At Arcola Church you will discover a warm group of people dedicated to following Jesus Christ. From the moment you walk up to the building you can expect…
We believe that what we do within each ministry should flow purposefully out of what we value and love.
The purpose of Arcola Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Use these resources to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. ~11 Corinthians 9:7
Now is your chance to tell us how you would like to serve in the church this year. Even if you have signed up for a particular activity in the past, you will need to sign up for it again. Each person should complete his/her own Serving Others form.
