FUMC's 80th Anniversary -- "Remembering the Past, Building the Future"

Our 80th Anniversary Service for FUMC is next Sunday (October 29th) and we're excited to look back at FUMC's history, but also to look forward at what God might have for us in the coming years! We'll be celebrating communion together during the service, and having a potluck lunch together afterwards. The church will provide a special main course and dessert, but we'd like all of you to bring a salad (any kind you like) to share. Looking forward to celebrating, remembering, and dreaming together!

Mennonite Church Canada Special Assembly -- Results

Delegates to the 2017 Special Assembly in Winnipeg charted a new course for Mennonite Church Canada with a 94% approval of the Covenant New restructuring proposal. The new structure revisions MC Canada as the covenant partnership created by the five nationwide Regional Churches. Working together, Regional Churches have been mandated to foster the health and vitality of local congregations, who are engaged in mission in their immediate neighbourhoods and around the world. While delegates celebrated a structure that has served them well in the past and grieved its passing, they also embraced the vision of a vibrant, nationwide Mennonite Church that is actively engaging our world with the peace of Jesus Christ.

Prayers for Revitalisation

As we seek to revitalise, revision, and gain new life as a congregation, we recognise the importance of prayer. We must seek God's will, for it is only God who can revive us and give us new purpose, passion, and mission. And so we pray:

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we pray for the revitalisation of this congregation. Give us new and renewed vision, purpose, and passion, O Lord, that we may love you and love our neighbours more deeply.
