Beachy Amish

From Anabaptistwiki

The Beachy Amish are a progressive branch of the Amish church. They split from the Old Order Amish in 1927 and unlike more conservative groups, allowed use of electrical conveniences, tractors, and automobiles. They also allowed Sunday schools on alternating Sundays.[1] Click the following link to learn more about other groups in the Anabaptist Family.
