Zwingli United Church of Christ of Mt. Vernon
To Welcome – To Wonder – To Worship
We are a small church with a large heart where the Scriptures are read carefully with eyes wide open to the world. Our goal, following Jesus, is to be as generous in our welcome as he was, breaking down every barrier that divides neighbor from neighbor.
Christmas Eve Service
December 24, 2022 7:00 PM The Christmas Eve service is always a special time to hear the story of Jesus' birth and sing familiar carols. There will be no worship on Sunday, December 25, 2022.
The Blessing Song
We love music but there isn't always time for scheduled practices. Surprise Choir gives us an opportunity to have fun with music and add something special to worship.
Gathering around a table and sharing food as well as our lives with each other is very important. We celebrate communion each week and we share table fellowship monthly. Our congregation is sensitive to dietary issues (our communion bread is gluten free) and we have the best cooks!
Our First Community Garden! Summer 2022. We care about creation and want to be good stewards of the land we have. We also want to be good neighbors and offer food to those who would benefit. The garden includes a sitting area for quiet reflection and community campfires.
