TUMC is 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.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus often asks his followers: "What are you looking for?"

How might you respond? Are you looking for answers to questions of social justice, are you looking for a place where you can honestly explore your deepest questions, are you looking for a community where you can worship in song and prayer?

Most of us are spiritually hungry for something, but it's not always easy to say just what. On one occasion, Jesus' followers, not sure how to respond, simply asked: "Teacher, where are you staying?" And he said, "Come and see." John says the disciples "came and saw, and they remained with him the rest of that day."

As you browse this website about our faith community, I invite you to come and see and, if you wish, to remain a while.

Marilyn Zehr, lead pastor

(Note: Paul has a Kickstarter campaign going to fund more delightful Kid Shorts based on biblical stories. Learn more here.)

Who Are The Mennonites? in ASL: Created for hearing-impaired users of American Sign Language, this video is a great primer on what Mennonites are all about.
