Sharing the light of Christ

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

Join us this morning as Pieter Niemeyer preaches  at the 11 a.m. Worship Service.  Come early to take part in Sunday school for children & teens (lower floor) at 10 a.m., as well as coffee & discussion for adults at On the Way Cafe (2nd floor) on the topic of how TUMC handles our money, with treasurer Bob Tiessen. Newcomers and guests are always welcome to check us out. Come as you are!

Our sister congregation invites us to a fundraising Taste of El Salvador lunch after the service. Senior youth will be enjoying lunch on the 2nd floor, and junior youth on the lower level.

 

TUMC is a friendly community that invites people of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, generations and abilities to full participation and inclusion. 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.

Working toward reconciliation

As part of our ongoing commitment toward reconciliation with our Indigenous brothers and sisters, a TUMC “Circle For Reconciliation” is now being formed and will begin soon. Circles For Reconciliation is a grassroots organization that facilitates small gatherings of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples in discussion circles. The goal is to establish trusting, meaningful relationships as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action. The group will meet biweekly for ten gatherings, dialoguing with respect on themes chosen by participants. For more information and to sign up, contact Tim S., head of the Mission & Service Committee.
