What Is a Life Group?

Ever since the early Church, Christians have gathered together regularly in small groups for worship, friendship, learning and discipleship.  At Stanwich, we continue this tradition.  Our  groups are a great forum for building trusting relationships.  As we aim to know, love and worship God in a personal way, we also strive to know, love and support one another. You do not need to be a Stanwich Church member to join a group - all are welcome.

If you would like to join a group or get more information, please contact the group leader.  For privacy, addresses of private homes are not posted online.  

If you are interested in beginning a new life group, please contact David Borden, Pastor of Evangelism & Discipleship. 

Lenten Study 

In the Christian tradition, Lent is the period from Ash Wednesday to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer (through prayer, repentance, almsgiving and self-denial) for the commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus.


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 life groups study the same material each week. This year we have chosen the sermon series entitled  Jesus is called many things in the New Testament, from the New Adam to the Light of the World. Each proclamation reveals unique truths about him. This Lent we will be taking a deeper look at seven statements and stories of Jesus, and their implications. If you plan to join one of the groups on this list, please email the leader. We also invite you to take a look at other events we host during Holy Week.
