    Sunday School Teachers Needed!

    teachers needed

    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.

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.

    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!"

    -Psalm 122:1
