We are so excited to see you at our first Small Groups of 2021! We are launching our new series, "Into the Wilderness." For the next few weeks, we will be hearing testimonies from our Student Ministry team on wildernesses they have been through and how it has impacted their faith.

Small Groups is also a time where students can safely share what's on their hearts and receive prayer.

Please arrive at 6:30PM at Emmaus Hall. Please arrive wearing a mask. 

All participants must register for Small Groups if you plan on attending in person. Click below to register

When: Sundays at 10:15AM
Where: Zoom

Join us Sunday mornings for our Student Service! This is a time where we can catch up with each other, listen to a talk given by one of the leaders, and split into Life Groups to talk about how today's lesson applies to our lives. Stanwich Student Ministry's curriculum is lined up with the children and adults, so we encourage you all to discuss as a family after the service.


When: January 21, 7:30-8:30PM
Where: Zoom


We are thrilled to partner with We Want More and other Fairfield County student ministries to offer this 4-session series. The series begins on January 21 and concludes after four Thursday evening sessions on February 11.

We are bombarded each day with messages about who and what we should be, act, and look like. It can be exhausting and overwhelming to try and keep up with everyone else!

Join us as we explore what God says about our identity around topics like body image, purity, anxiety and depression, loneliness, performance and more.

Sadly and not surprisingly, our Guatemala Mission's trip to Hope of Life is cancelled for this summer. We were holding on to hope that everything would go back to normal sooner but that just isn't where we are at right now. We are planning on returning in 2021 and are anticipating a wonderful trip. We are trying to think of this year as a sabbath year and will be ready and refreshed when we head back. 

In place of our trip, we will be planning a couple day long service projects where we can serve all together. We do not know exactly what these will look like just yet are excited for the time we will have together in the safest way possible.


Student Ministry

Student Ministry

Our goal is to have a program that makes each student feel comfortable and welcomed--all while introducing them to and pointing them to Jesus. Stanwich Church as a whole 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 1 0AM service.  Currently we are meeting via Zoom and would love for your student to join us.  Click here for the link to join at 10:15AM Sunday mornings 

Student Small Groups meets every other Friday night at 6:30pm. Our goal is to establish an environment where students look forward to coming back and inviting friends. Stanwich students also participate in a variety of outings, retreats, and trips (check out this video of one of our missions trips).

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 beginning in February. We will meet on Zoom on Sunday mornings at 11:30AM. This is a great year to join us and invite other since it will be online!
