Encounters with the Living God - Room Fellowship Hall
Facilitated by Steve Crigger & Todd White
The Bible is filled with a cast of characters who were lost, ordinary people who stumbled and struggled. These are hopeless, hapless and hurting faces that fill scripture. These are faces we see daily. In this series, we will explore several of these stories from the New Testament, read an accompanying story from author Max Lucado, and have a guided discussion. We will explore how Jesus and his followers encountered people 2,000 years ago so we can better understand how to encounter people today and in the future.
UNCLASS Women’s Devotional Group - Room Adult Education Lobby
Facilitated by Sheri Crigger
Need time to unwind in the midst of a busy week? Life tends to be incredibly tiring, and there just isn’t time to rest or spend with others to share things going on in your day. Join us as we discuss life over a cup of coffee in the Fellowship Hall. We'll explore a different topic each week - ideas inspired by books, magazine articles, and blogs on a variety of practical topics. We'll have time to share thoughts and pray with the group in a round-table format.
The purpose of this class is to cultivate the work of the Spirit in our lives and to walk deeper in the Spirit. This class is a continuation of our search for a deeper life in the Holy Spirit that brings glory to God. It is not all formal teaching but more an emphasis of experiencing and being led by the Spirit.
The Twickenham Women's Ministry will be offering a Revelation Wellness fitness class. This is like no other fitness class you have attended. Yes, we will work out, but it is about so much more than that. It is about faith THEN fitness. It is about gaining freedom in your original design as God created you to be. It is about breaking the chains that so many of us have to the number on the scale, the reflection in the mirror and our value being based on outward factors. The workouts consist of cardio and strength training. All levels of fitness are welcome, as we will offer modifications to take it down a notch or make it more difficult. We will build a community of encouraging and lifting up. Please bring a yoga mat or towel to use. Please email Traci if you plan to participate.
Description: This class is designed to provide support to family members who have a loved one struggling with an addiction. All family members suffer when addiction has consumed one. We are committed to listening, to sharing experiences, and to discovering new ways of coping and better understanding each other. We recognize our loving God as the mighty healer, and we pray for His grace and mercy on all of us as we walk with each other on this journey.
Each Wednesday class includes Welcome, Discussion with Take-Away (10-20 minutes), Open Sharing.
Topics: Handling our Grief (Loss, Denial, Anger, Why Did This Happen, Feeling Alone, Hope, Forgiveness), Love Based Thinking vs Fear Based Thinking, Who's in Control, Acceptance vs Judgment, Effective vs Ineffective Communication, Guilt/Manipulation, Choices & Boundaries
We will have an Easter Chorus this year that will be a significant part of our Easter Worship on April 21. During Wednesday nights leading up to that event, we will practice the songs that will be sung during worship.
Why Our Members Chose Twickenham
Although we were coming from a more conservative background, we quickly noticed that there was an openness and sense of welcoming that made us feel very at ease. We embrace fully what seems to be an environment of healing for the broken. We believe in moving from maintenance to mission. We have been impressed by the engaged nature of the shepherds, staff and membership.
I want to learn more about God’s Word and hold Him close in my heart. Twickenham seems to be able to guide me by offering similar perspectives to which I can relate as well as unique views that open my mind.
I was very impressed with the love, compassion and how sincere the worship is.
