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!

Speed The Light


About Speed the Light

The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of
the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the
"essential transportation and creative communication" equipment for
missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, the
printed word, and equipment for mass evangelism, our missionaries can better
fulfill the Great Commission.
Speed the Light (STL) is the student-initiated, volunteer,
charitable program that provides much-needed equipment to missionaries across
the nation and in over 180 countries around the world. Since its beginning, STL
has raised over $253 million for missionary equipment around the world.
Speed the Light began in 1944 after Ralph Harris, then head of
the National Youth Ministries department, prayed for a way to give A/G students
the opportunity to help missionaries in their work. Now, by providing ministry equipment
to our missionaries, STL is training the young people of America to develop
individual ownership of the Great Commission as they help our missionaries
spread the gospel message to the lost.
Today, Speed the Light is one of the most effective youth
missions ministries in the church world. Assemblies of God students have
accepted a great responsibility to voluntarily sacrifice and raise funds to
purchase the equipment. STL operates with one guiding principle: All assistance
must go to purchase equipment directly related to evangelism
("evangelism" is defined as propagating the gospel and instructing
converts). STL equipment has not been nor is presently given for promotion,
solicitation, or normal administrative functions.
If our missionaries are going to get to where the lost live, it
will be because of Speed the Light. Every missionary in the Assemblies of God
will at some point fly, drive, or float to their destination in transportation
that has been provided to them by our churches and students through Speed the
Light. Airplanes, cars, vans, motorcycles, bicycles, trucks, buses, boats,
horses, camels, donkeys, wheel barrows, etc., if it has wheels or hooves and
can carry a missionary to a country, city, town, village, or under a card board
box where someone is waiting to hear about Jesus, Speed the Light has provided
We give so our missionaries can travel faster, preach clearer, and be
heard louder, in order that that Heaven might be a bigger place…filled with
people from every nationality, color, and tribe who have accepted Him as their

Matthew 28:19-20  -"Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
