Community Life for Adults

Adult Choir

Our adult choir practices every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. We invite all in grade 9 and up who enjoy singing and who wish to offer their singing to the worship of God to join the choir. The Adult choir sings in the worship service two times per month.

Small Groups

We feel it is important for us to get to know one another in settings other than Sunday morning worship. The following opportunities are planned with the various needs and schedules of our congregation in mind:

Daytime Bible Study

A group that meets Monday afternoons (1:00-3:00 pm) for Bible Study, conversation and coffee. Children are welcome (but not required).

All-comers Bible Study

A group that meets Thursday evenings (6:00-7:00 pm) for Bible Study. No attendance is taken - join us when you can!

Quilting Plus Group

This group meets Tuesdays, 9:00 am-noon to work on a variety of projects. They alternate between working on personal projects and making tied quilts for Mennonite Central Committee. Quilt tying happens each week.

Family Fellowship Group

This group is for families of all ages, shapes and sizes, including families of one! Particular appeal may be for those families with children 12 years old and under. It is an opportunity to connect with other families, foster friendships, have fun and grow in your faith. There will be a monthly gathering with a planned activity and short devotional. Swimming, skating, tobogganing, games, and wiener roasts are some examples of activities. Families will take turns organizing each event.

The Socialites

The Socialites are a group of adults that meet for fellowship and socialization. They meet approximately every 6 weeks either in people's homes or at activities.

FMC Seniors

This group meets once a month for afternoon coffee at the church. The Seniors group has attracted 25 to 30 people. We have had potluck suppers, brunch at a Tea House, pancake breakfast, as well as discussion evenings.

FMC Women

Inter generational activites are planned through out the year including fundraising events (soup and pie lunch, watermelon and rollkuchen supper), arts afternoon, guest speakers, Bible study and more.

Sharing and Caring

This group provides an opportunity for fellowship while attending social activities, partaking in potlucks, sharing, caring and praying for each other. Those attending are primarily 'empty-nesters' who enjoy visiting without children. People take turns hosting each month.

Truth and Reconciliation Action Group

In 2016, First Mennonite Church responded to the Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action Number 48 IV. We as a church will work towards reconciliation and to become more intentionally welcoming of Indigenous peoples. Participants of TRAG will build on an attitude of reconciliation and collaboration and journey together to promote learning and reconciling with our Indigenous neighbours. The Group will be mutually respectful, participant-led, and meet often throughout the year (casual attendance is welcome).

Ecological Footprint Leadership Group

This group was formed as a response to increasing evidence of environmental damage. We will work to find ways to help the church as a whole and each of us as individuals and families to reduce our ecological footprint and care for God's creation. We welcome all to occasional potlucks and events.
