Raising the next generation

to become fully devoted followers

of Jesus Christ


We are Resurrection people, and we believe, more fervently than ever, that Jesus death and resurrection are the central message of God’s redemptive plan.  So we hope, even with our government-mandated restrictions, we can learn a new way to worship together.


On Maundy Thursday, April 9, we urge you to gather at home for a meal with your family followed by music and the re-telling of Jesus’ last supper. Pastor Larry will speak the words of institution of the Communion, and you are invited to share a piece of bread and some juice with each other.  Click here for the Maundy Thursday Guide.  

On Good Friday, April 10, our traditional pilgrimage along the stations of Jesus’ cross will be replaced by a virtual experience.  Click here for the Good Friday Guide.

On Easter Sunday, April 12, tune in by Facebook or YouTube as we greet the resurrection morning with trumpets and singing, “Christ the Lord is Risen Today”, and the message of Easter hope.  

We invite you to download the Holy Week devotional guide, You Are There,  by Larry Ballenger and Shawn Halim, by clicking the link at the top of this page.

Please pray with us each Wednesday night at 7:00 at www.arcadia.church.
