JUNE 30TH AT 6 PM - Prayer and Worship Night next Sunday evening at the Stamford location (484 Pacific Street, Stamford - upper room). The theme for this month’s Prayer and Worship service is Healing. Join us as we worship Jesus as our Healer and seek Him for healing in our hearts, minds, and bodies. We are excited for a night where we lift one another in prayer in a loving community.
This summers Prayer and Worship Nights are at 6 pm on June 30, July 28 and August 25 at our Stamford location at 579 Pacific Street.
Stanwich has three different ways that you can be connected outside the church weekly this summer. We have opportunities for walks on Monday evenings. If you want to be entertained with movies or a trivia challenge, we have that or an opportunity for a jog or running with friends as well all on Wednesday evenings. For details and locations, click above to go to our website.
We will be performing an immersion baptism on July 21st at 1:00 pm. We will celebrate both aspects of the rite. Initiation: for those who have not yet been baptized and want to declare outwardly their heart’s allegiance to Jesus. Rite of Continuation: for those who wish to rededicate their baptismal vows as a way of renewing or making a fresh start, much like the purification baths of the God-seekers before Jesus. If you would like to be baptized or rededicate your baptismal vows, contact Kimberly in the church office. If you are not being baptized, you are still welcome to join us.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 @ 7 PM - Our culture, especially Fairfield County, is suffering from a loneliness epidemic. Have you ever been in a group of people and felt alone and unconnected? Being lost in the middle of a sea of people is not what God intended for his people. This event is our response to help foster connection and community. We will have light apps & beverages along with a short talk from Pastor Heather and conversation.
The cost for this event is $20 if you require financial assistance or have questions about the event, please contact Kimberly O'Hara in the church office.

Stanwich is organizing a group of volunteers to serve on the childcare team at YoungLives Camp in beautiful Lake Champion, New York on August 2-6. Men, women, and teens are welcome to help on this close-to-home mission trip.
