Worship & Mission Celebration THIS SATURDAY, October 23 at 6 PM
In just two days, our Mission Celebration kicks off with the first ever Stanwich Chili Cook-Off at 6 PM! Bring your appetite to help us taste-test our way through over a dozen chilis and vote for your favorite recipe!
After we crown the champ, we’ll gather outdoors for a special Worship and Mission Celebration at 7 PM, celebrating how God is moving through Stanwich to serve a world in need of hope and healing. Join us for spirited worship and a few inspiring testimonies from mission partners. We can't wait to see you there!

Prayer Walk Stamford Sunday, October 31 at 4 PM
We will be meeting in downtown Stamford in front of Ferguson Library (1 Public Library Plaza, Stamford, CT).

After the Prayer Walk in Stamford at 4 PM, you are invited to join us at 5 PM for a special outreach event at Winfield Coffee in downtown Stamford! Grab a drink and support a local business, meet and interact with neighbors and join us as we sing about the love of Jesus over the city of Stamford.

Have You Met Our Nursery Workers?
We love our Nursery workers here at Stanwich. They are consistent and faithful to love our children and keep watch over them on Sundays. We have so many new families, we thought we would take the time to re-introduce them to you this month!
