This event couldn't happen without the help of our students, so we are in need of volunteers! Please let us know if you are free to help out. There are plenty of jobs from helping out in the kitchen to serving tables and all of them are surprisingly fun. 

If you are considering coming on our missions trip with us, this is a great way to get involved.





When: March 11-13 2022
Where: Lake Champion, NY
Cost: $190 - Scholarships are available upon request


Join us for an incredible and life-changing weekend with other Fairfield County students full of hang-out time, worship, food, outdoor fun, and other surprises!  

Winter Weekend was created through a community of churches from Fairfield County called The Network. It is a county-wide retreat that has an emphasis on teens encountering God and connecting to community. The weekend is designed for students to take time to get away from the stress and pressures of daily life to experience God in worship, honest conversations and fun adventures.  The venue we will be using is Lake Champion in Glen Spey, NY which is a premier 370-acre year-round retreat center located in the foothills of the southern New York Catskill Mountains. Their facilities are nestled amongst towering pines, peaceful streams, and overlook a spectacular 50-acre lake.

When: July 30 - August 6, 2022
Where: Hope of Life, Zacapa, Guatemala
Cost: $2,000 - scholarships available upon request
Are you ready for a week long adventure serving the people of Guatemala, making life-long friendships, and having real encounters with God?!? We certainly are! 

We will be returning to Hope of Life in Guatemala this summer from July 30 to August 6. Hope of Life is an international humanitarian aid organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities in Guatemala to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. They use humanitarian aid efforts to share a practical gospel with those in spiritual and physical need all over Guatemala.

You must be in high school to go on the trip (that includes going into freshman year).  Middle schoolers will be invited to attend a Focus Ministries Camp that runs from August 16th - 22nd, 2022.

Steps to apply:

  1. Pray and talk to God about this trip.
  2. Contact Lauren and Craig to set up a low-pressure interview. This is to make sure we're all on the same page regarding expectations and guidelines. Interviews open up January 4, however you can email us at anytime to set up an interview after that date. 
  3. Turn in a signed covenant that we went over in our interview.
  4. Register online with the link we will send to you after you complete the above steps. This includes a $400 deposit.
  5. You are officially on the trip!

This is all still contingent on the global pandemic. We pray things continue to head in the right direction so we can safely travel to Guatemala with our students.


Student Ministry

Student Ministry

Our goal is to have a program where students feel comfortable and welcomed--all while introducing and pointing them to Jesus.  Stanwich Church is a place where students can simply be themselves, meet new friends, and hear Gospel-centered messages relevant to middle and high school students.



The Stanwich Student Service meets weekly on Sunday mornings during the 9:00AM and 10:45 AM service. 


Confirmation Class

Confirmation Class

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 that they are ready, and to high school students who may have missed an opportunity for confirmation as a younger student.  

Confirmation is a 12-session program that meets during the Sunday morning worship service beginning February 6.
