1st and 4th Fridays of Each Month
The first and last Friday of every month, a team of 4 to 8 from Stanwich meet the Bridgeport Rescue Mission Mobile truck at Rodner Court in South Norwalk from 5:45 to 7:15 p.m. to assist in the passing out of food and praying over the men, women and children who visit the truck to pick up dinner.

This is an opportunity to partner with World Vision, and Pivot Ministries and go on a trip to West Virginia in order to help some folks with home improvement projects. These homes are in Appalachia and often need repairs that not just for the comfort we enjoy but that can affect their health and well-being.
The cost is $400 and includes meals and accommodations. Contacts Mike O’Connor at ten.enilnotponull@syobgo and Paul Trefry at moc.nsmnull@yrfertluap. It is a time to bond spiritually and in fellowship with others from Stanwich and the amazing men from Pivot.
