VISION Meetings and Prayer Sign Up
The Shepherds at Twickenham have commissioned a Vision Team to prayerfully look into the future and determine how our church can be prepared for ministry in and up to the year 2040. While the team is putting in many hours of research and work, we want to hear from our membership as we plan for the future and determine how to be effective for the kingdom. Previously, you received a letter from the Elders inviting you to attend a meeting. The final meeting is Sunday, September 9th (noon-4:00 pm) to help us vision for the future. We hope that you will plan to be a part of this. If you have questions, please contact the office. So that we can plan adequately, please RSVP by Wednesday, September 5th by email to Adrienne or call the church office at (256) 881-7373.
We want this process to be covered in prayer and certainly solicit your prayers for the entire effort. Because of the importance of prayer in this process, we would like to ensure the times in which the Vision Team is meeting are specifically covered in prayer. If you are willing to pray for this team during their meetings, please click here to sign up for a 15 minute interval to pray. When you sign up for a time-slot, you will be asked for an email address that will be used for the purpose of sending you a reminder notice two days before you chosen time to pray.

New Journey Group Classes began on Sunday, July 1
The Gospel of Luke:
The Gospel of Luke was written to give Christians certainty. That alone makes it a priceless part of Scripture, and a must read for you and me. Join one of our Journey Groups for a study through this Gospel starting July 1st and continuing through September. In October through December, we will take a look at Luke's sequel to Luke, the Book of Acts.

Jesus' Ministry, Crucifixion, and Resurrection:
As a man, Jesus - the Son of God - lived among His creation, among the works of His hands. Imagine the God of creation walking around and talking with the people he made. This is the Gospel message in scripture. It's the proclamation of Jesus' perfect life, His death in our place, and His resurrection - making Jesus the only qualified Savior for sinners. This is why Jesus came to live among us, bringing God's kingdom to earth.
