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.

FORTY DAY SERVICE FOR DIDI SIMMINS
We will be holding a forty day service for long time church member, Caridad (Didi) Simmins on Friday, January 15th, at 2 p.m. A tradition in the Philippines is to have a memorial service for someone forty days after their passing. This service will be live-streamed on our Facebook page: Arcadia Congregational UCC.
MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR NOEL BURNDAHL
We were hoping to have a memorial service for Noel Burndahl much sooner than January. But the COVID 19 pandemic prevented us from gathering in the church, even though he passed away last June. We will be celebrating his life on Saturday, January 30th, at 2 p.m. on our Facebook page.
