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
On Saturday, December 5 at 10 a.m., we will be meeting to work on our garden areas. Because of the drought, we need to protect our trees and plants from drying out and the way our Buildings and Grounds Ministry team has decided is to mulch the beds. We need all the help we can get with this project and would love you to be part of it. If you have gardening tools, please bring them along. Sign up is in the Narthex

This year we will be celebrating “The Music of Christmas.” Not only will we be singing Christmas carols, but our choir will be performing four beautiful songs of the season. There will be an inspirational story and we will leave the sanctuary with our lighted candles singing “Silent Night.” Following the program, there will be a reception in Prince Erik Hall.
