Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenidos!

Welcome to FUMC, where it is our desire to be a place of peace for all, a faith community joining together in the movement towards God’s vision for the world. We are in the midst of a very exciting name change -- soon we will be 'Peace Church on 52nd' with a new webiste and new signs!


Easter Services

Easter is coming!

As we come to end of Lent and look towards Good Friday and Easter Sunday, we'll be having a number of special services to commemorate the most important holiday in the Christian calendar. Please take note of these services, and feel free to come to (and invite your friends to) any (or all!) of them:


Thursday, March 28th, 7:30pm -- Joint Footwashing Service (FUMC/FUSMC)

As part of our Anabaptist heritage, we celebrate Maundy Thursday (when Jesus, in the gospel of John, washed his disciples feet) by washing one another's feet and letting our feet be washed in a powerful symbol of what it means to serve and to be served in the name of Christ. This service takes place in both Spanish and English (with translation), and footwashing will occur in gender-specific groups.


Good Friday, March 29th, 10:30am -- Good Friday Service at Culloden MB Church (6060 Culloden St.)

This is a joint service with the five local churches involved in supporting Place of Refuge, our second-stage recovery house for men coming out of addiction. We will join together at the foot of the cross to worship Jesus, who gave himself up so that we all might have new life.


Good Friday, March 29th, 8pm -- Tenebrae Service

A quiet, contemplative service which uses scripture and action to meditate on the death of Jesus. This will take place in the sanctuary, and it is recommended that you bring small flashlights as the service will end in darkness.


Easter Sunday, March 31st, 10:30am

Easter Sunday ServiceWe will be celebrating the resurrection of Jesus together through word, song, and scripture. Come and join with us in proclaiming that He is Risen!

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.
