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

Our new stained glass window panels were installed in early April!

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.

Clothing and Food Needs Continue

We continue collecting gently-used clothing, which we take to the Laurel House thrift shops of Marian's Attic and Laurel's Loft. And the needs at Keystone Opportunity food pantry include fresh produce and lots of other items. Check out their list here.

Our Garden of Health support for those with special dietary needs is now part of our regular Keystone collection. Roughly 25% of the population has either diabetes, heart disease, food allergies or celiac disease, and for low-income neighbors eating wisely can be financially difficult. There's ongoing need for gluten-free, sugar-free, and low- or no-sodium foods. Click here for more information about Garden of Health.

Three Great Loves

Three Great Loves

Love of children, love of neighbor, love of creation...
"For the UCC, fused with our Three Great Loves campaign, the love of everything begins with this creation. Its protection is a moral duty calling us to action. This is action born in an awareness of our responsibility to keep this beloved blue ball we call 'earth' healthy enough to sustain and nurture everyone."

– UCC bulletin cover, November 11, 2018

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
