NEW PHILADELPHIA -- The Tuscarawas County Public Library System and the New Philadelphia Faith Christian Church have partnered to offer a three-part series called "Finding Financial Security."

Each of the three sessions will be held on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the meeting room of the county library located at 121 Fair Ave. NW in New Philadelphia.

The idea for the series came about while Faith Christian Church was offering the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace series.

"As we worked through the Dave Ramsey training, we felt there were important topics about financial security that would also be beneficial for individuals, couples, and families," said Brian Flood, minister of Discipleship and Administration.

Flood said the library was a natural place to conduct the training since it is a place where people often go to seek similar information.

"We often help customers find books and Internet resources related to financial security," said Library Director Michelle McMorrow Ramsell. "So when we were approached about hosting this valuable and informative series at the library, we were thrilled."

The Finding Financial Security Series will feature local professionals providing information to help individuals, couples, and families prepare for financial security. Topics to be discussed in the three sessions include:

Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Legal Documents and Investments

Mike Warkall, attorney from Fitzpatrick, Zimmerman & Rose and Paul Gorgas, financial advisor from Edward Jones will share information about wills, power of attorneys, and stock investments.

Wednesday, Jan. 30 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Long Term Care and Funeral Planning

Pat Moeller from Moeller Financial Strategies and Mike Stewart from Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory will share information about life insurance, long term care, real estate life estate, and pre-paid funerals.

Wednesday, Feb. 6 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Benefits and Safe-Guarding Files

Julie Smith, licensed social worker from Community Hospice, Debbie Cook from Tuscarawas County Veterans' Services, Julie Smith, and John Beitzel will share information about Medicare and Medicaid, Veterans Services, and securing documents.

There is no charge to attend the series, but space is limited and registration is required.
