Financial Peace University

More than two million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU). Updated in summer 2012, the now nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success. The course meets once a week where a different lesson is taught by Dave on DVD followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing. FPU will be held in Rushville at Plum Creek Christian located at 4011 East 550 N in Rushville. The classes will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28. Contact Robert Hoel at (765) 645-5058 for more information or to register.

Changing Footprints

Do you need shoes? Come to Changing Footprints Warehouse from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 310 Julian St., Rushville. If you have shoes to donate, they can be dropped off during these hours also. Contact: 317-296-3627 or ruth.houk@changingfootprints.com

The Gathering

Gather your canned goods! Once again, The Gathering will be collecting canned goods on the parade route during RushFest on Sept. 21. Last year we collected a little over 225 cans! Let’s top that this year! Support the food pantry and help stock their shelves!

The Gathering is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Stop by and check out the clothing and have a cup of coffee at 245 North Main St., Rushville. The first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., we host a group called “Life Matters.” We’ll sing a few songs, and enjoy a discussion on relevant “life matters!” While the adults meet to get a greater understanding of what the Bible says about life matters, children ages 4 through 4th grade will enjoy an exciting time of silly songs, Bible stories and crafts at KIDS J.A.M. A staffed nursery is available birth to age three. Come as you are! Bring a friend! Questions? Contact Greg Hartwell at 765-561-1134.
