Community Outreach

Keystone Opportunity Center

This is a community-oriented organization which was developed to support the special needs of North Penn/Indian Valley residents. Keystone is a merger of the former Indian Valley Opportunity Center and Indian Valley Housing Corporation. It serves the housing needs of low-income persons, helping facilitate the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Budget counseling and financial assistance may be provided, as well as self-help education. Keystone also offers many classes, including English-As-A-Second-Language, citizenship, GED, and nutritional classes. The center also provides emergency shelter, food, and clothing, and holds toy and food drives during the holiday seasons. Zwingli helps by providing gifts, food, clothing, and financial aid.

Laurel House

We are collecting new and gently used clothing for the Laurel House thrift shops of Marian's Attic and Laurel's Loft. Laurel House is a comprehensive domestic violence agency offering 24-hour hotline counseling, emergency shelter, transitional housing, medical advocacy, legal advocacy, counaeling and support groups, children's programs, law enforcement collaboration, and community education and prevention programs serving individuals, families and communities throughout Montgomery County. Find further information at Laurel-house.org.

Nursery School

View the Zwingli Nursery School page from this link.

The daily schedule includes approximately one hour of free play when children may choose their own activities from a wide variety that are available such as puzzles, blocks, dolls, books, and learning games. Circle time is a chance to encourage discussion, read stories, and share ideas. Music in the form of singing, tapes, records, rhythm instruments, and dancing is another important part of the curriculum. Through our art activities we expose the children to as many different materials as possible to develop their creativity.

Boy Scout Troop

Zwingli is the sponsoring organization of Boy Scout Troop 401 in Souderton. They meet Mondays at the scout cabin on Wile Avenue and provide leadership and growth opportunities for boys and young men as well as a full schedule of camping and other activities.

Worldwide Outreach

Crop Walk

Zwingli participates along with other area churches in the Indian Valley CROP Walk. Participants in this 10K walk, held in October, secure sponsors for each kilometer walked. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds are returned for local hunger ministries, the rest is passed onto Church World Service for International Hunger relief.

Child Sponsorship

Our Congregation sponsors a child in the Philippines named Ralph. We contribute to his school and living expenses through a collection once a month after the service during the school year. Our Children's Sunday School also corresponds with him regularly. The children enjoy his letters!

One Great Hour of Sharing

Zwingli makes annual offerings to this fund which is used to help victims of natural disasters and other emergencies in the United States and around the world. OGHS also provides development aid and resettlement assistance by helping people help themselves. Together, the giver and receivers develop solutions.

Neighbors in Need

This special mission offering of the UCC supports ministries of justice and compassion thoughout the United States. One–third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry(CAIM). Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries(JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects.
