Generous Living

It makes no difference what your age, financial experience or annual income–at Lincoln Berean we offer a variety of resources for wise living that are about more than just managing a paycheck. They’re about changing perspectives and transforming lives.


Managing your Money Workshop:  Achieve your financial goals by controlling expenses, reducing debt and increasing savings while you become a better steward of God’s resources. (one day, offered four times a year)

Managing your Money Class:  This comprehensive course will teach you how to track income and expenses while you learn to give first, save second and live on the rest while you pay down debt. (6 weeks)

Understanding Wills & Trusts:  This class covers everything from establishing or updating wills to designating a final gift to the kingdom. (2 weeks)

Money Talks
