A nine-week program to help people handle their finances and get out of debt will begin April 29 at Grace Community Church in Seal Beach.

Called Financial Peace University, it is a course created by financial advisor Dave Ramsey. The sessions include a Ramsey video followed by guided discussion and includes a workbook to individualize financial plans.

"With Financial Peace University, you and your spouse will learn how to create (and stick to) a budget, save for emergencies, and make a plan for the future," Grace Community Pastor Justin Fox said. "Doesn’t that sound peaceful?"

Classes will be from 7 to 9 p.m. for nine consecutive Mondays, April 29 to June 24. People can come as a couple or individually. Cost is $109, which includes all materials and access to Ramsey's Financial Peace network.

Grace Community Church is at 138 Eighth St. in Seal Beach. The signup link is https://fpu.com/1085701. For questions, call Fox at (562) 596-1605 or email justin@gracesealbeach.org.
