Trunk or Treat

We hope you are making plans to join us for Trunk or Treat! A chili supper will be served at 5:00 pm with Trunk or Treating at 7:00 pm. Don't forget to bring lots of candy to give out, decorate your car and invite your friends for this annual night of fun and fellowship!

We also need your help! If you would be willing to help with greeting, serving chili, or cleaning up at the end of the night, please email Amy Smith.

Men's Retreat

In the movie We Were Soldiers Once, Colonel Hal Moore tells his officers, “Take care of your men. Teach them to take care of each other. ‘Cause when this starts, each other is all we’re gonna have.” Each other isn’t all we have as Christian men – but without our brothers, we are easy prey for a relentless predator. Last year’s men’s retreat was cancelled due to COVID. So that makes getting together this year that much more important.

Second Harvest Is Moving!

Every year, Twickenham feeds hundreds of people a full Thanksgiving meal through our Second Harvest event. We’ve been doing it so long, it’s practically in our congregational DNA. (It’s kind of a big deal.) Last year, we noticed that lots of folks who had signed up, didn’t show up to get their food? Gayla Kidd, the director of the Huntsville Assistance Program, explained that the reason was because there are so many churches and organizations offering food at Thanksgiving. She suggested we move our effort to a time of year when demand for help is high but the supply is low – Easter.

So – Second Harvest is moving. Next Easter, we will fill grocery bags with delicious food and pass them along to our neighbors. It probably won’t be a turkey dinner. And it probably won’t be called Second Harvest.

But that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to help out now. The Huntsville Assistance Program and Huntsville Inner City Learning Center are providing us a list of things they need to stock their shelves for the fall. Sit tight. We’ll let you know what they need soon.

Small Groups Update

We are looking to start a set of small groups in the Fall. If you are interested in hosting or leading a small group this Fall, please email Steve Crigger.

Building Usage

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.
