Ministry Description As one respondent to our survey said, “we, Zwingli UCC, are a church that has a feeling of community, a relaxed and welcoming worship style, and deep roots (from the Evangelical and Reformed side), with continued close ties to the United Church of Christ.” While we were not able to hold listening sessions or meet in person in any way to collect people’s thoughts, we did receive a good response from surveys and have thoughtful and hopeful comments from our members. We, as a congregation, hold differing views on theology and mission, but we have strong support for continuing outreach to local communities and beyond. At this time there is a lot of population growth in the near vicinity of our church (located in the crossroad unincorporated town of Paoli) and our vision is to grow our membership and to especially add young families. We’d like to see a full Sunday school, a youth program, multi-generational activities and a new or expanded building in the future. We’d also like to extend our mission to meet more of the need in our area. The person we are seeking (half-time at present) is strong in leadership skills so lay people would be equipped to lead some or all of this growth. We are seeking a pastor who will encourage us to live into our mission statement: “Our church is a place where all people can gather to worship God and Jesus Christ. We share in the life and work of our church. We are committed to learning about Jesus and keeping Him in our daily lives. We open our arms and hearts to those in need within our church congregation, our community, and our world by using our God-given gifts and talents. As we see what is needed and give of ourselves, we will continue to spread the Word of God.”
