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.

NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS|
The Foothill Unity Center really needs our help to feed the thousands of low-income families in our area. We will be keeping a basket out every Sunday for canned food, beans, rice, and other non-perishables, but especially want to encourage you to remember those who are less fortunate on the first Sunday of the month when we share communion with each other.

You can bring them on Sundays and we will put them in the garages or the week before the sale and you can place them directly in the narthex. Please sign up if you are able to help set up for the sale Monday through Friday of the week prior to the sale and of course we will need lots of help on the Saturday of the sale. We need all your support to make this sale a success.
