Pastoral Welcome

Rev. Lori Powell

Welcome to Zwingli United Church of Christ in Mount Vernon. We are glad you have found our website and are looking at our church. I began my pastorate here October 12th, 2021. I was attracted to the mission of the church, the idea that a small church could have a big heart, and the wonderfully friendly members that make up this faith community. Teamwork is a value and when a volunteer is needed several people respond!

People come to worship with open hearts and casual clothes. Because we are still dealing with Covid we sing seated to make our gathering as safe as possible. Local and state guidelines are followed to make sure we are protecting the most vulnerable members in the community.

This congregation enjoys eating together. Potlucks and coffee fellowship are filled with energy. We value good stewardship of the earth! It’s the only church I know where vegetable dishes are “snacked on” in addition to sweet treats.

We love visitors! If you are interested in learning more about this church, come to worship! We meet at 10:15 in the sanctuary or on Facebook Live.

Pastor Lori

Monday is my day off. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I have office hours from 9:30 to 12:30. Friday I usually work from home. The best way to meet with me is by appointment as I also visit and attend off-site meetings.
