Laura Sechman, our new Office Administrator, is also an extraordinary baker, and she is preparing Ukrainian Flag cookies.  The cookies, packaged separately, are to encourage donations to the United Church’s Ukrainian Emergency Appeal through the Mission and Service Fund.  Please make cheques payable to TMUC, with M and S Ukraine Appeal in the memo line.  Cash donations are also welcome.  Online donations can be made here.

We invite you to continue to pray for peace each day. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing. Pause at 6 p.m. and Pray for Peace. We will #StandWithUkraine!

TMUC returns to in-person worship this Sunday (March 27) at 10 a.m. Our mask and vaccination policies continue and there is Sunday School!
