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.
Summer Sundays at 10 am
Beginning June 27, please join us at 10 am, using the new Zoom link found in the e-mailed announcements or Order of Service.
(Didn’t get those? Contact Mikebefore noon on Friday.)
Our Summer Theme is ‘Be at Rest’. We’ll be reading through the Gospel of Mark — often known for its rapid pace and breathless narrative — paying attention to moments of rest.
To embody our theme, Sunday Zoom services will be shortened in July and August, and on holiday weekend Sundays (July 4, August 1, and September 5), you’re invited to participate in ‘TUMC On Air’, an audio experience of rest, contemplation, and worship for you to listen to on your own. You’ll be able to access this anywhere with an internet connection, and download for a time that makes sense to you.
Mark off sacred time and space to close your eyes, light a candle, and join ‘TUMC On Air’.
Meanwhile … TUMC remains the same lively, intergenerational and multicultural community as always, excited to be talking about new opportunities and challenges as we look forward to meeting together in person again soon! We love the new friends we are making and old connections we’re reviving thanks to our online services. You are welcome to join us!
To benefit from spiritual encouragement, community news, and get the weekly Zoom Worship link, ask to receive TUMC Connects by email. Just send us a quick email with ‘sign me up for TUMC Connects’ in the subject line and let us know a little about how you found us. (A bit of information helps keep our online gatherings safe and welcoming.)
TUMC 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, click the About Us tab. You can also follow us on Facebook.
A note of acknowledgment: Our congregation meets in territories of the Haudenosaunee, Wyandot and Michi Saugig Nations. As beneficiaries of a violent history of colonization, we recognize our responsibility to uphold treaty relationships and so seek to be guided by Indigenous truth-tellers toward restitution, restoration, and reconciliation.
