Garywood is a friendly and casual church that is filled with loving singles, families, children, teens, and adults of every age. Garywood revolves around Jesus and strives to help lives (no matter where you are) become strong in faith, alive with hope and to love like Jesus. We are passionate in our worship and make sure God's Word is communicated in a way that is fun and applicable to daily living!











Garywood is located at 2730 Allison Bonnett Memorial Drive, Hueytown, Alabama 35023 


We meet on Sundays at 9:15 am for community groups and then at 10:30 am for our worship service. Our Wednesday Nights begin at 6:30 pm and we have something for all ages. There are community groups for the adults, the teens meet upstairs an the youth room and there are classes for the children as well as nursery for the infants and toddlers. 




Garywood is a multicultural, multigenerational church. We believe that our worship service should reflect that culture. The goal of our weekly worship time is to equip and prepare the believer for the week that is ahead as well as challenge them to grow in their daily walk with the Lord. We exist not only for the believer but also for those that have yet to accept Christ as their Savior. Therefore, our time of worship is geared to create an environment where the nonbeliever will feel the love of Jesus and respond to His love. 




At Garywood, we believe that children should be given an opportunity to experience the love of Christ and grow in their relationship with Him. Whether your child is an infant or elementary age, they will find an environment that is conducive to their specific age. The nursery is filled with qualified individuals that love children and understand the needs of infants and toddlers. Preschool age children can learn and grow in Safari Kids. Elementary age kids have fun growing and learning through a variety of games, object lessons and a time of worship. At Garywood, we value ALL ages!
