Community Dinner -- Thursday November 16th

Come one, come all, to our next "Community Dinner" at 6pm on Thursday November 16th in the church basement. Come have some free food and have a chat with your neighbours, both from our church community, and from the surrounding neighbourhood. We want to build relationships and show the love of God to all!

Peace Sunday

As we draw near to Remembrance Day, we seek to remember those who have died in armed conflict, and to work for peace in the world. We encourage everyone to take extra time to pray for peace in the coming days, and offer this resource (from the Mennonite Central Committee) as a guide to your prayers:

May the Prince of Peace rule in our hearts and throughout the world!

Pastoral Candidating -- Q&A this Saturday!

Come join us in the church basement this Saturday, November 11th from 9-11am as we hear more from Adam Back, our pastoral candidate. Pastor Lydia will be asking him some questions about his life and ministry experience, and then you'll get a chance to ask him some questions of your own. Coffee and treats will be provided as well!

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!
