Welcome to TUMC, a Christian community in the Mennonite-Anabaptist “peace church” tradition. We aspire to be a family of faith that welcomes people with diverse backgrounds and stories, worshipping together and supporting one another, while following Christ’s example in working for peace and justice in our urban context.
This Sunday we will be saying our formal farewells to our lead pastor for the past eight years, Marilyn Zehr, with a fabulous potluck lunch and a time of appreciation, including presentations and an open mic time, following the service. Everyone, including guests and visitors, are welcome to join us for lunch as we celebrate Marilyn’s service and leadership to this community! (Marilyn remains with us through June 30.)
Please join us for worship at 11 a.m., with Sunday School for kids and teens starting at 10 a.m. (Children’s choir meets in the sanctuary at 9:45 a.m.) Adults, join us at 10 a.m. for a cup of tea or coffee and conversation at the On the Way Cafe on the second floor.
NOTE: Starting NEXT WEEK (JUNE 25) we will be meeting on a summer schedule, with the service at 10 a.m. There is no Sunday school during the summer.
TUMC is a friendly, intergenerational, multicultural community. We’re always glad to welcome newcomers. Whether you’re new to the city, visiting or simply curious, please feel free to check us out! For more information, check out the About Us tab.

What happens when you learn the land your family has farmed for generations was originally stolen from the indigenous people? This beautiful short film reveals what happened in the Mennonite/Lutheran community of Laird, Saskatchewan. (TUMC has been working for some time on responding to the concerns raised by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.) Watch the teaser below; the full award-winning 32-minute film can be viewed HERE courtesy of Mennonite Central Committee.
