New Church Name! (Coming Soon)

On Sunday June 3rd, our membership voted 80% in favour of adopting a new name, "Peace Church on 52nd". We are grateful to be moving forward with a new name that we believe will help us reach out to our neighbours more effectively, but also recognise that this change is hard for some of us -- we've been "FUMC" for 80 years now!

We still need to do some work to officially 'launch' our new name (with new signage, a new website, etc.), and we're hoping to do that in the fall of this year. In the meantime, we'll continue to be "First United Mennonite Church" in all our official documents (including on donations), although we'll start informally referring to ourselves as "Peace Church on 52nd" in our services and meetings.

May God guide us in this change and in our revitalisation!
