no matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here
We welcome children of all ages in our services. "Busy Bags" and children's bulletins are available from the ushers. And for families who desire it, nursery care is available for preschool children during worship services.
We are wheel-chair accessible and air-conditioned.
The purpose of the meeting is to vote on the proposed 2017 church budget and the proposed slate of church council representatives and ministry members who have been nominated to serve by church council.
Church school will follow the meeting.
Meet at Zwingli for a mostly-walking route of caroling. Singers of all ages welcome! Bring a few cookies to share after we return to Zwingli—we'll provide the hot chocolate.

Consider joining this group, which meets to experience and practice diverse ways to pray, to deepen our spiritual lives and strengthen our connection to God. From August to November each month will focus on one type of meditation/prayer.
Our Sunday School curriculum is in a rotation format. This means that our Sunday Schoolers--Squirmy Worms! Faith Finders!--will study one story for 4-5 weeks, learning through art, science, cooking, games and drama activities. Curriculum for each rotation is provided to our teachers via e-mail prior to the rotation start date. Feel free to follow the curriculum to a "T" or use it as a guide. Pinterest is also a great resource. See more and sign up here.
All volunteers working with children under 18 years old are required to obtain the PA Child Abuse History Clearance, the PA Criminal Record Check, and possibly the FBI Criminal Background Check with fingerprinting.

Create a safe place to explore faith and worship, full of life, energy and enthusiasm.
Connect to the world through our local and global commitments, becoming stronger in our faith.
Celebrate all people as God's children, affirming each other's unique gifts.
With God's help, we are united in the Spirit, listening and preparing for God's work — embracing all possibilities.
Zwingli has ongoing collections of these items in our atrium.
The beverage can tabs support Ronald McDonald Houses, helping provide a home-away-from-home for families whose seriously ill children are receiving treatment in nearby hospitals. And the calendars and puzzle books are donated to inmates at Graterford Prison.
Did you know that roughly 25% of the population has either diabetes, heart disease, food allergies or celiac disease? Zwingli will be joining up with the Garden of Health Allergy and Gluten Free Health Food Bank by holding monthly food drives for Keystone clients that have special dietary needs. Look for the box labeled Garden of Health in the coat room. Each month we will focus on a few different products for this special collection, in addition to the regular Keystone collection.

Would you like to sponsor the flowers in the chancel or worship bulletins one Sunday morning? You'll find sponsorship forms on the bulletin board next to the church office.

Adopt a Sunday morning to provide some goodies for our fellowship and coffee time after worship. Look for the signup sheet on the bulletin board near the coffee maker in the lobby.
We support the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. Look for the donation container for beverage can tabs on the Missioners' table in the Atrium.
These pictures were taken by the Zwingli Youth Photography class as a way to understand that we may not always see things as they are...each picture is just a part of an item in Zwingli. Can you tell what the entire picture would be? We may only see a part of a person, item or activity around us. Stepping back and looking at a bigger picture could change our view of situations, people and experiences. At the same time, isn't it nice to see some of the detail in each item and person if you look closely?
