Individuals who feel a call to the ministry of prayer are added to an e-mail list, and regularly receive prayer requests about congregational and community needs. Every second month, the group gathers for prayer at 2 P.M. on Wednesday afternoons. Check out our calendar for the date of the next prayer meeting. For more information about this ministry, connect with Pastor Nancy.
Young adults are invited in to a variety of congregational events and supported in developing their own activities to catch up and share with each other, and plan other events. For more information about this ministry, connect with Pastor Christina.
Women’s Mission and Service Commission (WMSC)
WMSC meetings are a bi-weekly time of service and community-building, and are open to all FMC women of all ages (friends and neighbours welcome!). WMSC meets on Tuesdays from 9:30 am to 3 pm, and women are welcome to come for the whole day, or for part.
Activities include quilting, and comforter knotting – or you are invited to bring any of your own handwork projects for Mennonite Central Committee or another charity. There is always space, and lots of encouragement, for beginners!
Each person brings their own bagged lunch. Tea and coffee are provided. Treats are provided by those celebrating their birthdays. During the lunch hour at the first meeting of each month, there is a devotional time.
To speak with our WMSC coordinator, please connect with the church office.
The salad supper is an annual spring event for all women of the church for community-building, listening to a speaker and hearing about a current service project.
The First Friday of the month the women of First Mennonite have a monthly lunch together. It is a time of sharing and a time to enjoy lunch together.
Breakfasts are hosted occasionally on Saturday mornings, and always feature great food, good company and an inspirational speaker. Check out our calendar for dates!
A group of seniors from FMC and from Stirling Avenue Mennonite church meet monthly for social gatherings, bus trips, educational talks and service (often the 4th Monday of the month). For current information check the church calendar or connect with the church office.
