After dinner there will be classes starting at 6:30pm. We have many classes to choose from. Meet the teachers and find out what they are offering:
Sustainable Christian Living
Pati Robison will be facilitating this class called, Sustainable Christian Living: simple practices
that allow us to walk with God in a way that can be lived out for the rest of your life.
Pati and her husband Allan of 35 years, have 5 children who should all be adults by now. Pati has taught
homeschool science classes for over 25 years. Running, gardening, and making schedules (which her kids
claim she never keeps) occupy much of her free time. She and Allan enjoy playing board games, hanging
out with friends from small group, and traveling to observe their children’s sometimes amusing attempts at
adulting. Pati is passionate about finding creative ways to help others connect with Jesus in their very real
and very busy lives.
The Book of Mark
Randy Larson will be teaching this class on the book of Mark.
Randy and his wife Pat retired in 2015 from 50 years of ministry. The first 20 years were spent working at Teen
Challenge, a Christian drug and alcohol recovery program. The last 30 years were spent in church ministry
with 19 of those years as the senior pastor of The Vineyard Church in Rockville Centre Long Island. When
they retired, they moved to Clifton Park to be near their daughter, son-in-law, and three grandsons. This
November they will celebrate 51 years of marriage. Their passion is to encourage people to do the works and
speak the words of Jesus, all while making disciples who will make disciples that will also make more disciples.
Financial Peace University (FPU)
Rhiannon Antico will be facilitating the Financial Peace University video series.
Rhiannon and her husband Matthew have been attending Grace Fellowship since 2012. The Anticos and their
furry family live in Troy, NY, a community to which they feel truly blessed to be a part. Rhiannon first took
Financial Peace University at Grace Latham in January 2017. For the Anticos FPU changed the trajectory of
their financial life. FPU taught them how to manage money using the baby steps to financial freedom that
were inspired by the Book of Proverbs. Now debt-free and building an emergency savings fund, it has now
become a personal mission of Rhiannon’s to tell anyone and everyone that will listen, about the baby steps
and that it is possible to live life without debt.
The Armor of God
Donna Walsh will be facilitating the video series by Priscilla Shirer.
Donna and her husband John of 30 years, have 2 grown sons and have attended Grace for the past 8 years.
Her nursing career has landed her at Albany Med Ed for the last 29 years. Donna is active with running,
kayaking, hiking, biking, and camping—basically anything outdoors. Since early on in her faith journey,
Donna has participated in countless bible studies. She has come to understand that the fellowship with other
believers, studying and discussing the Word of God, has had a huge impact on her spiritual growth. Donna
has experienced the power of prayer and is passionate about the power of the Word of God, its promises, its
instructions, and the victory that is ours when we take hold of it.
Every Man a Warrior
Matt Willson will be facilitating this men’s group.
Matt has been married for 21 years to his wife Diane and is a father of two daughters Chloe (18) and Olivia
(14). They reside in Niskayuna. Over the past 17 years as members of Grace, Matt has lead and facilitated many
small groups with and without his wife Diane. Matt was introduced to Every Man A Warrior 6 years ago and has
been facilitating groups ever since. The most fulfilling part of Every Man a Warrior is seeing how much God
changes men through the material, accountability, and camaraderie that is developed throughout the group
time. As a man, if your sick of a “status quo” relationship with Jesus and want some real meat and potatoes
that will change your life and make you a warrior for Christ, then come to Every Man a Warrior
We would love it if you came to dinner with us.
