Watch/Listen to Past Services

Source of Gratitude
Daniel used to stop by my office for a cookie. Every time I gave him one, his father, Jose, issued the same command: “Daniel – tell the man thank you.” Why? For the same reason God commands us to be grateful. In this special service, we’ll focus on why we can be grateful. No matter what.
The Science of Gratitude
We live in an interesting town. Faith is such a deeply held cultural value here that many of the best restaurants are closed on Sunday – and I’m not just talking about that famous chicken sandwich joint. On the other hand, the town was built on science and technology. Its nickname is Rocket City. Lots of people think science and faith can’t have a decent conversation. Not true. Science and scripture agree on more than you might think. Especially when it comes to gratitude.
No Matter What
Sisters who thanked God for a flea infestation? A young wife and mother who lives gratefully even though she has cancer? A dying man who spends his final days full of joy? How do these people do it? Join us for an answer that just might change everything.
Happiness Doubled by Wonder
It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well. But when your health fails or your marriage melts or your job vanishes, what’s there to be grateful for? In this message, we take a look at two ancient words to uncover the secrets to being thankful no matter what.
DIY Church
Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects are hot these days. You go on YouTube and find step-by-step instructions for everything from home repair to auto maintenance. There is a certain satisfaction when you finish a job yourself. But when it comes to matters of the soul, DIY is not recommended. In fact, God had some pretty strong words for a church that tried it.
The Open Door
Ever had a door slammed in your face? I mean a literal door slammed in your literal face. If not, I bet you’ve achieved the metaphorical equivalent. Here’s some great news: Jesus is not a door slammer – he’s the ultimate door opener.
Close the Gap
Having a great reputation is golden. Corporations pay millions for reputation management. But what if there’s a gap between who people think you are and who you really are?
Wearing Jesus Out
Lots of people treat Christianity like it’s an outfit you hang in your closet six days a week, then take out and wear on Sunday. It doesn’t work that way. Jesus is something you put on and wear out there in the world every day.
Resist
If someone put a gun to your head and said, “If you want to live, call Jesus a liar,” what would you do? Such personally apocalyptic scenarios are thankfully rare in the west. But in some parts of the world, average people have found the courage to reach deep into their faith and hold on even at the cost of their lives. I actually think most of us would surprise ourselves were we to face such a moment. What may be harder is to resist the little compromises we face every day.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

First visit several years ago was confusing. First visit this summer, I was impressed with the service and the friendliness of the people. I was impressed with the focus on community. The openness, the understanding that the church is part of the world and local community.

I have always felt loved here. No one has ever judged me or made me feel less during any of my trials.

I consider the hearts of the people at Twickenham to be one of the greatest strengths. I have seen people quietly serve in so many ways and walk out life together. I also believe that the resources of the congregation can be a huge strength. Together, there is such a huge opportunity for ministry.
