Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenidos!

Harmony, Unity, Wholeness, and Justice, Peace, and Salvation—all are Shalom. Welcome to FUMC, where it is our desire to be a place of Shalom for all, a faith community joining together in the movement towards God’s vision for the world.



Announcements

Church Work Day

On Saturday June 4th from 9am to 2pm, our church will be joining together with First United Spanish Mennonite Church and Mission Baptist Church to give our buildings some love! Please join us to do some cleaning, painting, pressure-washing, and perhaps even landscaping -- wear work clothes and bring a bag lunch along.

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!

Camp Squeah Church Retreat!

During the Victoria Day long weekend, FUMC is going on the road! We're going to be spending a few days up at the beautiful Camp Squeah, on Hwy #1 near Hope. Hopefully you've all gotten your signup sheets in to Danny already (they were due on May 8th), but if not contact the church office or Danny Hildebrand right away, and we'll make sure to get you in.

This is a great time for our church community to come together in God's creation, having fun, connecting with one another, and communing with our Maker.

[NOTE: this retreat, plus our joint service on May 15th (see below), means we won't be having a service at our regular 10am time for the next two weeks. If you would like to go to a Sunday morning service in English, we recommend Sherbrooke Mennonite Church -- 7155 Sherbrooke St., Vancouver. They meet at 10:30am on Sundays.]

Kingcrest Fundraiser and Pentecost Service

Two events happening this weekend:

Saturday, May 14th: KINGCREST COMMUNITY BBQ AND CAR WASH FUNDRAISER
Come on out to the Education building for a delicious BBQ lunch (starting at 12) and a car wash (12:30-2:30), all in support of Kingcrest International Neighbours (a Christian non-profit organisation that helps newcomers, immigrants, and refugees, primarily through ESL classes).

Sunday, May 15th: PENTECOST JOINT SERVICE WITH FUSMC
Instead of our usual 10am service, we'll be joining FUSMC at 4:30pm for a joint service. We've got a lot to celebrate together -- Pentecost (the coming of the Holy Spirit and birth of the church), Communion (gathering around the table of the Lord and celebrating God's forgiveness), and also the ordination of Lydia Cruttwell (a confirmation of her call from God and from the people to minister in the Mennonite Church).
