3- Freedom in Christ

April 25th - May 30th, 2018

Read any of Paul's letters to the churches and you'll usually get half way through before you find instructions on how to behave. First he concentrates on what's already been done; the "riches" we have in Christ (Ephesians 1:18). Because it's not what we do that determines who we are - it's who we are that determines what we do. This is a group that helps the Jesus follower understand who they are in Christ, the nature of the spiritual battle, and how to move on to maturity. Leaders Mary and Jo Jo Bartholomew love to help God's people grow in Christ! They also love to ride motorcycles and laugh a lot!

Small Group Leaders Training Halfmoon

April 29th, 2018

Leading a small group is one of the most exciting and rewarding key volunteer positions in our church. As a small group leader, you will have the privilege of serving a group of people and helping them grow in their relationship with Jesus and other members of the group. But, you don’t need to have a seminary degree, have the ability to memorize hundreds of verses, or even live a perfect life. Rather, God wants to simply use a servant’s heart/attitude combined with a desire to see God’s kingdom furthered through small groups. God uses small groups to change individual lives. They are the ideal vehicle for discipleship where the rubber of biblical truth meets the road of human relationships. In our church’s Discipleship continuum, Small Groups serve as a key catalyst in spiritual growth whether one is Exploring Christ, Beginning in Christ, Close to Christ, or Christ Centered. Come join Grace Halfmoon’s small group leader training where we will equip you to lead by teaching on the following topics:

Small Group Culture at Halfmoon
Preparing for Group Meetings
Leading Discussions
Handling Challenging Group Dynamics
Welcoming New Members
Small Group Leader Development

Spring Women's Evening Bible Study (WEBS)

May 1st - May 29th, 2018

We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness.

Come ready to participate in group discussion! Workbooks will be available for purchase.

Please note that this special Spring class is on Tuesdays and in the Student Center, not on Wednesdays in the sanctuary. Additionally, there is no childcare or AWANA for this Spring class.

Painting with Twist Women's Community Event - Greenbush location

May 4th, 2018

$24

This Spring we are organizing a women's event for friends, neighbors and co-workers who don't go to church. It will be an evening of painting fun art, not fine art. Enjoy some mocktails and step-by-step instruction with an experienced and enthusiastic local artist.

This is not an evangelistic event, meaning we will not be sharing the gospel, inviting people to say a prayer, etc. This is an opportunity for your unchurched friends to be in our church building having fun, getting to know other Jesus followers, hearing a little about the church and why we do what we do and creating a lasting memory.

This will be happening at our Grace Greenbush location on the 1st floor in our Lobby/Sanctuary areas. It will be decorated in a festive theme appropriate for this community event.
