Local Sisters and Misters are invited to take part in a free 8-week class called Faith and Finances, part of the fall ELF Nights at Beech Mennonite Church in Louisville. ELF stands for “Eat, Learn, and Fellowship,” and has classes and activities for all ages, along with a meal to help beat the evening rush.
Megan will be co-teaching the Faith and Finances class with a representative from Everence Financial. Everence is a Christian-based, member-owned financial services organization that offers banking, insurance, asset management and other financial services with community benefits and stewardship education. I’m combining my frugal-living Sisters Shopping on a Shoestring background with my Sunday School teacher persona, to take a closer look at what scripture says about finances, and what that means for daily living and financial planning. The last two weeks of the class, we’ll talk more about couponing and deal hunting, more of the day-to-day things we discuss on the web site.
Classes start this Wednesday night, September 18, and will run Wednesdays through November 6. You are welcome to attend some or all of them, so if you can’t make it tomorrow but could come in the future, you’re more than welcome. A simple dinner is served beginning at 5:45 (donations are accepted, but are not expected from visitors!). Then classes for all ages take place from 6:30 – 7:30. In addition to the Faith & Finances class, other classes for adults and youth include The Beatitudes: Developing Spiritual Character with Grace McNatt, and Hearts & Hands Serving: crafts and service projects with Patty Yoder.
School-aged children will study Jesus’ Last Week, and there will be activities and child care for younger children.
