.  Just ask for a grant application.  There is no obligation except to agree to attend or make up every class session.

From Pastor Bahr: "I strongly recommend participation in Financial Peace University.  Taking this class and becoming familiar with Dave Ramsey's methods was one of the best financial decisions my wife and I have ever made.  The advice he gives will pay for your initial class fee 1,000 times over.  I've seen a lot of financial 'gurus' with all sorts of magic plans to get rich quick, but Dave is different.  He offers the 'get rich slow' plan!  Simply put, if you do what he shows you to do, you will succeed with money.  Guaranteed.  Make the commitment, sign up, and see for yourself."

If you'd like to see more before paying anything, you can visit any one session for free!  Not just a preview, a real session.  Take your pick from the list above and visit to find out when it will be offered next.
