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

11 a.m. Worship: In view of new concerns about the Omicron variant and to give our hard-working tech teams a break, Sunday services are currently being conducted online only (Church in the Cloud). Sunday School is also taking place online beginning at 10 a.m. Newcomers and guests are warmly welcomed to join us, wherever you are! To receive Zoom links, please contact MIKE to subscribe to the email announcements and our weekly newsletter, TUMC Connects. (See below for more details.)
 
Any-Time Blue Christmas podcast: The Caring Team has created a Blue Christmas podcast for you to access at a convenient time. Due to music licensing, it is available only through our Spotify TUMC On Air podcast.
 
 
 
CHURCH IN THE CLOUD is open to everyone, far and wide, via the Zoom link available in the emailed announcements/order of service. (Didn’t get those? Contact MIKE before noon Friday.)
 
CHURCH ON THE GROUND at 1774 Queen St. E. is temporarily suspended. When we begin hybrid services again, it will be open to fully vaccinated teens and adults, as well as children. Check in just before the service to record your attendance and be ready to show an usher your vaccination certificate, digitally or on paper. Sunday School is offered online every week and in hybrid format on alternating Sundays, for children nursery age through high school, at 10 a.m. (Check the Calendar for details.) Please dress warmly, as additional ventilation may make our meeting place a little chilly!

Regardless of where you are, join us at 11 a.m. as we worship as one united body, online and/or in our sanctuary. It’s a bold new way to “do” church, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!

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.
