Community Groups

Community groups at Pasadena Mennonite are:

 

·       Spaces to grow deeper together and with God: Our hope is that our time together will be a means for us to grow in fellowship and attend to our common spiritual lives, understanding how God is working with each of us.

·       Open spaces of invitation for anyone: Community groups are meant to grow deeper together, but they are also meant to be spaces porous enough to join, to welcome genuinely, and to have an open seat for whomever is next to partner with us.

·       An alternate entry point: Community groups are not “the next level” of church so to speak, but a place where we can be the church together. Perhaps you have a hard time connecting on Sundays. Community groups might be a great alternate place for you to connect to the community.

·       A reflection of who we are and want to be:  We are people made to be in community together. Our commitment to community groups is a commitment to not simply be participants and spectators but to be partners together.

Affiliated Groups

Peace Fellowship

For those of you who live further east, this group meets weekly in Claremont (generally). Its members are from all over, some of which are PMC members.

Contact Al Dueck: dueckal@gmail.com

 

Urban Village

This group meets in Pasadena and consists of those in and outside of PMC. Many of the group live intentionally in proximity to one another, but the group is not limited to this at all. You are welcome anytime, though on the third Sunday of the month, there is a social hangout night, which may help you ease in.
