December at Stanwich Church ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS RIGHT HERE

Inspirica Online Wishes Program

Donate Now - December 12

For families struggling to make ends meet, the holiday season can be difficult. We are partnering with Inspirica's Holiday Wishes program to spread the holiday cheer to children in need across Fairfield County.

You can purchase gifts for these children from the Amazon Wish and the gifts will be delivered directly to Inspirica. Consider donating one toy and one educational gift (such as a book, puzzle or musical instrument) by Dec. 12. Please join us in making these families' dreams of a joyful holiday season come true!

Service of Remembrance & Hope

Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 7pm, Online (Facebook, YouTube and website)

Have you experienced a loss? Whether it is grief from a divorce, losing a job, or the death of a loved one, loss can be particularly challenging at this time of year. Join us as we recall God's gift of hope that can lead to praise, even in a time of sadness. This invitation is extended to your family and friend.

We encourage you to join us for our service on our website and social media platforms.

Art & Advent: Waiting for Hope

Wednesdays, starting Dec. 2 at 12pm via Zoom

Three-Week Study:

Join us for three Advent Wednesdays at 12pm via Zoom. Heather Wright will lead a discussion on Scripture and related artwork.

Advent Meditations

Two Thursdays: December 10 & 17 at 4pm, Greenwich

Please join Sue Song, piano; and Leon Reid, organ in the sanctuary for an hour of contemplative Advent-themed instrumental music. You are invited to pray, read your Bible, and/or listen as the music is played. Seating is limited; advance registration is required.

Christmas Carol Hymn Sing

Sunday, December 6 after the morning service, Greenwich

We encourage and invite you to come out to the sanctuary for our Christmas Carol Hymn Sing. Our time together will begin after our morning service. We will "sing to the Lord" (Psalm 95:1) with hymns that are in our church's hymnal and some of your Christmas favorites as well.

Christmas Eve Services
