Sunday, August 1 at 1 PM
We are celebrating an immersion baptism on August 1, Sunday afternoon, at 1 PM. We will celebrate both aspects of the rite – initiation – for those who have not been baptized before and want to declare their heart allegiance outwardly to Jesus. You can find more on our website stanwichchurch.org/baptism.
If you would like to be baptized or rededicate your baptismal vows, contact one of the pastors (203-661-4420). We will have a 30-minute preparation class at 12:30 pm on the day of the baptism at the baptismal site.
If you are not being baptized, you are still welcome to join us at 97 Clapboard Ridge Road, Greenwich. Our faith gets a shot in the arm when we celebrate these events with our church family.
Blood Drive at Stanwich
Monday, August 30, 9 AM to 4:30 PM
Stanwich is hosting a Red Cross blood donation drive in honor of Charles Davis III. The Stanwich community has surrounded little Charles and his family with love, prayers, and acts of kindness, such as providing meals as he undergoes cancer treatment. Donating blood is another way we can support them and others who depend on life-saving blood transfusions. Click here for more information and to sign up!
Monthly Alpha Training
3rd Thursday Each Month at 7 PM
New for Alpha Veterans! If you’ve taken the Alpha course, we’d like to encourage you to get trained to be a helper or leader for a future course. We believe Stanwich is called to be a spiritual resource to our region, and helping with an Alpha Course is a powerful, fun, easy, and effective way for you to get involved. We will offer a 75-minute Zoom-based training session on the third Thursday of each month at 7 pm. Our next session will be on August 19. You can register here.
Hymnal & Bible Repair Bee
Saturday, August 14 at 10 AM
Our Worship Team Leader, Katie Troyer, and her husband, Scott Troyer, our AV Team Leader, invite you to join Leon Reid, our Minister of Music, and Patricia Hallenbeck, our Admin. Assistant and Expert Book Repairer for our first ever Hymnal and Bible Repair Bee!
The term “bee” is another way of saying “a gathering of people for a specific purpose.” Gathering together to help one another is a rich tradition of our collective heritage. We invite you to be part of this community as we repair Bibles and Hymnals that we use each at each Sunday service. Please join us for fun fellowship, light brunch, some hymn singing, and a lot of book-binding glue! Let us come together, Church!
Email Patricia in the church office if you plan to attend.
