Arcadia Congregational Church is a member of the United Church of Christ, which is devoted to the concept that persons of widely differing theological understandings can join together to form a Christian community of faith. As individual members, we are free to believe and act in accordance with our awareness of God's will for our lives. But we are also called to live in a loving and accepting relationship with one another.
We are a church with an open table, inviting all who want to follow Jesus' message of love, forgiveness, and service to join with us in worship. Our church is here to nurture your spiritual quest.

We will have Bible stories, music, games, arts and crafts, and learning experiences that will explore the countries of Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, and Columbia. Our food will be native to the countries of our exploration. It is not too late to sign up in the narthex or call the church office at (626) 447-8053.
BACK TO SCHOOL EVENT
Those of you who donated either school supplies or a check to the Foothill Unity Center have helped to support to this year's event which will be held on Tuesday, August 7 at the Santa Anita Race Track. We will have a large group staffing the backpack booth. This will be our twentieth year. Your support really makes a difference in the lives of young people from low income families in the San Gabriel Valley.
Come and meet Muslims as well as other interfaith guests on Friday, August 24, at 6 p.m. in Prince Erik Hall. Muslims commemorate Abraham's willingness of sacrificing his son, who God saved and replaced with a lamb. Muslims celebrate this event by sacrificing a lamb. Come enjoy the program and the lamb dinner. Sign up in the narthex if you would like to attend
