Men's Ministry of St. Francis
"For my yoke is easy and my burden light." - Matthew 11:28-30
A journey to pump adrenaline into your faith.
Date: Saturday, August 20th @ 9am
Place: St. Francis Lower Church
The Men's Ministry will start a weekly faith sharing group gathering. To get us off on the right foot, we have asked for assistance from a well-respected men's ministry advocate, Mr. Bob Saraceni. Some highlights of Bob's journey are:
He began his professional career in financial services technology and eventually moved to Human Resources Recruiting.
He has spent the last 15 years involved with men's spirituality, helping to launch and develop men's faith sharing groups at www.mensministries.com
His goals are to scripture and prayer to lived experiences.
This is an informational gathering and opportunity for asking asking questions.
So, let's get started - Jesus will do all the heavy lifting!
