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.


This Sunday

This Sunday we’re embarking on a journey through a fascinating book of the Bible: Acts, a chronicle of the early church that’s full of drama, arguments, wonders, culture clashes, triumphs, dangers, crises and opportunities … maybe not so different from today’s church? Pastor Michele speaks in the 11 a.m. worship service. (Sunday School resumes today at 10 a.m., along with On The Way cafe, where adults can grab a cup of coffee and join in a discussion on Acts with John Epp leading!)

TUMC is a friendly community that welcomes people of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, generations and abilities. We are wheelchair-accessible and offer large-print hymnals and hearing assistance devices. 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. You can also follow us on Facebook for regular updates.


 

Annual General Meeting

Whether you’re relatively new to TUMC or a longstanding member, you won’t want to miss this year’s Annual General Meeting on Feb. 9, your chance to learn about and provide input on just about everything that goes on behind the scenes, from how we spend our money to how we make important decisions. Note: in a break from tradition, there won’t be a spaghetti supper this year. The meeting starts at 2 p.m. Saturday and will be over early enough to allow for dinner plans (maybe with other TUMC folk?) or other evening activities. You don’t need to be an official member to take part in small and large group discussions and be involved in our consensus-based decision process!

Cookies, Crokinole & More!

Did you get a new board game for Christmas? Is the last of your Christmas baking still in the freezer? Both are welcome at Cookies, Crokinole and More, after the service on Jan. 27. Banish the winter blues! Bring finger-foods and cookies to share for lunch, followed by a rousing intergenerational afternoon of fun playing crokinole and table games!

Shrove Tuesday Pancakes & Biblical Storytelling

On March 5, come enjoy an old tradition of eating pancakes on the eve of Lent. This is an early evening event for the whole family. Supper starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by a one-hour concert of biblical storytelling at 8 p.m.! Bring a favourite topping if you like (pancakes and syrup will be provided) and invite friends and neighbours to come along! Please RSVP to Pastor Michele so we know how many pancakes to flip. (Sorry, there won’t be boy choristers doing the flipping, but you get the idea.)
