What Is a Life Group?

Ever since the early Church, Christians have gathered together regularly in small groups for worship, friendship, learning and discipleship.  At Stanwich, we continue this tradition.  Our  groups are a great forum for building trusting relationships.  As we aim to know, love and worship God in a personal way, we also strive to know, love and support one another. You do not need to be a Stanwich Church member to join a group - all are welcome.

If you would like to join a group or get more information, please contact the group leader.  You will find the available Life Groups by click the above button "Life Group List".  For privacy, addresses of private homes are not posted online.  

If you are interested in beginning a new Life Group, please contact David Borden, Pastor of Evangelism & Discipleship. 

Life Group Studies This Fall 2020:

We have two church opportuntities to choose from for fall studies, both are nine weeks.  Our first is following our Fall Sermon Series. Join our post sermon discussion by following along the scripture from each Sunday service. You will continue through the gospels in three separate sermon series shown below. If you decide on this opportunity, your Life Group Leader will receive the questions each week from Pastor David post sermon.

Kingdom Life Description:

Often when we think about Kingdom living, we focus on what we are to do. However, the Bible invites us to focus on the King and what he has done. In this September preaching series, we will learn the heart of Jesus, our good King. 

The Road Description:

In this sermon series, we continue to fix our eyes on Jesus as he is presented in the gospels. While he walked the earth, Jesus rescued people from their poverty, both material and spiritual, and often surprised others by taking the form of a servant. From his actions, we learn about our God's true character, who both serves and saves us.

Resurrection Power Description:

After the resurrection, Jesus spent forty days on earth, bringing encouragement, strength, and presence to his followers. Our November preaching series will bring the same to us by focusing four key moments during those days before his ascension to heaven.

The second opportunity is a New Study: Following Christ in an Election Year. This study will be on the Epistles of Titus and 1 Timothy. We will go through a chapter of scripture each week using a booklet to guide you in questions and self reflection. On Wednesday nights via Facebook Live, Pastor David will lead you through the history, language, and context in which Paul wrote these extremely practical letters. Followed by Q & A. 

You do not have to have a Facebook account to join the discussion.  Just visit
