New Sermon Series: The Simon Peter Story!

Christ is Risen! Having celebrated Easter and the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, we're now embarking on a 12-week sermon series on one of Jesus' closest disciples, Simon. Also called Peter (aka The Rock, which is one of my favourite Biblical nicknames ever!). This former-fisherman-turned-Jesus-follower-turned-early-church-leader has quite the story, from his dramatic calling in a sinking boat in the lake of Gennasaret (that's this week's sermon!) to his denial of Christ just before the Crucifixion to his receiving the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost and becoming a powerful preacher to both the Jewish and Gentile people.

Come join us as we learn about this simple man and his great leaps of faith (and his even greater slip-ups and failures), and see how even his weak and shaky faith was used by God in powerful ways.

Last Lenten Prayer Meeting -- This Wednesday at 9am!

Come and join us in the Sanctuary for our last Lenten Prayer meeting of Lent 2013 -- this Wednesday March 20th, at 9am. Together we will reflect on Jesus' road to the cross, and Jesus' call to us to "turn from our selfish ways, take up your cross and follow". (Mt. 16:24)

Check out the 'Sermons' Page!

We're slowly getting ourselves up to speed, technologically, and figuring out the best way to record and share some of the great sermons we're privileged to hear on Sundays at First United Mennonite. So, do remember to head on over to the 'Sermons' tab on a regular basis and see what's there! Our most recent offering is from Willard Metzger, Executive Director of Mennonite Church Canada.
