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.
