We are so excited to be able to worship and see each other in person again! Here are a few things to note:

Your family must (M U S T) be registered for the outdoor service for your student to join us. You will find the link to register on the church homepage. Registration opens each week on Monday morning.

Students will be dismissed during the service and Lance or Lauren will be visible and will guide all the students to where we will meet. Students must bring their own lawn chair with them. Masks must be worn while we are moving around, however, once we are all seated 6 ft apart, they can be taken off.

SMALL GROUPS

When: October 16, 6:30-9 PM
Where: Pastor Nathan's yard (190 Taconic Rd, Greenwich)

 

We are so excited to continue our Small Groups study. Our fall study is called, "Misquoted," where we will discuss passages that are often misinterpreted or misunderstood and talk about what they actually mean. Small Groups is also a time where students can safely share what's on their hearts and receive prayer.

If you are not yet comfortable attending Small Groups in person, please join us on Zoom at 7PM, where you can still take part in the lesson and discussion. Zoom link below.


Please arrive at 6:30PM and park in the church lot and walk over to the Hart's lawn.  See image below. There will be signage to guide you as well. Please arrive wearing a mask. 

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

OUTDOOR MOVIE AND 

MAKE YOUR  PIZZA NIGHT

When: October 30, 6:30-9 PM
Where: Emmaus Hall / Courtyard


We can't wait to get together and make our own personal pizzas! We were so impressed by the cooking skills demonstrated at the Cook and Serve, we knew we had to see them in action once again. Never made pizza before? Don't worry! It is pretty simple and we will walk you through each step. 

But that's not all! We are going to watch a movie outdoors together while we enjoy the pizza we made. 

Please arrive with a chair and wearing a face mask. We'll see you there :)

All participants must register for this event.

GUATEMALA 2020 UPDATE

 

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.


Sundays

Sundays

The Stanwich Student Service meets weekly on Sunday mornings during the 9AM and 10:45AM service (10am in the summer). Student Small Groups meets every other Friday night at 6:30pm from Sept- May. 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 the Fall that occurs during the 10:45am Sunday worship service.  Students enter the sanctuary with their families at 10:45am, then transition to the Student Space downstairs after the Children's sermon.  Class concludes when the worship service concludes.  The class is taught by Student Ministry Director Lance Svendsen and student ministry leaders.


The Confirmation students are required to attend a 2-night weekend retreat which enables the students to build relationships and to expand on what they learned in class.
