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.

CALLING ALL ADVENTURERS
On Friday, July 4th we will be venturing up the hill to attend the parade in Sierra Madre. Let’s meet at our church parking lot at 8:30 a.m. We’ll squeeze as many people as possible into cars because parking for this event is limited.

Our first “Staying Connected Barbecue” for the summer will be held in the tented area behind Prince Erik Hall on Wednesday, July 9, at 6 p.m. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided. Please bring a beverage, appetizer, salad, or dessert to share with others. Sign-ups will be taken in the narthex.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Thanks to Amy Calumpag, we will be having our first Vacation Bible School for both adults and children. It will be a five day program starting on July 14 at 6 p.m. We will begin with a simple meal and then explore “Living Waters for the World.” Our program will include Bible study, music, crafts, interactive games, and mission opportunities for our church. Please sign up in the narthex if you would like to attend.
The Foothill Unity Center will be holding its annual “Back to School Day” at the Santa Anita Race Track on Tuesday, August 5. Many members and friends of Arcadia Congregational will be staffing the backpack booth at this event. It’s still not too late to donate your check or buy those items for this worthwhile activity that helps young people from low-income families with their school supplies. A sign-up sheet will be in the Narthex though July if you are able to help with this event.
AN EVENING OF ANKLUNG MUSIC
The Sounds of Glory will be performing "An Evening of Anklung Music" at our church on October 4, 2014 from 7-8 p.m.These musicians have been performing throughout Southern California and familializing the Western audience with musical instruments fashioned out of bamboo. The resulting harmony of tones that the ensemble can coax out of varying lenghts of bamboo produces very pleasant music with more than a hint of the exotic.This will be a fundraising event for our church. Donations only.
