Community Dinner: Tuesday April 24th

Come on out for our next Community Dinner on Tuesday April 24th at 6pm. These are great times of food and fellowship with our church community, ELL students from Kingcrest, and folks from our neighbourhood. Come on out to make some new friends and have a great meal!

(if you'd like to help out, please let Lydia or Adam know -- we'd love to have a 'cleanup crew' so that our hardworking cooks don't have to do all the work afterwards.)

The evening will feature Calvin and a number of his friends, including the Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir, The Alumni Project and the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra. A highlight of the evening will be the Moipei Trio, from Nairobi, Kenya.

Name Change Proposal for FUMC

FUMC Name Change: Post-AGM Update and Proposed Motion

What’s happened so far? How did we get here?
We are delighted that this proposal has been well received – we all seem to agree that the time has come for us to change our name. The problem is, from the ‘straw poll’ we took at our AGM, we found that three names had roughly equal amounts of support: South Vancouver Mennonite Church, South Vancouver Peace Church, and Peace Church on 52nd. So the Vision Committee needed to take time to consider which of these three names we thought was best for our church at this time. Our decision was that “Peace Church on 52nd” is the best of these three names, and it was seconded by the Church Council after discussing it at a recent meeting. Below is the motion, and some reasons as to why we are recommending this particular name.

Mission Blog #3 - Who in the World Does Mission?

I argued in the last blog that the where of mission is comprehensive—all of creation, all of human life, all of human culture, etc., fall within the scope of God’s mission. Nothing is swept under the rug or overlooked. Mission is also comprehensive for the who of mission. In this post, I want to continue broadening the horizons of mission for how we understand revitalization, church and our lives within community. So, who in the world does mission?
