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.
Pastor Michele speaks this Sunday at our 11 a.m. worship service as we continue our Lenten theme of “Blessed Hunger, Holy Feast.” Because of March break there’s no Sunday School, On the Way Cafe or Activity Period this week. Join us for this meaningful morning!
A moment in history
Forty years ago this month, Mennonite Central Committee signed Canada’s first ever refugee sponsorship partner agreement with the federal government, opening the path to half of the 60,000 refugees welcomed to Canada following the end of the Vietnam War. (TUMC was among the hundreds of churches who participated in that role, which continues today.) The Toronto Star tells a bit of that remarkable story here.
