Adult Groups

Getting connected at Arcola Church is about relationships that get beneath the surface. All of us need time each week with a smaller group of people who can get to know us personally, share life with us, and encourage us to pursue Jesus Christ.

Social Justice

We're exploring how we can spread God's justice, and be partners and advocates in racial equality, LGBTQIA+ relationships, and more.

Gospel Justice

Justice is who God is. Since we are a people who profess his gospel, it should be who we are as well. Join us on the third Thursday of every month as we explore how we can spread God's justice in a world full of injustice.
