Changes to Online Giving
In an effort to make giving easier, faster and more secure, we are transitioning to a new online giving platform called Pushpay. Starting Tuesday, December 3, 2019, PayPal will no longer be the way Twickenham accepts online donations and payments from the website. With Pushpay, you will also have the ability to give via text message, simply text "twickccgive" to 77977 to get started. If you have questions or concerns, please call Emily (256-881-7373) in the church office.
Ecuador Hacienda of Hope Exposure Trip
Plans are being made for a short trip in January to Ecuador for those who may not be interested in or able to go for a longer work trip. The trip would include spending time at the Hacienda of Hope, the school, and doing several cultural excursions allowing those who attend to gain a first hand look at the ministry and the local area. If you would be interested, contact Savanna Millikan.
We have many groups (internal & external) that use our main facility and the Mercy Building on the northwest corner of our campus. While we are fortunate to have a facility that can accommodate many events from showers and small groups to live stream events, recently we have been unaware of several events taking place in the facility. The office staff needs to understand when people are in the building to coordinate access, prevent scheduling conflicts, provide cleaning services, ensure the building is secured after events, etc. If you need to use a portion of this facility for any event from a small group to a larger gathering, please contact the church office. We can book the event space for you, prevent conflicts and provide any special instructions required. Simply call the office at (256) 881-7373 or email Adrienne.
