Church offers No Debt, No Sweat! for adults
Brentwood Home Page news reports
Harpeth Hills Church of Christ is taking a new approach to Vacation Bible School. While children will take part in traditional VBS activities this summer, adults young and old are invited to participate in the four-night "No Debt, No Sweat!" seminar starting Sunday, June 12.
"At Harpeth Hills, Vacation Bible School has a focus on adults as well as children. We have an emphasis on community outreach - not just internal focus," explained James Vandiver, Older Adult Minister. "Our goal is simple. We want to help you get your money under control so you can get out of debt. Anyone who is interested in this is welcome to come, whether or not they have children attending Vacation Bible School."
The free seminar continues through Wednesday, June 15, from 7:30 until 8:45 p.m. at the church, located at 1949 Old Hickory Boulevard. Each participant will receive a No Debt, No Sweat! workbook.
No Sweat, No Debt! is taught by Steve Diggs, an author, minister, and financial counselor with a heart for struggling people. Having served as Chairman of the Franklin Group, Inc. for over 25 years, today he spends his time teaching people how to use their money without allowing their money to use them.
Participants learn how to get out of debt and how to develop a spending plan that works. They learn the six secrets of the great investors, how mutual funds work, and how to plan for a dignified retirement; learn how to buy cars without making payments to the bank; spouses learn how to stop fighting over money, and young adults learn to avoid their parents' money mistakes, Vandiver shared.
