Working for a just & peaceful world

Learning together from scripture

Growing in faith

Nurturing kids & teens

Building a sharing community

Welcome to TUMC, 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

The second worship service in our Epiphany series on “Gifts For Another Way” begins at 11 a.m. with Pastor Michele Rizoli preaching. Christian Education for ages from nursery through high school resumes this week at 10 a.m. Adults, come at 10 as well to the second-floor On the Way Cafe. Coffee and conversation will focus on “Trajectories and Kairos Moments” that have emerged during the “Excavating TUMC’s Narrative” series. Visitors and guests are always welcome!

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.

 


VIdeo of the month

Mennonite Central Committee isn’t a church bureaucracy. It’s a relief, development and peacebuilding organization that extends our Anabaptist ethic of love, peace and service around the world. Here’s a little video that explains it all!

Cookies and Crokinole

Save the date! On Jan. 28, you’re invited to a fun Sunday afternoon party featuring, you guessed it, cookies and crokinole. Banish those dead-of-winter blues by hanging out after worship for this intergenerational event brought to you by the Congregational Life Committee!

Soup & Sophia

Our next Soup & Sophia (a TUMC tradition of gathering wisdom over a simple lunch) will be held Jan. 21. Stay after the service to enjoy a bowl of soup and a hearty discussion on the subject of Accessibility. More details to come.

Eat, Pray, Gov

It’s almost that time again: TUMC’s Annual General Meeting, on Saturday, Feb. 10. It’s the one day a year that governs the rest. All the planning comes together, decisions are made, money apportioned, and people blessed in new and ongoing roles for the rest of the year. In between, we eat a lot (spaghetti! served with flair by our ever-creative high schoolers!), pray a bit, and govern ourselves according to the rules of consensus decision-making. All regular attenders are welcome to participate; you need not be an official member to have a voice. Starts at 4 p.m.
