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.

A Few Dirty Words: Holiness (James 1:17-27)

We often separate “social justice” from more “religious” ideas of holiness, but Jesus does not artificially separate these. He teaches us that the tree and the fruit are intimately tied together. A tree is known by its fruit, and it matters who we are and what we do.

But this is not a call to perfectionism. Rather, James tells us to develop habits of listening and reception, to encounter God, who plants good seeds, who tills the garden, nurtures the soil, and grows the tree, so that we might be doers of God’s peace and justice as people tilled by God the Gardener, illumined by Jesus the Sun.

Being Rooted in Love

On July 8th, Tim Reardon referenced David Benner’s book Surrender to Love, asking our congregation, “Imagine God thinking about you — what do you think God feels when you come to mind?” Though we might have various responses, he went on to describe that we are created out of love by a God whose essence is love; that Love is the source and ground of our existence — an unending mystery that extends beyond and precedes time and space; that sustains us, holds us, and extends to the innermost parts of our being.

We All Need a Savior

On July 1st, Tim Reardon talked about Luke 18:18-30 and Luke 19:1-10 — and the difference in how a rich ruler approached Jesus in comparison to the story of Zacchaeus. What did it mean to be a wealthy ruler in Jesus’ time? How did this differ from Zacchaeus, in spite of his wealth? Zacchaeus was “small in stature” — likely more a reference to his status than his height. What is the focus of each? How does Jesus receive each of them, and why? Who do we identify with?
