Getting connected at Arcola Church is about relationships that get beneath the surface. That kind of relationship won’t come by simply attending worship services. 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.
Adult study groups provide a welcoming community of Christian learners and are a great way to grow in faith while practicing accountability and becoming stronger disciples for Christ. We offer on-going groups and short-term studies. Find a group that matches your interests and schedule.
Our Men's Ministry brings men together in a community of fellowship, outreach, and learning. We build men who are fully devoted followers of Christ. We have many ways to connect: attend the next Men's Dinner, Men's Retreat, participate in a Men’s Bible Study, a Men's Small Study Group Study, join the Arcola Brotherhood of Hikers or sign up for the Softball Team or Basketball Team. If you are interested in receiving a weekly e-devotional, email Jon McHenry. Contact Rich Goodwyn for all information on the men's ministries at Arcola Church.
Our Women's Ministry brings women together in a community of fellowship, outreach, and learning.
