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
Our Lenten Series continues on Wednesday, March 4, March 11, March 18, and March 25 with a simple meal at 6 p.m. This series is about the history of the United Church of Christ. We invite you to sign up for sharing food.
ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
"The One Great Hour of Sharing" collection will be taken during our offering on Sunday, March 15. This special offering will support mission projects in local communities that assist people with creating a better life for themselves. With very little administrative overhead, the money you donate to this offering goes a long way toward sharing your resources with others.
Our Palm Sunday celebration on March 29th will be a truly memorable experience of the entire congregation. We will all be provided with palm branches to welcome the coming of Jesus into Jerusalem.
INFORMAL INTERFAITH GATHERING
Our monthly informal interfaith gathering will be held on Monday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the parlor of Prince Erik Hall. All are welcome to meet people of different faith traditions.
On Maundy Thursday, April 2, we will be holding a Seder dinner at 6 p.m. in Prince Erik Hall. We will be hearing the story of the Exodus from Egypt and share a meal of matzo ball soup, latkes, marble cake, and lots of matzo bread. This meal will be followed by our Maundy Thursday Service in our sanctuary.
We will have a glorious Easter celebration at our regular worship time on April 5. This will be followed by an egg hunt for the children and a potluck luncheon. We need you to bring a main dish, salad, appetizer, dessert, or a beverage to share with others.
