Raising Financially Healthy Kids

This seminar will provide valuable information, tips and "hands-on" strategies for teaching and training your kids to have a healthy, biblicaly-based perspective of money and to learn to manage it wisely at an early age.

Surveys show that most parents want their kids to learn to be wise with money but less than a third are actually doing something about it.  Many admit they just don't know where to start or they had few good role models when they were kids.  Dave Briggs teaches Raising Financially Healthy Kids which is a fun seminar that will provide the following ... A process for doing allowance well ... a way to teach your kids a good work ethic ... a method for starting a kid-friendly budget ... ways to avoid materialism and an entitlement attitude in your kids, instilling an attitude of generosity and much much more.  Parents who have attended this seminar in the past have said ... "If I knew it was going to be this good I would have invited a bunch of my friends!"

This seminar is presented periodically at Central's two largest campuses and will be scheduled in the near future. In the meantime, anyone wishing to view the seminar on DVD can send an email to request it at: Enrich@CentralAZ.com

The Legacy Journey is presented from time to time at Central's various campuses. The next session will be posted as soon as it is added to the Enrich calendar.

Financial Planning Ministry (FPM) ... Creating Wills & Trusts
Enrich, in partnership with Financial Planning Ministry, is making available the opportunity to obtain a Will or Trust at NO COST to you.  As a ministry, our only request is that you seriously consider leaving at least a small portion of your estate to God’s work after you pass.

This is a great opportunity since many people who know they need a will or a trust put it off due to the cost involved.

The process involves attending a 75-minute seminar to learn about wills, trusts and estate planning and then signing up for a one-on-one session a couple of weeks later to create your will or trust.  

The next seminar is planned for the Mesa Campus on Sunday night, April 8 from 5:30 pm to 7:15 pm.  Anyone interested in registering or finding out more information can email: Enrich@CentralAZ.com.
