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.

Picking Up Righteousness

On June 24th, Lisa Lockwood Thornton of PICO California (www.picocalifornia.org) talked about the lectionary passages — 1 Samuel 17:38-45 where Saul dresses David to enter battle with Goliath, Psalm 9:7-10 about God establishing justice in the the world, and 2 Corinthians 6:1-10 where through adversity Paul says they carried the weapons of righteousness — in light of her presence at a border action at the Otay Mesa Detention Center over the previous two days.

Here I delve in deeper with the help of Willie James Jennings.

Pentecost—A Baptism of Love

On June 3rd, Melissa Hofstetter spoke to Mark 2:23-3:6, beginning with the connection of baptism to census and taxation at the time of the formation of the Mennonite faith, and a move to adult baptism as a sign of discipleship—just as Jesus was baptized as an adult. Pentecost is a season when believers celebrate their collective baptism in the Holy Spirit. For Jesus, this time would have been Shavuot, which marked the harvest festival 7 Sabbaths after Passover. Pentecost, the pouring out of the Spirit of Jesus, marks a harvest of his disciples, reaping the radical love that Jesus has sown in their hearts.
