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
WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY
World Communion Sunday will take place on Sunday, October 1. On that day we celebrate with Christian communities throughout the world who will be joining with each other for communion. We ask that you bring some bread to share from your heritage. After church we will be having sandwiches made from a variety of ethnic breads. Cold cuts, tune, chicken, and egg salad will be provided.
NEIGHBORS IN NEED
October 1, we will also be taking our special "Neighbors in Need" offering. This will help support churches in the hurricane devastated areas to provide food, shelter, and social services to those who are now in the process of repairing and rebuilding their lives and their homes.
BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
On Sunday, October 8, we will be having our "Blessing of the Animals'" service in our sanctuary. All critters are welcome. We ask that dogs be on leashes and other pest be in containers. This is a great time to buy a bag or dog or cat food to donate to the Foothill Unity Center.

On Saturday, November 4 from 8-12 N (set up at 7 a.m.), we will be having our fall yard sale. We are asking you for those precious items from your closets and garages that you would like to donate once again. We will be setting the sale up during the week prior to November 4 and if you are able we would appreciate your help in the afternoons. Please let Judy know if you are available to help at those times. We need all your help to make this sale a success. This is a very effective fundraiser for our church.
