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
ADULT BIBLE STUDY HAS RETURNED|
Adult Bible Study has resumed on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. and on Fridays at 3:30 p.m. We previously discussed the criteria that were used to choose the texts of our New Testament. Now we will have an opportunity to read some of the manuscripts that were left out because that did not meet these standards.
ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE
Our Ash Wednesday Service on Wednesday, February 18 at 6 p.m. is something you will not want to miss. It will be an interactive, hand- on experience for all ages. We will start with a light supper of bread, cheese, soup, and fruit in the Fireside Room. This will be followed by our service in the sanctuary. We especially need people to sign up for bringing food.
CALLING ALL ADVENTURERS
Our Adventurers’ Travel Group will be going to the China Town Lunar New Year’s Parade on Saturday, February 21. Because this is a very well attended event, we will meet at the church at 10 a.m. and then proceed to the Gold Line in Pasadena. This will be a super fun trip for all ages. Please sign up in the narthex if you would like to attend.
INFORMAL INTERFAITH GATHERING
Our monthly informal interfaith gathering will be held on Monday, February 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the parlor of Prince Erik Hall. We will be continuing our discussion of how our faith traditions teach us about social justice issues. Light refreshments will be served.
Our Lenten Series will begin on Wednesday, February 25 with a simple meal at 6 p.m. This series will be held for a total of five weeks on Wednesday evenings and will be about the history of the United Church of Christ. We invite you to sign up for sharing food.
