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.
We will hold our worship service at Perkasie Park this Sunday, August 24, 2014. Worship will be at 10:30, the regular time for worship at the park, which allows residents to join us! Plan to join us for worship, fellowship, and to share a pot-luck meal together afterwards and enjoy the outdoors. Please call the church office at 215.723.1186 to sign up for the meal.
The park is located on Ninth Street in Perkasie. From Telford, follow Church Road past the Indian Valley Public Library, continue on State Road under Route 309, and turn left onto Bethlehem Pike. This becomes Main Street, Sellersville. Continue as straight as possible through the five points intersection and stay on Main Street. After passing Saint Agnes Church, turn right onto Ninth Street. Perkasie Park is on the left in about 9/10ths mile. Please park on the street and walk into the park if you are able.
The Ministry of Missioners is planning to participate in a potato harvest on September 14th. This is a mission for all ages. We need potato pickers, cleaners, baggers and weighers. IHartHarvest Inc. is a unique ministry outreach that addresses local hunger issues in Berks County, growing and producing free food for neighbors in need. We'll help harvest potatoes and carrots for neighbors finding themselves in need. We will leave for a farm in Hamburg after Sunday School. Please prayerfully consider joining us on this day of service. A signup sheet is on the wall next to the missioners' bulletin board.
We are working with Tanya Weaver from the American Foundation for Children with AIDS to help provide 400 girls aged 10 to 24 with training and reusable sanitary pad kits. Girls in the developing world who know that education is their way out of the cycle of poverty don't drop out of school because they want to, but rather, due to external forces. Lack of sanitary pads is one of the biggest reasons to do so. With this project, we'll help keep the girls in school and they, in turn, will help their communities and families when they are able to have better jobs. A win-win!
Please go to http://goto.gg/f/11117 for more information and to donate today. We are using this link because your donation will be matched by Global Giving and this campaign will end August 31st.
If you know of anyone who might like to be considered to have their house on our tour this year, please contact Laurie Clements, Susie Woodland, Bobbie Ralphs, Darlene Lacertosa, Eleta Hittinger, or Joanne Kramlik. The 2014 tour is Sunday, December 7th!
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.
Your purchase of a GIANT Store or Landis Supermarket gift card from Zwingli church automatically gives the church 5%. Cards are available for purchase Sunday morning or through the church office during the week.
For summer, the church office is generally open 9:00 am until 3:30 pm Monday through Friday and closed daily from 12:30 until 1:00 pm for lunch.
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?
We support the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. Look for the donation container for beverage can tabs on the Missioners' table in the Atrium.
