The Amish men and women usually sit in separate sections for church itself. Hymns are sung from the Ausbund, a special hymnal used by the Pennsylvania Amish. There are usually three to seven preachers and bishops at a service.In most other Mennonite congregations, singing is in four-part harmony, sometimes accompanied by the organ or piano.
