MORE THAN BACON – NBC Men’s breakfast

Our next online breakfast event is with -LEN BUTTNER
Could there be more to life as a Christian than you currently experience? Would you like to go deeper in your daily experience of Jesus? You will receive valuable insights on living a vibrant Christian Life that’s full of vitality, powered by the Holy Spirit.
“I think many of us are only living at 30-40% of our potential. God has more for us. I want to help us see this and develop our potential.” (Len Buttner)
As we develop our relationship with God and one another, together we flourish. Think – David and Jonathan, Paul and Barnabas, Paul and Timothy. Each was better for having the other.
Together we can rise to our full potential.So, how about it, men?
Saturday 12 June, 6:55am-9:00am @NBC Lounge

MORE THAN BACON – Men’s Breakfast

MEN – You can be an agent of Godly change.
“Out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.” (Matthew 12:34-35).
Words contain tremendous power – either positive and constructive, or negative and destructive. Each time we speak words, use a particular tone that adds meaning, we speak either life or death to those who hear us.
When we speak God’s intentions and favour over people we can expect God to perform it.
Time: 6:55 am   Venue: NBC Lounge  Cost: Koha (donation)
