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.

Welcome!

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

This Sunday

You are warmly welcomed to join us for worship at 11 a.m. Christian Education begins at 10 a.m., with adults meeting in the sanctuary and others on the lower level.

 

News:

Don't miss the Toronto Mennonite Festival at Black Creek Pioneer Village, Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. TUMCers will be serving up delicious rosettes (fancy fritters) with homemade ice cream and strawberry sauce as well as contributing home-baked pies to this annual tradition, all proceeds of which go to the peace, relief and development work of Mennonite Central Committee. Enjoy a beautiful (we hope) fall day featuring live music; a quilt auction; other items for sale including homemade jams, cheese, bread, farm produce, maple syrup and apple butter; educational displays and of course great multicultural food to enjoy on the spot. Explore the village, participate in a scavenger hunt, crafts and games, or just hang out with friends, all in the wonderful atmosphere of a 19th-century pioneer village. Volunteers are needed and get free admission!  Sign up at church or contact Ed Heese.

Videos of the Month:

Who is Mennonite World Conference offers a great 3.5-minute overview of the 1.6-million member community of churches of which we are a part.  Exciting news: Next summer, the MWC Assembly will be held in North America for the first time since 1990!  This event, held only every six years, is a fantastic opportunity to meet, mingle with and learn from Anabaptists from around the world, many of them living out the message of Christ in situations of conflict, poverty and challenge. And it's not far away: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Learn more at the MWC website.

What is Love? This touching video models love in action, as expressed by a couple married 50 years.

I Am the Son of a Terrorist: Here's How I Chose Peace. This TED talk reveals the power of choice in deciding how to respond to differences. Despite childhood indoctrination, Zak Ebrahim chose to love rather than hate, accept rather than reject, work for peace instead of promote violence.
