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.

Singing Groups and church choirs from Southern California and Nevada will be featured at this event. They will be sharing their native songs.

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
On Sunday, October 13, we will be having our "Blessing of the Animals" worship service. Bring your pets to church, but make sure that dogs are on a leash and cats, birds, bunnies, etc. are in a carrier or cage. This is always a fun event.
