Summer Psalms -- full preaching schedule for FUMC

This summer we're doing a 'pulpit exchange' with Sherbrooke Church, which means we'll be hearing from James Wittenberg, Tim Froese, and Joon Park from Sherbrooke Mennonite (just down the road from us), as well as our regular preachers Lydia and Greg. All will be preaching on the Psalms -- the songbook of the bible! Here's what the schedule looks like:

July 3rd: Joint Service at Sherbrooke, Tim Froese, Ps. 1
July 10th: Joon Park, Ps. 23
July 17th: Lydia, Ps. 19
July 24th: Greg, Ps. 78
July 31: Lydia, Ps. 88
Aug 7: James, Ps. 13
Aug 14: Lydia, Ps. 126,
Aug 21: James, Ps. 103
Aug 28: Greg, Ps. 133

Movie Night and Joint Service at Sherbrooke!

This weekend we've got two special events -- a community movie night on Friday (July 1st) at 7pm in the church basement. It's free, family-friend, and there'll be delicious snacks. Friends, family, and non-churchgoers welcome. Come hang out with us before the fireworks!

And then, this Sunday, July 3rd, we'll be having a joint service at Sherbrooke Mennonite Church (just 10 minutes walk away at 7155 Sherbrooke St.) to kick off our summer pulpit exchange on the Psalms. The service is at 10am, and we'll also be having communion together.

Refugees Arriving soon!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the flight had to be cancelled and our refugees arrival has been postponed. Please join us in prayer for perseverance and patience as we wait for more details...

Our long-awaited Eritrean refugees will be arriving very soon, and we're very excited! Please pray for our refugee sponsorship team as they continue the search for permanent housing, prepare to meet these men at the airport, and help them adjust to their new life in Canada. Also, pray for these three men, about to fly halfway around the world to escape poverty, oppression, and danger. May God give them peace and courage in their new life!

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!

Prayer & Communion Service

Our final Prayer & Communion service before the summer break is THIS Wednesday, June 8th, at 7:30pm in the church basement. We invite all to come and join us as we pray for ourselves, our church, and our world, and as we gather around the Lord's table.
