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.

UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS
ADULT BIBLE STUDY
Our Adult Bible Study program continues on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in the Fireside Room. We are exploring the Minor Prophets which are found in the last twelve books of the Old Testament. All are welcome to attend.
WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY
On October 6, we will be celebrating World Communion Sunday. After our worship service, we will be having a potluck and invite everyone to share some food from their ethnic heritage.
NEIGHBORS IN NEED
On Sunday, October 6 we will also be taking a special collection for our “Neighbors in Need” during the worship service. Your generosity will go a long way to support the projects of our Global Ministries. Neighbors in Need is a special mission offering that supports the ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to UCC churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing and advocacy to address systemic injustice. This year, special consideration will be given to projects focusing on serving our immigrant neighbors and communities.
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.
Our church depends on our members and friends for its support. We are able to offer quality music, a variety of worship experiences, educational programs, Christian education for our young people, special events, and travel opportunities because of your generosity. On Saturday, November 2nd we will be having a Stewardship potluck dinner in PEH at 5 p.m. On Sunday, November 3, pledge cards will be distributed for the purpose of creating a budget for 2020.
