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.
Osheta shared with us about subversive joy. Not a saccharine, everything is fine, ignore our suffering joy, but a joy that is an act of defiance against the forces of despair in our world.
Give it a listen!
Mennonites claim to be a people of peace. But what does it mean to be a people of peace? Though, through time, the notion of “peace” that Mennonites have embraced has shifted, at no point was peace ever simply relegated to an inner-heart peace that did not impact the way one existed in the world.
Jesus washes his disciples’ feet. And he even washes the feet of the one who would betray him because Jesus washes feet indiscriminately. He serves all indiscriminately. Are there people in our community whose feet you do not want to wash? Are they your Judas? Do you not agree with their “lifestyle”? Or do you simply not wish to place yourself in such an intimate relationship with another? Similarly, do you seek to avoid having your feet washed? Why?
