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 during the 9a and 10:45a 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.
