Vision 2020

Your thoughts and ideas are welcome input to our Vision 2020 project. Email them to!

Church council and ministries have been working since last September to develop core ideas on a new vision statement for Zwingli UCC. It will set a challenging goal toward which the church will strive. It will paint a picture of what we want the church to look like or be known for in the year 2020 — 5 years from now.

Peace and Smiles Boxes

Take advantage of Back to School sales!

The Missioners, Educators, and Adult Electives Committee invite you to participate in an intergenerational mission project later this fall. We'll create Peace and Smiles Boxes to be delivered to area hospitals and other places where children are in need of cheering. Check out The Giving Tree website.

Peace and Smiles box contents

Here's what we'll need for the boxes:

  • box of crayons
  • box of markers
  • small can of play clay
  • pack of colored pencils
  • stickers
  • deck of cards
  • clean recycled cereal boxes (not flattened)

Place donations in the box in the atrium near the Missioners' table. Thanks for your help!

Garden of Health

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.

Click here for more information about Garden of Health.


Chancel Flowers and Worship Bulletins

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.

What is that picture?

Zwingli letter photos

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?

  • Z, closure on door to sanctuary (look up!)
  • W, music folder in choir room
  • I, window frame
  • N, books on a shelf
  • G, leaves on a plant
  • L, space between bricks
  • I, space between chairs in sanctuary

We believe...

  • God loves us unconditionally.
  • We are one family in Christ.
  • We are called to follow Jesus.
  • We are called not to judge, but to accept and forgive others, as we have been accepted and forgiven.
  • We are called to care for, to develop, and to share cheerfully the gifts and talents God has given us.

I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord!"
