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.
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.
Many of us know the inimitable Sue Park Hur, friend and sister of PMC. Ahead of her visit to us this Sunday, I wanted to write a more detailed introduction for those of us that haven’t had the honor to get to know her yet. She and her husband Hyun Hur have been on the Southern California Mennonite scene since they started a Korean house church called Church for Others in 2008 and later their non-profit organization, ReconciliAsian, in 2013. Sue and Hyun started ReconciliAsian as a ministry to equip Korean Church leaders with peacemaking theology and practices . . .
