First Communion Opportunity

Class 10/28 & Service 11/4

During the worship service on Sunday, November 4, there will be an opportunity for anyone, adult or child (7 and older), who have never taken Communion, to do so.

 

Participants will attend an informational class on Sunday, October 28 at 12pm at Stanwich Greenwich Campus.  At the class, one of the pastors will explain the purpose and the meaning behind Communion. On the 4th, all participating children will remain in the sanctuary during the worship service instead of transitioning to the Children's wing to partake of their first Communion.


CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

Children's Ministry at Stanwich Church provides a fun and engaging environment that invites kids to know and experience the love of Jesus. On Sunday mornings in Greenwich, kids begin the service with their parents in the sanctuary. Following the children's sermon, the kids are invited to the children's wing where they participate in age appropriate programs.  Preschoolers and kindergartners are together in one class and 1st graders through 5th graders are together in Kids' Church. Nursery care is provided for children three years old and younger.

 

On Sunday evenings in Stamford, children are dismissed after the Offertory Prayer to join the Children's Ministry leaders downstairs.

 

Children who attend Kids' Church learn about the Bible through the Gospel Project for Kids, which is a three-year chronological walk through the Bible. The children learn that the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story - God's story of redemption. 


ON YOUR FIRST VISIT

Welcome, we are so happy to have you visit with us!  If you are visiting the Greenwich Campus please park and enter the sanctuary doors where a Children's ministry staffer can help you get your children checked in.  We'll ask about allergies and get parent information, then give your child a name tag sticker.  One of our staff members will show you to your child's classroom, where you will pick up your child after the service.   If you are visiting our Stamford Campus, please enter the Revolution Gym with your children for worship.  After the Offertory Prayer, an announcement will be made for dismissal of children to Kids Church.  If you If you have questions before your first visit, contact Ann Roth, Director of Children's Ministries. 

FAMILY COMFORT ROOM

We know sometimes your kids love you so much that they just might prefer to stay in the service with you. We also know sometimes children can get squirmy and feel the need to stretch or tell you something very important many times over.  If that happens we encourage you to visit our family comfort room just out through the back doors that you entered into the sanctuary by. Then turn left and go down the stairs and it is on your left. There you can let them move about freely and play while you enjoy the sermon via TV.


One more thing, if your child changes their mind about going to kids’ church, do not fret!  If they want to join the class please bring to us - just exit by the back doors and an usher will help direct you on how to accomplish that.


We are happy to have you and your family with us on Sunday. If you have any questions please ask any one of the ushers, greeters or kid's check-in volunteers.
