Summer Psalms -- full preaching schedule for FUMC

This summer we're doing a 'pulpit exchange' with Sherbrooke Church, which means we'll be hearing from James Wittenberg, Tim Froese, and Joon Park from Sherbrooke Mennonite (just down the road from us), as well as our regular preachers Lydia and Greg. All will be preaching on the Psalms -- the songbook of the bible! Here's what the schedule looks like:

July 3rd: Joint Service at Sherbrooke, Tim Froese, Ps. 1
July 10th: Joon Park, Ps. 23
July 17th: Lydia, Ps. 19
July 24th: Greg, Ps. 133?
July 31: Lydia, Ps. 88
Aug 7: James, Ps. 13
Aug 14: Lydia, Ps. 126,
Aug 21: James, Ps. 103
Aug 28: Greg, TBD

FUMC Pastoral Search

With our current Associate Pastor Greg Thiessen leaving this summer, we have a job opening for a part-time (.5 FTE) pastor. Please click on the '1 attachment' link below to see the full job ad, and pass it on to those who are interested/qualified. May God guide us in our search!

Refugees Arriving soon!

Our long-awaited Eritrean refugees will be arriving very soon, and we're very excited! Please pray for our refugee sponsorship team as they continue the search for permanent housing, prepare to meet these men at the airport, and help them adjust to their new life in Canada. Also, pray for these three men, about to fly halfway around the world to escape poverty, oppression, and danger. May God give them peace and courage in their new life!

(if you would like to help our refugee sponsorship efforts in any way, or have Vancouver-area connections to the Eritrean community, please let the church office know and they will pass your information on to our sponsorship team)

Psalms for the Summer!

In July and August, we're teaming up with Sherbrooke Mennonite Church (just a few blocks away at 7155 Sherbrooke St.) to do a Summer Pulpit Exchange on the Psalms. This means that both congregations will get to hear from Sherbrooke and FUMC pastors (James Wittenberg, Lydia Cruttwell, Tim Froese, Greg Thiessen, and Joon Park) preaching on their favourite psalms!

A full schedule will be posted soon, but in the meantime, here's a link to a recent short film made about the Psalms, and documenting the friendship between musician Bono (of U2) and biblical scholar Eugene Peterson. Enjoy!
