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 his world upside-down, and invites us to follow.

Who Are the Gate Keepers? or Anabaptist Values 11: Discipline and Accountability

“Does that mean ‘my’ interpretations don’t matter?” No! Not at all! We should, however, be trying to always read better and understand our own limits. But also, honestly, if you come from a particularly dominant group of intersectionality your interpretations in all reality have already mattered too much for a long time.

Anabaptist Values 10: Stewardship

How we use our money ties to our core values. Jesus had a lot to say about money—how we horde money, how we exploit others with money, how we view the world out of scarcity, how we should seek economic justice, and how we should live in a community that cares for each other with money, with mutual aid in a way that cares for others as ourselves (and that’s just some of it!). Looking at Deut 26:1-15, Rob encouraged us to develop a posture of gratitude, a gratitude that we can have together.
