Come one, come all! We don’t check your ID at the door. You don’t have to pass a basic Bible knowledge quiz to get in. If you’re interested in learning more about the Bible in an open atmosphere which includes both lecture and discussion, this group is for you. You can sit quietly and listen or join in the conversation. Either way, many guests and new members find this a great entry point into Twickenham.
Topic: Rescuing Jonah!
What comes to mind when you think of the Book of Jonah? Are you seeing a picture of a BIG FISH right now? In this 4-week miniseries we want to rescue the entire Book of Jonah from the BELLY OF THE Old-Testament-story-I'm-familiar-with-but-haven't-really-read-as-an-adult FISH and meditate on it as a complex story aiming to expose the worst tendencies which can form inside us as God's covenant people.
Whether you’re still picking the rice out of your hair or are already driving that minivan you swore you’d never own, navigating family life requires lots of support and encouragement. Classes and discussion start with scripture and always circle around to applications specific to marriage and family. Then, there’s the friendships, understanding and practical help you’ll need when things get tough.
In our fast-paced world, most people do not have any margin in their life. Yet it is imperative that we identify margin, guard its place in our lives, create space to be replenished, and learn to invest it wisely in different seasons. In this four-part course, Steve Stroope, Lead Pastor of Lake Pointe Church, encourages believers to build a life that allows for margin. It is in this space that the Holy Spirit works.
Sometimes, churches can seem like they are exclusively designed for couples or families. This group is different. It is composed of folks who find themselves searching, and on a spiritual level, having to go it alone. When you walk through our door, though, you discover that there are others willing to make that journey with you. If you are looking for a group that is open and honest about life, welcome home.
Topic: I Can Only Imagine
The local church has been charged with the mission of sharing the hope of the gospel, but this mission can be challenging in a relentlessly broken world. How can you restore hope when someone feels rejected, guilty, or broken? Using Bart Millard's, lead singer of MercyMe , story of pain redeemed, brokenness restored, and God glorified, we will explore ways to see ourselves through God's eyes and find healing in his approval, purpose, and eternal hope.
If you are the kind of person who doesn’t mind questioning your own conclusions, confronting your own perspectives and intentionally exposing yourself to diverse opinions, the Sonlight class is for you. Our children are mostly raised and out of the house (mostly), so we enjoy spending time together both in and out of class. Stop by and visit us. You’ll find spirited but respectful discussion. And maybe make some new friends.
Topic: Why Me, Lord?
Diving into the question of why good people suffer from the perspective of Old Testament wisdom literature.
Do you remember where you were when Sputnik circled the planet? How about rotary telephones? Or when you had to get up and walk across the room to change the channel on the TV? Those who attend the Friendship Class remember. But we welcome anyone who wants to study God’s Word in an accepting atmosphere and make rich, meaningful friendships. After all, that’s the name of our group!
Topic: Questions for God
A series of topics for discussions to help us appreciate God more each day.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham
As someone who has been a member of Twickenham since the beginning, there is no place that I would rather be. I appreciate that we have an eldership that bases decisions on biblical principles rather than tradition. There is a broad spectrum of people who come from different backgrounds than those of us who were raised in the church of Christ and I feel that it has been beneficial. I like that Twickenham has been a part of the community instead of isolating ourselves from other denominations.
The many ministry opportunities that members can find to participate in. The uplifting worship services; the praise team is wonderful! The children's programs. I love that we have young families as well as older members worshipping together!
. . . this church has been a HUGE blessing to our family. When we came to Twickenham, I felt like we were spiritually dying on the vine. Since coming to Twickenham, God has had us on an amazing journey that is sometimes hard and sometimes beautiful - but either way I know we are both diving deeper into Him! Yay!
