    I attended a Gaither Homecoming Concert in State College, PA, last year. There were a large number of people who attended the concert who were either Mennonites or Beachy Amish. Can you tell me which group it was who attended? I would think they must watch TV. How else would they be familiar with the Gaithers? I also see a number of the teenage girls who wear light colored dresses with white sneakers.

      New Order

      Horse and Buggy vs the use of cars. New order services are in German vs Beachy are in English. Not much else.

    I guess now my question is: what order of Mennonites dress somewhat similarly to the Beachy Amish, but listen to Christian music & will attend Gaither concerts? The girls wear dresses in pastels of yellow, pink, blue, or lavender, and wear white sneakers & white socks. The men seem to not have beards.

  • John, “attending Gaither concerts” is not a defined practice of any particular religion. Perhaps you saw nonbaptized Amish young people, perhaps they were Mennonites, perhaps just ordinary folks who dress plainly. If you really want to know, you’d have to ask them directly.

      Most likely the girls at the concert were a type of Mennonite. Just because they were at a Gaither concert doesn’t mean they watch TV or that they aren’t church members. There are groups of Mennonites that allow computer and Internet access and that also are okay with Christian music. They could easily have found out about the concert online or something.

    There are Beachy churches in about 26 states.

    mennonites

    there are many types of mennonites, alot of which you wouldn’t know it if you didn’t know them. Holdemans are alot like the beachy’s as far as beards bonnets and electronics and beliefs. they even practice a very weak type of shunning. if a member marry’s outside the church then the spouse is welcome to the family table but not the family member. i have many friends this has happened to. there are more than 100 branches of amish and mennonites, and they all vary somewhat

    Yes ! He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. Mark 16:16. I have a comment on “The Amish in Garnett, Kansas” post, which you might want to go back to and read.

      Get a direct link to comment

      Just a quick tip that might be of help for anyone who wants to refer back to a previous comment.

      If you copy/click on the link within any commment right next to the words “Comment on”, that will give you the link to go directly to that comment.

      In this example, the link is on the words “Get a direct link to comment” (directly below my name). Copy that and the link you get will take you right to that comment on its position on the page.

      Can be handy, if there are a lot of comments on a given post, and you want to jump right to a specific one. If that makes sense.
