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

As we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I today, TUMC will observe Peace Sunday, with Aldred Neufeld as our speaker in the 11 a.m. service. Adults are welcome to grab a coffee and join us at 10 a.m. at On the Way Cafe (2nd floor) as we continue exploring The TUMC Story. Evan Heise will speak from his long experience of work with resettling refugees, a TUMC ministry since the late 1970s!  Sunday School for ages nursery through high school also begins at 10 a.m. on the lower level.

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.

 


 

#ChurchToo

Theatre of the Beat presents this thought-provoking drama at 7 p.m. Nov. 17, right here at TUMC. Artfully depicted through a variety of scenes and relationships, #ChurchToo explores the struggle of wading into the realities of sexual assault and examines the difficulties of speaking out in a community where the topic of sex may be taboo. Follow an array of characters through seven vignettes, each bringing to life stories about hidden trends within our church communities. #ChurchToo illuminates the messy dynamics that accompany the complicated truths of power and sexual abuse. (Note: not for children under 14.)

Congregational Meeting

Members and regular attenders at TUMC are welcome to stick around after worship on Nov. 18 for a fundraising lunch put on by the GERMS (junior youth) and then encouraged to attend our next “business” meeting at 12:30 p.m., where we’ll be discussing the results of the recent Informed Congregations survey and taking a first look at the slate of volunteers in a wide range of church roles we’ll be approving at the annual meeting in the new year. If you’re somewhat new to TUMC, this is a good opportunity to see how we do community discernment! Our senior youth will be guiding games for the junior youth and Venture Club kids during the meeting.

51st annual Carol Sing

Join us on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. for a delightful evening of singing carols, both sacred and secular, in English and other languages. It’s an annual tradition at TUMC on the First Sunday of Advent, usually topped off with an ad hoc rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus. This fun, all-ages event is open to everyone, so bring along friends and neighbours to start the season off right. Followed by warm cider and homemade cookies!
