What is Discover Stanwich? It is an opportunity to learn more about Stanwich Church - our beliefs, our ministries, our vision, and mission - to have your questions answered about Stanwich Church and how we understand membership.
We do not assume that your participation in Discover Stanwich means that you will necessarily choose membership. Our intention is to provide you with the information you need to prayerfully consider Stanwich Church as your spiritual home.
When: Saturday, October 12, 5:30 pm
Where: 120 Valley Road, Greenwich
Men will gather to enjoy good food and drink, and even better conversation and friendship. This is a great opportunity to meet men from the church and make connections that you normally could not make on Sunday morning.
This fall we have Pastor David sharing with us on "LIving into the Call of Abundant Life." Parking is on the opposite side of the house on a side street. Please register so we can plan accordingly. We ask that each person bring $15-20 to cover the cost of the evening.

STUDENTS - We all need to be reminded of the capacity for human kindness in even the darkest of times and the triumph of humanity over hate. The broadway show, Come From Away, is set in the week following 9/11 and tells the true story of what transpired when 38 planes were ordered to land unexpectedly in a small town.
We will be meeting at the Greenwich train station at 12:30p. Once in NYC, we will enjoy the show, walk around, and enjoy a meal together.
This cost includes the show and the meal. Students are required to purchase their train tickets separately. Scholarships are available for this event.

Every Sunday is a good opportunity to bring a friend to church. For three Sundays in October, we're going to intentionally welcome people who have never been to a worship service or haven't been in a while. We will have a special sermon series that will include personal testimonies about what it means to be a Christian.
We encourage you to invite a friend, neighbor, or co-worker. Even if only one new person comes to faith through this endeavor, it will be worth all the effort!
When: October 20 after both morning services
Where: 202 Taconic Road, Emmaus Hall
Did you know that Stanwich Church was founded in 1731? Our church is 288 years old, and we are still making an impact here in Connecticut and throughout our world. We invite you to see articles or exhibits showing you the beginnings of Stanwich. Visit us at Emmaus Hall at the Greenwich location on Sunday morning.
We will have historical church records, archival documents, books, maps, and other documents on display. We are happy to share what God can do with just a few people almost 250 years ago who have a heart or God. We are excited to be part of this chapter in the church's life.
When: October 13 at 6pm
Where: Stanwich Church, Stamford location
Attention all youth and families! We will be hosting a prayer and worship night interceding for the next generation!

Confirmation aims to educate, equip, and inspire students to know Christ and make Him known. This program is designed for eighth-grade students, seventh-graders who feel that they are ready, or high schoolers who haven't yet participated.
Confirmation is an 11-session program from October to February, avoiding major holidays and holiday weekends. Each session takes place during the 10:45 am worship service. Students enter the sanctuary with their families at then transition to the student space downstairs after the Children's Sermon. Class concludes when the worship service ends.
If you are interested in registering, or if you have any questions, please contact Lance.
