A Christmas Concert at the Pasadena United Methodist Church

Christmas concert at United Methodist Church
Attendance at the Christmas concert was larger than usual. The concerts are free.

On every third Saturday at 4 p.m. there is a free concert at the United Methodist Church on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena.  Cellists, pianists, singers, organists and, for the Christmas concert, bell ringers of all ages–all drawn from the congregation of this church.

Organ at United Methodist Church
This beautiful organ is at the center of church.  This photo was taken in November.

The church building is quite beautiful and the organ magnificent.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to capture the amazing stained glass windows, but , take it from me, they are gorgeous.

United Methodist Church Pasadena
Pasadena was founded by a group of Methodist farmers from Indiana and their city plan called from a church at 1 mile intervals throughout the city so no one would have to walk more than a half-mile to church on Sunday.
Homeless person by United Methodist Church
Before Ronald Reagan became President homelessness was not a major feature of America. As I was walking to the front of the building, I came across a homeless person nestled up against the church wall.
