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
SCHOOL SUPPLY BOX HAS ARRIVED
The school supply box from the Foothill Unity Center has finally arrived and is now waiting to be filled in our narthex. 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 successful school year. Your generosity is truly appreciated. The box will be picked up the week of July 15th.
FOURTH OF JULY BARBECUE
July 4th will fall on a Wednesday this year and instead of our "Keeping Connected Barbecue," we will have a great barbecue experience on the celebration of our Independence Day. We will gather at 6 p.m. and hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided. Please bring other food to share. Ice cream bars will be sold to support the Music Ministry of our church. We will then drive to a nearby park for a free firework display.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Our Vacation Bible School for all ages will be held on four consecutive evenings: July 30. 31, and August 1 and 2 in Prince Erik Hall at 6 p.m. Our curriculum comes from our Global Ministries and is titled: "Embrace the Fruits of the Spirits." We will have Bible stories, music, games, arts and crafts, and learning experiences that will explore the countries of Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, and Columbia. Our food will be native to the countries of our exploration.

The Foothill Unity Center will be holding its annual Back to School Day at the Santa Anita Race Track on Tuesday, August 7 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. We will be staffing the backpack booth and will need volunteers for each shift.
