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.
Join us at 11 a.m. for worship. Our special guest this week is Lori Guenther Reesor, who will be talking about the Generosity Project. Come early for Christian Education: Sunday School for kids nursery through high school age begins at 10 a.m., as does On the Way Cafe—join us for a cup of coffee or tea and conversation on the second floor.
A reminder: this is the last week to sign up for the church retreat, June 8-10 at Silver Lake Mennonite Camp, in the beautiful Bruce Peninsula. Signup forms are available as a PDF attached to the weekly announcements, emailed Friday, or at church.
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.
VIdeo of the month
Joji Pantoja, a Canadian/Filipina mission worker whom TUMC helps support through a partnership with Mennonite Church Canada Witness, is the creator of Coffee for Peace. Through facilitating coffee production on the southern island of Mindanao, this unique social enterprise is helping to bring peace between Muslims and Christians, to foster reconciliation between indigenous people and settler populations, to boost incomes and the local economy, and ensure sustainable agriculture in the face of climate change. Here’s a wonderful video about the project produced by the United Nations Development Program!
