Welcome!
We invite you to be part of our community of grace and faith, active in Thunder Bay for the past 111 years. We seek to continue to be a place where people can grow in their understanding of God's forgiving love revealed through Jesus. Gathered in to worship, God's Spirit calls us out to share in word and action what it means to be people of God.

OUR VISION:

"Come share the gifts of God -

serve the world"

'Reconciliation':
Reserve 107. This powerful film centres on the true story of what happens when a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird SK discover that the land on which they live is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation.  Through storytelling, we hear about an unique movement in history, where relationships are formed.
