STUDENTS

AWAKEN

April 9, 7-9p

Where: Black Rock Church

 

We all have stories, and many of us face the challenges of pain, anxiety, shame, fear, and loneliness without having hope for our lives. It is because of this we are excited to announce Awaken: A Night of Hope – a gathering of young people who, despite the pain and challenges we all face, believe there is something more to life than what this world offers. We will hear authentic stories from student leaders and an invitation to join in what God is doing around that world in the hearts of those who believe.

We will meet there and all sit together. If you need a ride, please let Lance or Lauren know and we will find one for you.

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 10:45am service (10am in the summer). Stanwich Youth Group meets Wednesday Nights 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, as well as any seventh graders who feel that they are ready.  Confirmation is also open to high school students who may have missed an opportunity for confirmation as a younger student.  

Confirmation is a 9-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 Youth Room downstairs after the Children's sermon.  Class concludes when the worship service concludes.  The class is taught by Pastor Nathan Hart and Student Ministry Director Lance Svendsen.


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