God is Still Speaking
Never place a period
where God has placed
a comma.

Worship with us on Sunday mornings

350 Wile Avenue, Souderton



Coronavirus Information

We live-stream worship from our sanctuary on Facebook each Sunday morning at 8:45 am and post our service on YouTube early in the week.

Our Zwingli ministry thrives as we continue to limit use of our building during the Coronavirus Pandemic. We provide multiple opportunities throughout the week to follow Facebook live events and zoom meetings/fellowship to continue to feel connected and to grow in our faith. Details follow.


Let us worship together.

Live-streaming on Facebook, Sundays starting 8:45 am:

Stained Glass

Our stained glass window panels were installed in early April, 2019! As we experience this beauty in our sanctuary, may we be reminded in new ways of God's presence with us and the beauty of God's creation all around us. Thanks to all those who made this possible, especially creative craftsman Mark Beard.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. Thanks to Jonathan Widgins and Pastor Butch, our Stephen Leaders, we have a trained group of Stephen Ministers. Now it is important for all of us to understand how this ministry will best benefit our congregation and community.

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

...store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

-Matthew 6:20-21



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!"

-Psalm 122:1
