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

Peter Haresnape will be speaking in our 11 a.m. worship service, on our continuing theme on the work of the Spirit in the book of Acts (read chapters 14 and 15 to get a sneak preview!). This week, it’s a lesson in how the early church worked through one heck of an argument and came out on the side of radical inclusion and (whew!) fewer rules.

Come at 10 a.m. to grab a coffee upstairs at On the Way Cafe and hear Randy Haluza-DeLay speak about his recent delegation to Iraqi Kurdistan with Christian Peacemaker Teams, where CPT walks with Kurdish villagers whose lives are threatened by cross-border bombing campaigns from Iran and Turkey, government corruption, and displacement from war.

Also at 10 a.m., there’s Sunday School for ages nursery through high school on the lower level. Youth will be reflecting on Congregational Faith Stories in the Youth Room. There’s something for everyone at TUMC!

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.


 

Lent at TUMC

Lent at TUMC isn’t about “giving up” things, but about taking the time to reflecting deeply on the meaning of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. During the six Sundays of Lent (March 10-April 14) our worship services will include an opportunity for short responses from people in the congregation: poems, art, music, symbolic objects. Each Sunday will feature a slightly different question to which you may respond. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Pastor Michele or JD Penner. Stay tuned for more information about special services during Holy Week.

Shrove Tuesday Pancakes & Biblical Storytelling

On March 5, come enjoy an old tradition of eating pancakes on the eve of Lent. This is an early evening event for the whole family. Supper starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by a one-hour concert of biblical storytelling at 8 p.m.! Bring a favourite topping if you like (pancakes and syrup will be provided) and invite friends and neighbours to come along! Please RSVP to Pastor Michele so we know how many pancakes to flip. (Sorry, there won’t be boy choristers doing the flipping, but you get the idea.)
