Sunday Morning Service Update

As a leadership team, we are always planning a few months ahead. This means that it was early 2021 when we made our plans to worship all summer outdoors. We knew that outdoor worship, even post-pandemic, was the overwhelming favorite result of our worship format survey. Unfortunately, we have experienced some distractingly hot Sunday mornings. 

We have decided to return to indoor worship one month early, in August instead of September, as previously planned. We will remain outdoors in June and July (weather permitting) and return to our beautiful climate-controlled Sanctuary on August 1st.

Mistakes Dad Make
New Episode Available on June 11

Did you know Pastor David and Pastor Nathan have a podcast? It's called "Mistakes Dads Make and How to Redeem Them." It's an honest conversation about fatherhood, friendship, marriage, and faith.

That's a Wrap - Annual Meeting 2021

We are always humbled to look back and see how God moved in the previous year, and we are excited to see where he is taking us and the new opportunities ahead. We want to extend our appreciation for your participation in one of our annual events that make Stanwich Church special. The budget and officer slate was approved. Praise be to the Lord! 

Ministry Opportunity

A member of our Stanwich family, Adam Fairbanks, has been attending our Sunday services for many years. Because Adam has been blind from birth, wonderful Stanwich volunteers have ministered to him by driving him to church on Sunday mornings. Adam is now fully vaccinated and eager to attend our 10 AM outside Sunday services this summer. We would appreciate volunteers to help bring him to church and back. If you are interested in learning more about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Genie Wells – geniewells@gmail.com.

SKY KIDS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We are looking for volunteers to join our Sky Kids 2021 team. Those who have completed 6th grade, parents, grandparents, and anyone interested in shining the light of Jesus to our children all makes great volunteers. Background checks are required. Volunteers can get more information and sign up to join our team at the Sky Kids website

Then swing by Winfield Street Coffee (located at 96 Broad Street, Stamford) to grab a drink or a bite, support a local business, and enjoy a unique outdoor concert in downtown Stamford on Sunday, June 27 at 5 PM, featuring live music led by our amazing worship team.  This is Stanwich reaching out to our local neighbors, saying we are here and want to know you!

Announcement

This last year we have had the pleasure of having Isabel Gonzalez as our Church Administrator. We are thankful and appreciate her work ethic and love for Stanwich Church. At this time, Isabel has decided that she needs to step down from this role and be more at home to enjoy the last few years with her children before they go to college. 

If you or anyone you know may be interested in a full-time position as Church Administrator, we invite you to view the current job description, and if interested, please email Sheila@stanwichchurch.org your cover letter and resume.

Men's Event

Men, it's been too long since we have gathered together for a few hours of conversation, friendships old and new, and word of encouragement.  We hope you will join us outside on the patio on Friday, June 25 at 7 PM at the home of Robert Vann in Greenwich.  We do plan to serve food, so please register for this event so we can get a proper headcount.

Summer Baptism
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.  

We will also offer those who want to rededicate their baptismal vows – a rite of continuation. It is a way of declaring a renewed or 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, please be sure to let Kimberly know at kimberly@stanwichchurch.org. We will have a 30-minute preparation class at 12:30 pm on the day of the baptism at the baptismal site. 

You can find more information regarding baptism on our website stanwichchurch.org/baptism. If you are not being baptized, you are still welcome to join us.  Our faith gets a shot in the arm when we celebrate these events with our church family.  

Click here for more information on ways to give. You can also call Sheila Hyland, our Executive Director at 203-661-4420, ext. 237 for additional information. If you would like to give electronically now, please click the give button below
