Welcome to Pasadena Mennonite Church!
We are an Anabaptist community of people from throughout the Los Angeles, CA area—meeting in Pasadena.
Our Sunday gatherings begin with fellowship at 10:00am and worship beginning at 10:30am.
As a Mennonite community we value Christ centered-worship, community, and active peace-making.
We are convinced that Jesus came to turn this world upside-down, and invites us to follow.
The phrase “Jesus saves” can come with a lot of baggage, and for many it could signal an overly individualistic and restricted spiritual, inner reality. In fact, we are probably all too familiar with John 3:16 sign waving, and you may have been turned off by a street preacher or two telling you to believe right and get saved to avoid hell. However, what we find in the Bible and with Jesus is something more involved than just right belief and getting to heaven.
There are many lords in our world today whose only aim is to exploit resources, exploit people, accumulate stuff, money, power, control and they do this by sacrificing others in the name of freedom and national security.,, Paul tells the community that their unity and action is defined by the Lord who empties himself and gives himself for others.
This summer, we at Pasadena Mennonite Church will be going on a journey through some values that we have identified as “Anabaptist Values.” The goal of this series of sermons is to be spend some time reflecting on our tradition so that we might know ourselves better. Where have we come from? What tradition do we find ourselves in? How much do we (and don’t we) identify with this tradition? All of this is really an attempt for us to know our story and help us have a vision for who we are now and where we are going, our mission.
