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.
For Epiphany, we had multiple reflections that touched on God’s real tangible concern for justice, peace, and life with attention to three passages, Isaiah 60:1-6; Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14; and Matthew 2:1-12. Two of these reflections were from Tim Almquist and Eddie Beres.
“I am glad, brothers and sisters, that our church is persecuted precisely for its preferential option for the poor and for trying to become incarnate in the interest of the poor…” This week we remember Jesus’s incarnation, consider God’s presence with us in body and solidarity, and reflect on the incarnationn through the living parable, Oscar Romero.
This week, Rob led us in our reflection for the fourth Sunday of Advent on Luke 1:26-38. Here we find Mary as an example for us in responding to God’s purposes, and we learn from her what it means to “let it be.” How do we respond to interruptions? How do respond to the unexpected?
In Advent, we continue to focus on our need for a savior. We anticipate the hope, but we reflect, in our brokenness, “God, where are you?” How can we find wholeness in our brokenness? Dotti reflects on this this week in here sermon “Can I Be Whole When I’m Broken.”
