Northshore Community Church (NCC) will hold a nine-lesson course on finance beginning April 18.

The course is through Ramsey Solutions’ Financial Peace University (FPU) and was created by financial expert Dave Ramsey, according to a press release. It provides people with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success.

FPU will include lessons on budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.

“FPU will not only transform the way you handle money, but also your marriage and other areas of your life,” Ramsey said in the release. “This isn’t a boring financial class. We make learning about money fun and easy to understand so people in every situation can benefit from the information.”

According to the release, an FPU membership includes immediate access to newly revised online video lessons, financial coaching assistance, digital tools and a one-year subscription to the EveryDollar Plus budgeting tool. Also included is access to Legacy Journey and Smart Money Smart Kids courses. Legacy Journey walks families and individuals through what to do once they have control of their finances and helps them navigate their way through building wealth. Smart Money Smart Kids helps parents teach their children to make wise financial decisions.

NCC is located at 10301 NE 145th St. in Kirkland. The classes will begin at 6:30 p.m. and run on Thursdays beginning April 18. Go to www.fpu.com/1086873 for more information or to register.
