Lenten Study Launch - March 1
This Lent we will be taking a deeper look at seven statements and stories of Jesus, and their implications. Each year at Stanwich, we conduct church-wide weekly Bible studies during the season of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday (February 26) and leads to Holy Week. All groups study the same material each week If you plan to join one of the groups on this list, please email the leader. We invite you to come alongside us in our Lenten sermon series this season entitled Jesus 101. We also invite you to take a look at other events we host during Holy Week.
We are so excited to have Brian Dembowczyk, Managing Editor of the Gospel Project speaking on Sunday, March 8, at all three services. Brian earned his D.Min. from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and an M.Div. from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He and his wife, Tara, have three kids: Joshua, Hannah, and Caleb. Before joining The Gospel Project, he served in local church ministry for 17 years, primarily in family and discipleship ministry. Brian is the author of three books.
The Gospel Project is the curriculum that our church body utilizes in our children, student, and adult ministry. "The Gospel Project points people of all ages to the good news of the gospel and equip them to live gospel-filled lives individually, in community, and on mission."

6 Kilometers is the average distance people in the developing world walk for water - water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, May 16th, thousands of people from around the globe will walk or run 6K to bring life-changing clean water to communities in need. Each participant's $50 registration fee provides life-changing clean water for one person, so when you participate in the Global 6K you take that distance away from people in need.
Stanwich Church has created a team and hosting a site walk right here at our Greenwich location. Our 6k trail path will expand across all three properties. This is sure to be a fun day for family, friends and for an amazing cause.
