As millions of Americans focus on submitting this year's tax forms before the mid-April deadline, some 200 area residents were trained Sunday night to more effectively manage their finances.
The two-hour seminar was sponsored by Summit Evangelical Free Church and held at Alta's Roxy Theater.
Stewart McChesney, founder and president of the Colorado-based Titus Stewardship Ministries, presented a Biblical perspective on money management and debt-free living. McChesney outlined for participants how to avoid the pitfalls of excessive debt. Attendees were equipped with tools to improve their skills in earning, spending, giving and saving.
The financial seminar was part of the educational component of Summit Church's "All Things Are Possible" building campaign. Construction will begin this Spring on the 22,500 square foot worship center, which will be built on 12 acres of land across from the elementary school, between Main Street and West Highway.
The design of the building will allow 600 worshippers each service in a room that can also be turned into gym space. A large arched window with a cross incorporated is shown in the architect's concept, with smaller arches in the windows and doors. Much of the construction will be cement block with a sprayed textured finish.
