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.

So when we use the word see, I’d like us to think more broadly about noticing, recognizing and encountering God….”
