Family Movie Night Tomorrow Night - January 14 at 7 PM

We look forward to seeing many of you at our showing of "The Prince of Egypt". This movie goes hand and hand with our sermon series God Moves, as we see the Israelites leave Egypt.

We will have rugs laid out in the front for those kids who would like to be close to the action. Popcorn for all and chili. It's not too late to sign up. Please email Ashley if you would like to volunteer to bring chili.  Nursery care will be available for ages 2 and under.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone there! Please register you/your family so we can plan well.

New Covenant Cafe
Sunday, January 30

New Covenant Center (Cafe') is a non-profit in Stamford that helps feed families and individuals in need. Thank you Stanwich for such a fast and giving response. Each quarter we help out and provide a pre-made meal. We have filled all slots for salads and desserts. We are now only looking for help with pre-made baked ziti pasta dish (7 out of 12) (recipe).

This is a fun opportunity to do with your family right from your home that helps others in need. Click here to see how you can help or serve this month.

ALPHA Course: Online and In-Person
Starting Monday, January 24 at 7 pm

We are excited to share that we are able to offer both an online and in-person ALPHA opportunity this January. Alpha is a 13-week course that asks for about 1-hour of your time on Monday night. Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. We will discuss topics such as "Who is Jesus, Why and how do we pray, and How God guides us."  

You can sign up for either the online or in-person session (hosted at Stanwich) below. If you have more questions about ALPHA, please email David Borden, our Pastor of Evangelism and Discipleship (

Yes, I'd like to be part of the ONLINE class this January.

Confirmation Classes
Starting Sunday, February 6

The Confirmation program at Stanwich aims to educate, equip, and inspire students to know Christ and make Him known. This program is designed for eighth-grade students, but the class is also open to any seventh graders who feel ready and high school students who may have missed an opportunity for confirmation as a younger student. 
Confirmation is a 12-session program beginning in February during the 10:45 AM Sunday worship service. Students enter the sanctuary with their families at 10:45 AM, then transition to the Student Space downstairs when the children and students are dismissed. Class concludes when the worship service concludes.
There is also a mandatory weekend retreat on March 11-13, enabling the students to build relationships and expand on what they learned in class.

Student Valentine's Dinner Fundraiser
Friday, February 4 at 7 PM + Kid's Ministry 

Make it a date night, or grab a group of friends and enjoy a four-course gourmet dinner. Come out and experience how the students transform Emmaus Hall into a dining venue with elegance, fun, music, and a great ambiance. Proceeds will be used to support the Student Ministry missions trip this summer. Nursery is available for 2 and under.

Kids Ministry (5th - PreK) will also be meeting this evening with a teaching on God's love for us and how we should show that to others, along with a fun craft and snack.

If you are considering coming to Guatemala with us, this is a great way to get involved since we are raising money for the trip.
