Thank you for visiting our website!
Welcome from the staff and congregation of the Acton Community Presbyterian Church! We are delighted that you have visited and hope that you will find information, interesting features, encouragement, and resources during your visit. For 126 years--since 1888-- Acton Church has been the "hometown" church for Acton, California, and we would love being your church as well. We would be honored if you chose to visit and worship with us. The Church now begins a new year, a new cycle in which believers remember and respond to the birth, life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Advent is not about getting ready for Christmas. It is about looking toward the Second Coming of Christ even as we remember his first coming in poverty and humility. When he returns, he will come in great power and great glory. Now is a great time to establish a connection with the hometown church and to make time for your spiritual well-being. It's one of the "coolest" places in town!! We are genuinely committed to being a "Community Church" and not just a "church in a community."
If you have never visited and are considering doing so, or if you are considering relocating to our area, we would love to have you be our guest for worship and participation in any of our activities.
When you visit Acton Church, you will find:
Rev. Dr. Robert T. Cassell, Interim Pastor
1888-2015-- Celebrating Heritage and Hope
"Lo, He comes with clouds descending,
Once for our salvation slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of his train;
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ the Lord returns to reign!"
-- Charles Wesley
Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
Almight God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life imortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

With a spirit of enthusiasm and excitement, the Acton Church Members and Friends welcome the leadership of the
Rev. Dr. Robert T. Cassell for the first months of 2013. Dr. Cassell is well known to the congregation having served as pulpit supply on a number of occasions before the retirement of Rev. Judith. He and his wife Judith are a welcome presence and have brought kindness, a listening ear, a sense of deep love for the congregation, and a continuous desire to provide the leadership that will aide the congregation through this transition toward the call of a permanent pastor in the future. Many may not be aware that Dr. Cassell has won a number of awards for his expertise as an interim pastor, has provided expert training to other pastors entering the field of interim pastoring, and has brought many years of first-hand experience to his present task.
