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.

On Saturday, November 3rd at 5 p.m., we will be holding our fall concert that will feature the Licata Brothers, Art Wild and the Earthlings, and Heather and Danny Fernando (Silliman University trained vocalists). Their selections should be fabulous! We will also be including dinner after the concert for a ticket price of $20. You will definitely want to attend this event.
ALL SAINTS SUNDAY
On November 4th, our All Saints' Sunday will honor the people in our lives who have made a positive difference.

We will also have candles available to light on this special day
On Saturday, November 17 from 8-12 N we will be having our fall yard sale. We are asking you for those precious items that you would like to donate once again. We will be setting the sale up during the week prior to November 17 and if you are able we would appreciate your help then and on the day of the sale. This is a very effective fundraiser for our church. We will need all the help we can get. Thank you for helping.
