Classes


New Thought is a philosophy of personal growth and spiritual practice through powerful skills that expand our understanding of life and how it works.  NTNC provides ongoing education through classes, workshops, seminars and community gatherings. Learning opportunities help us increase our knowledge of spiritual principles and how to apply them in our daily lives.  When we read, study, meditate and discuss these ideas together, we grow individually and in community to make our world a better place for everyone.

Financial Peace

Sundays 1/7 – 3/4   2018   12-3pm

DEADLINE to order materials 12/17/17

 

Financial peace - two words that we rarely associate together. As we journey through this course, Dave Ramsey will teach us the spiritual ways and responsibilities of accumulating wealth freedom. As Dave rhetorically asks, how can the Universe trust us with more money if we do not know how to respect the money we have?

 

This course has results in low-to-moderate-income families improving their finances with $1,000-$1,400 within the first 90 days. They pay off an average of $5,300 in debt and save $2,700 (an $8,000 win!), again within the first 90 days.

 

 

  • Pay off Debt
  • Stay out of debt
  • Choose proper insurance
  • Save for retirement/College

 

 

Partners learn how to talk to each other about money and work together towards common goals. Singles learn to have an accountability partner to stay focused and empowered.

We learn, together, how to move towards “+” signs in our money accounts at our own pace, and faster.

 

This course is a 9-week program guided by DVD instruction by Dave Ramsey using common-sense money principles, group discussion and independent confidential individual planning.

 

The class materials cost per couple (or single) has been discounted if you pay directly to NTNC $102.30 (includes shipping) by 12/17/17 – costs increase if you delay. There is no additional cost for this course.     Facilitated by: Kelli Baker, RScP

“Become unstuck without becoming unglued.”

 

How can we use our inherent gifts of God for good?

Focus on a situation that’s of concern in the world and ask how to ease the difficulty using Universal Spiritual Principles and a deck of cards containing God qualities called virtues.

 

Draw a card and imagine a positive solution based on the virtue that’s described on the card. We are all born with these God qualities, so any card is the right one. You get to decide if there is any action you want to take to the street, and use the same technique to answer questions that come up in your personal life. Drop-ins welcome.

Bring your lunch.
