Summer Sermons! (x4)

There are four (that's right, FOUR) new sermons available for your listening/reading pleasure under the sermons tab at the top of the page. Rich treasures from the minor prophets are just a few clicks away!

Summer Fun: Movies and BBQ's

This coming Friday, August 9th, we'll be having our second summer movie -- this time it's WALL-E, that little trash-collecting robot and his journey there and back again. Come on out to FUMC Friday night at 7pm (or a little before -- the movie will start right at 7) and settle yourself in to have some popcorn and enjoy the show!

In three weeks time, on Saturday August 24th, we'll be having our annual Neighbourhood BBQ in our back parking lot from 12-3pm. There will be free food, live music, and games for all ages. If you're interested in helping out with this event, feel free to contact Al Fleming (604-274-3341, or

We've printed up flyers for both of these events -- take some for yourself and your neighbours, and spread the word about these great community connectors!

Acting Justly and Loving Mercy

As our own Aften Thiessen speaks to us from the book of Micah this Sunday, here are a whole host of links you can follow up on current efforts to make our world more just and more merciful:

Mennonite Central Committee
International Justice Mission
Truth and Reconciliation Commission
Christian Community Development

And for those of you who prefer the printed word to the internet, here's two book recommendations:
"Irresistible Revolution" by Shane Claiborne
"Restoring At Risk Communities" edited by John M. Perkins

UPDATE: For those interested in listening to the CBC Radio show Ideas that Grant mentioned on Sunday, here's the link: Idolatry for Beginners. A fascinating reminder that even those who don't hold to faith still recognise that much of what we learn in Christianity (about the best and the worst that humanity has to offer) is true.

Ongoing Summer Small Groups!

In these long, sunny summer days, there's often a joy in having some extra time to spend outside and with those you love... but sometimes, there's also a bit of boredom, as you're not quite sure what to do with all your free time! If you find yourself at loose ends, feel free to join our ongoing prayer and fellowship groups -- the St. George small group is made up of young adults (20's and early 30's) and meets every Tuesday evening at 7pm at various location, and the Listening Prayer Group meets every Thursday evening at Jon and Janna Janzen's house near the church. If you're interested in either of these and would like more details, please call the church office or email us!


Coming Soon to a Church Parking Lot Near You: FUMC's Summer Movie Night (part 1)!

That's right, on July 19th, at 9:15pm (just enough time for it to start getting dark) we'll be screening the movie August Rush (Click Here for the IMDB details) for church folk and neighbourhood friends alike. Come join us for some good summer watching, some popcorn, and a chance to mingle with our neighbours!
