Beachy Amish

The Beachy Amish are a group of Amish who are also known as the New Order Amish, instead of the traditional Old Order Amish. The are allowed to attend weekly sermons at a local Beachy Amish church, while Old Order Amish attend mass once every other week at different houses, where their sermon is preached. The Beachy Amish live with the Old Order Amish, as many Mennonites do. They are also allowed to have simple electricity such as alarm clocks. They are permitted to have mirrors also. The beachy Amish, unlike the Mennonites, who can wear many different colors and floral patterns, follow the same dress code of the Old Order Amish. The beachy Amish is yet another form of the Amish lifestyle.
