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.

FOOTHILL UNITY CENTER SCHOOL SUPPLY BOX
The school supply box from the Foothill Unity Center is here. Let's do a great job of filling it with supplies for the children of our neighbors in need. They count on our support to help them have a successful school year. Your generosity is truly appreciated. The box will be picked up the week of July 15th.
40 DAY MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR VANGIE HERRERA
We will be having the 40 Day Memorial Service for Vangie Herrera on Sunday, July 21 at 11:30 a.m. following our worship service. If you are planning to attend, please bring food to share at the reception to follow this special service.
ALL CHURCH RETREAT
This year we will be holding an all church retreat instead of our Vacation Bible School. We will be deepening our spiritual life as well as planning for our church's future. We will meet at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 3rd under the tent. If it gets too hot that day we will move inside Prince Erik Hall. This should be a very enlightening experience.
"BACK TO SCHOOL" EVENT
Those of you who donated either school supplies or a check to the Foothill Unity Center have helped to support to this year's event which will be held on Tuesday, August 6 at the Santa Anita Race Track. We will have a large group staffing the backpack booth. This will be our twenty-first year. Your support really makes a difference in the lives of young people from low income families in the San Gabriel Valley.
