RISE assists in making faith matter

In these trying times people are searching for ways to better deal with their circumstances.  The church has always played an important role for those in need, and in Memphis there is one church that is uniquely meeting its congregation at their point of need.  Through financial literacy and education, Faith Christian Church is working with the RISE Foundation to make faith matter.

Church leaders identified financial literacy as an effort that the entire congregation could work on as a church body.  RISE conducted a Common Cents series in December 2019 and February 2020 for parishioners seeking to improve their knowledge of budgeting and how to teach credit to their families.

Everyone in attendance, including staff, were appreciative in learning how to better budget their finances, fill in money gaps, and how to recognize and change poor spending habits.

The series was facilitated by RISE on Saturday mornings and assignments were given.  The interactive series utilized in class and family-oriented assignments that sparked discussion and active participation.  Topics included banking, budgeting, debt management and spending strategies.  At the conclusion of the series participants surveyed responded that they had a better understanding of debt, how to improve their credit scores and how to increase their savings.
