Twickenham's 40th Anniversary
On April 21, 2019, we celebrated Twickenham’s 40th Anniversary. Here are some milestones in our history:
- The Twickenham congregation started on April 30th 1979 and its first worship service was May 6, 1979.
- Bob Anderson, the first minister, preached his first sermon for Twickenham on May 27, 1979
- The first Elders were: Frank Dark, Guy Nerren, David Shipman, Harold Sparks and Delbert Williams
- Early on, the members worshiped in a room at the Mall, the Raymond Jones Armory facility, the United Auto workers facility, Randolph School and finally moved into our current building at 7500 Whitesburg Drive in 1982.
- In 1996-1997, the Adult Education, Youth Wing and Gymnasium were added. In 2009-2010, there was a major remodel of the auditorium, including the replacement of the original stained-glass windows.
