Twickenham church of Christ
Maybe you’ve heard the Old Testament story about the guy who was swallowed by a whale – or to be more precise an extremely large fish. It’s one of the most entertaining stories in the Bible. But it isn’t in there because it’s entertaining. It has a point to make and that point is shockingly relevant to what’s going on in our culture these days. It may even be uncomfortably relevant to what’s going on in your life. Join us for Jonah: God’s Stubborn Grace.

Each May, we honor the Twickenham youth who are about to graduate.
The book of Joshua is full of wonderful stories and vexing questions -- questions for which there are no easy answers. It teaches lessons we did not know we needed to learn and challenges us in ways we would prefer to avoid. But it gives us something we need - faith - for a place we have never been - the future.
Is the Bible all it’s cracked up to be? Is it really from God in any significant way or did imaginative people just make up all those stories? Is it true? Is it reliable? Can we trust it? Is the Bible authoritative and, if it is, what does that actually mean?
If God is so good, why is the world so bad?
Would you hold onto your convictions, stand your ground and refuse to compromise even if God did NOT deliver you? That’s what the heroes in this story did. That’s what we can do, too – if we know what they knew. Join us.
