Virtual Talk: “What are we here to do?” by Nate Frederick
Jun 15 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

Download Flyer Here

Jesus often said that he came here for a specific reason. The clarity of his mission and purpose was unparalleled. In this lecture, we’re going to aim to “have the same mindset as Christ Jesus” (Phil. 2:5) and get in tune with the Christly mission that brings healing and peace like nothing else can.

This lecture event is co-sponsored by First Church of Christ Scientist, Laguna Niguel, CA and DiscoveryBound Outreach. We hope you all are able to join us for this inspiring talk.

8:30pm/7:30pm/6:30pm/5:30pm

This lecture is intended for 20s/30s, but all are welcome.

Nate Frederick, is a Christian Science practitioner who splits his time between Boston, MA and beautiful Boothbay, Maine. Nate loves traveling and sharing insights into the universal power of God, and how this power can bring about good in our individual lives. As a media producer, Nate created the award-winning “Daily Lift” podcast for The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, the headquarters of the Christian Science church. Nate loves music, being out in nature and baking cakes for his friends. But he would say that his greatest passion is to help people through prayer.
