Uncommon Cents

Uncommon Cents is a personal study and small group curriculum that will introduce you to tools and concepts that will help you deal with issues and questions like:

  • “Am I on track with God in my finances?  What does he want or expect of me in this regard?”
  • “How do I determine my financial health?  And how do I improve it?”
  • “How do I get out of and stay out of debt?”
  • “How do I know how much to give to God?”
  • “Why is it we never seem to have enough money to make it until the next paycheck?”
  • “I make enough money and have money to spare, but I sense there is more God wants me to do and that it has to do with my finances.”

These are all important issues that you will work through in Uncommon Cents.  But we believe your experience in Uncommon Cents will yield far more than helpful financial advice, tools and skills.  For you are about to embark on an adventure with God!

God makes a clear distinction between what is holy and what is common (Leviticus 10:10).  As his children, he calls us to a holy or uncommon lifestyle.  “As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.  But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do.”  (1 Peter 1:14-15)  The principles you will read about on the pages that follow are uncommon.  That is, they do not follow the common patterns of thought or practice that our world or culture pursues.

Much of what is common in our culture is so deeply rooted in our lives, that it takes some pretty radical life change to expose it and dig it out.  That kind of life change is something only God can perform.  In Uncommon Cents, you will have the opportunity to draw close to God through a wide variety of activities and life challenge projects.  These are designed to propel you forward in your walk with Christ.  And as you draw near to him, you will not be able to remain unchanged.  He will expose the common in your life and give you the opportunity to replace it with what is uncommon and holy.

We challenge you to prepare your heart to meet with God as you pursue him through Uncommon Cents.  Expect and watch for him to work in your life.  Trust him in ways you’ve been afraid to in the past.  Ask him for his help and provision in your daily life and finances.  If you are married, enter into this adventure with your spouse as a team.  Also, partner with your small group and watch God work in each other’s lives.  He will, because that’s what he does!
