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

At Zwingli United Church of Christ, we promise to engage and nurture Christ's light in all of God's people, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity, race or ethnic background, social status, soul injury, religious beliefs, age, and physical, mental, or addiction challenges.

We aspire to be a counterweight to exclusion and discrimination. We choose to purposefully welcome and include all people in every aspect of our church family including worship, fellowship, and leadership, lay and ordained, and will meet you where you are on life's journey to share God's love with you. It is our commitment that all members should feel and be safe, as we express God's universal and unconditional love in our church, community and daily lives.



We are worshipping in person in our sanctuary, Sundays at 9 am, and also live-streaming worship on Facebook at 8:45 am. We post our service on YouTube early in the week.

Masking is currently optional.

We welcome children of all ages in our services. "Busy Bags" 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.

Regular office hours are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 am to 3:30 pm Friday. Closed 12-1 daily.

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
  • I, space between chairs in sanctuary

...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
