Chicago, IL 4/26/17 — In observance of Money Smart Week, Eden United Church of Christ is pleased to announce it has recently received a “Neighbors in Need” grant from its denomination, the United Church of Christ. The grant will support educational outreach sessions to bring tools for economic empowerment and literacy to the surrounding community.
“We’re pleased to design this series which will bring a wide array of experts to support our neighbors facing economic stresses,” says Rev. Jacki Belile, Eden’s Minister of Congregational Development. Topics will include protection against fraud and scams, debt alleviation, launching successful job searches and more.
The first offering will be Financial Peace University, a nine-week course designed by author and radio host Dave Ramsey. FPU provides the tools to “learn to budget, beat debt, & build a legacy,” says Ramsey. Contact Rev. Jacki at 773-655-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this program starting in early summer.
