ConneXion Groups 

ConneXion groups meet weekly and are designed to help church members better know one another, to learn and grow spiritually, and to work together on a service project chosen by each group.  Dates and times vary. For more information, visit the ConneXion Page of this website.

United Methodist Women (UMW)


The Stanwood UMW is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ. We strive to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and hope to expand concepts of Mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. For more information, visit the United Methodist Women Page of this website.

United Methodist Men (UMM)


United Methodist Men invites you to connect with us as we keep our eye on the central reason for this ministry – to help others grow to a mature faith in God that moves them to action on behalf of others, especially “the least.” This aspect of “disciple making” is the ultimate goal of all that we do in the church.  No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, God will meet you there. For more information, visit the United Methodist Men Page of this website.
