This weekend at The Orchard we continued our series called Baggage.

Scott talked about the tough topic of addiction. We talked about turning to God, telling someone we trust and fighting for freedom from addictions. We can’t overcome addictions on our own, otherwise they wouldn’t be addictions to start with. We need God’s help to do what we can’t do on our own.

Scott also mentioned that we may be at the point where counseling is necessary in order to get past our baggage.  Click here if you need to access a list of currently recommended Christian counselors.

Not sure about Financial Peace University? by orchardblog

Are you on the fence about whether you should go to Financial Peace University @ The Orchard or not?  Listen to what one person who attends The Orchard and has been through FPU had to say…

My wife and I got married in Nov 1999, when I was a 28-year old Youth Minister and she was 3 months into her teaching career after graduating college that May.  Neither of us had any good training as to how to handle our money, but lots of bad examples.  Between the two of us and our cars, student loans, credit cards and financed furniture, we had almost $60K in consumer debt and we didn’t even own a house.  I don’t think we even knew how much trouble we were about to be in…we were clueless.   I can honestly say that I don’t know where we would be if we hadn’t gone through FPU at our church.  Probably normal…broke!  Today, 9 years later, after practicing the “baby-steps” that we learned in FPU, Tricia and I have no debt except our home; we don’t finance ANYTHING; we have an emergency fund, savings and retirement; and best of all we never fight about money!  [That just leaves more time to fight about sex and housework…I’M KIDDING!!!!]  The $100 that I spent 9 years ago has paid for itself hundreds of times over.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re broke, “normal,” or rich (even by American standards) FPU has a lot for everyone.  God has blessed us tremendously through what we’ve learned to practice through FPU.
Sign up this weekend in the Foyer-  we promise you won’t regret it!   See you then!
