“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’ (Matthew 28:19-20)
Stanwich World Missions seeks to make Christ known locally and globally. We encourage everyone at Stanwich to find their place and engage in missions to make a difference in a hurting world using your time, talents and financial resources to expand God’s Kingdom. We support local, domestic and global ministries and missionaries with opportunities to serve, pray and grow.
Our World Missions vision aligns with the Great Commission. To achieve maximum Kingdom impact, Stanwich Church partners with multiple individuals and organizations that provide needed services and spiritual development in the name of our savior Jesus Christ. These services reach near and far, both culturally and geographically. Our missions partners and services they provide are organized as follows:
Mission Prayer Focus:
This month's mission prayer focus is Last Call Ministries. Last Call Ministries provides quality education rooted in the Christian faith for elementary school students in the Los Sauces community of Guatemala City. We know from God's word that our role as a mission sending and supporting church calls us to pray for those on the front lines of bringing the gospel to the ends of the earth.
Each month we hand out a prayer card to our congregation that highlights one of our supported partners. Know that our prayers as the Body of Christ are powerful and effective! This month we heard from Ingrid about her ministry of soul care and leadership training for ministry leaders and missionaries on the front lines of making Christ known globally.
Here is how you can pray for Last Call Ministries:
• For God’s protection and blessing over the children it serves.
• For the Holy Spirit to fill & sustain all who serve these children: the founder and director Rafi Agrait, teachers, parents and the entire community.
• For extending its Kingdom influence through increased enrollment and
the addition of a middle school.
