"We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men." (2 Corinthians 8:20-21)
Scripture requires a complete and thorough accounting for gifts given in service to the Lord. The leadership of Stanwich Church fully recognizes our responsibility for proper stewardship of church resources. Integral to this stewardship process is full and open transparency regarding budgeting and investment of your gifts in Kingdom growth as we strive "To Know Christ and Make Him Known."
To meet the goal of transparency and accountability, several financial reports are available for your review upon request. The current year budget for Stanwich Church is presented in the "Stanwich Congregational Church Stewardship 2018-2019" document. The budget highlights the ministry priorities established by the congregation and the planned spending to achieve the agreed upon ministry goals. The financial statements for the last fiscal year along with the external auditors are available here.
